Toronto Whisky Society’s <10yr/NAS Social Event

Looks like them Toronto Whisky Society boys (and ladies) are up to no good again folks. Just kidding, we’re always up to great good.

GlenDronach 18 1995 Single Cask Tawny Port Pipe

Thanks to /u/lasidar for a sample of this one. Honestly, I have samples of GlenDronach Single Casks. I really, really do. I just haven’t gotten to them yet. Lots going on. Too much, some would say.
