In the case of the Murray McDavid line, I think that, as you both mentioned, their expertise in selection is beyond compare. Their experience and history with second barrel/cask aging Scotch whiskies gives them an edge this way...they let the barrels do the work. I think that they put away the "bag of tricks" and rely on the drinker to study their product in multiple tastings. When I taste the recent multi-cask/barrel aging of some fine whisky, I am stunned by that "light, bright" subtlety which Matusalem mentions. I second Rum Runner's bewilderment for other lines of specialty rums, though.
