Linkwood 13, 2006-2020, 58.4% – Signatory Vintage

I think this was the first Linkwood in my collection, ever. It’s a recent release that came out a month or two ago, when the lockdown was just in place and my passion for whisky was rekindling. I might blog … Continue reading

Springbank 22, 1997-2020, 55.4% – Private cask for HMMJ

Private casks are a bit more rare these days, than they were a decade or so ago. This is in part because it’s much harder to purchase casks from Springbank, and in part because Springbank started buying casks back year … Continue reading
