Kilkerran 15 year old, 2004-2019, Fino Cask, 51.6% – OB for Bresser en Timmer

I have absolutely no idea how this one slipped by me. Maybe because I just wasn’t paying attention, but normally if there’s anything from Campbeltown in a Fino Cask coming out, I need to have it. Because it is delicious, … Continue reading

Longrow 11yo, Refill Re-charred Sherry Butts, 56.9% – Springbank Society
