Issue that was immediately taken care of
My Blantons SFTB arrived with the seal broken and bourbon leaked in the package. I contacted Nestor, sent the old bottle back, and they shipped out a new one right away! Great service!

From a great selection of premium and hard to find liquor, competitive pricing, excellent customer service, careful packaging and through to prompt shipment as promised, I was greatly impressed. I will use them again and can highly recommend Nestor Liquor to anyone wanting to experience the same satisfaction.
Smooth with a real vanilla taste
When ordering during the Holiday I had a delay getting my order sent out. A few communications I sent were also delayed in answering. I did receive my order and Sarah communicated with me shortly there after explaining the huge number of orders they received and were working hard to get them out. She explained that they were also working to improve communications in the future. I believe that will happen.
Awesome customer service and communication. Great selection!
