Dallas Dhu 20 Signatory Vintage 1974

Well, not old. Possibly inebriated. Might have overdone it.

I mean… let’s look back. I’m the schmuck who started with a review of a Indian Blended Whisky, Desert Queen. On /r/scotch (before /r/worldwhisky was alive and well). No jokes, no explanation, just tasting notes and (what I thought) was a fair 72 for a decent sipping whisky.

    If someone is passionate about it wanting this bottle, contact me.
