Glenfarclas 12

Special shout out to /u/Allumina for this (now not as much) elusive to me beginner’s dram. And a special shout out that I’ve nearly completed reviews of all the beginners’ drams! Yay me!

Why, it’s… Continue reading Glenfarclas 12

And more wood equals better, right? Probably not. I mean, we’ve already seen that climate affects the taste. Young whiskies can be good. There’s expectations of terroir that… Continue reading Girvan 47 year old 1965 (cask 9487) The Clan Denny
