It’s been a while since I wrote these tasting notes, but it’s Springbank and Springbank is not something to just forget about and not review it. I am a self-professed Springbank Fanboy, although I don’t even buy that much of … Continue reading

At a point in time when whisky was still a lot more affordable De Whiskykoning was not just a bottle-shop, but also an importer of several brands. Stuff happened and things changed, but there is still some stash from back … Continue reading
