Mortlach 26yo, 1988-2015, 56.1% – Cadenhead

Since I’ve been going through heaps of samples over the last year to diminish that collection at home, I’ve encountered lots of stuff I forgot I had. There even was a sample of Brora and a Port Ellen in there. … Continue reading

Speyside 21yo, 53.1% – The Whisky Exchange, Black Friday
