Springbank 1992-2019, 47.7% – Whisky Kingdom & Duckhammers Rare & Fine

I snickered at the name ‘Duckhammers’. It seems like a very inefficient hunting tool. Anyway, I got a sample of this in the mail a little while ago with the request to review it soonish. Unfortunately, it got ridiculously hot … Continue reading

Spirit of Freedom 30 years old, 46%
