Speyside Region 1973-2016, 43yo, 49.2% – The Whisky Agency

The series this whisky is in is called ‘Good Vibes’. Generally that quite correct as to what I’m getting when having a dram of 1970s whisky. The whisky was distilled at an undisclosed Speyside distillery, which generally means Glenfarclas, but … Continue reading
