Bunnahabhain 1990, 21yo, Jubilee Malt 2, The Whisky Barrel, 54.5%

It took me a while to find specs on this bottle online, since it’s apparently a release by The Whisky Barrel, but bottled by Whiskybroker.co.uk. Rather strange. Another strange fact is that the name of the distillery is widely known … Continue reading
