Thanks to /u/throwboats for the first two drams!
There’s this weird thing I have with Octomore.
I’ve reviewed a lot of them. And admittedly, living in Ontario, the part of Canada that hates alcohol that isn’t beer or wine (officially, the people still like it, but they are heathens), I started late, only ever seeing the 6th batch before anything else.
