North Star Millennial Range

So you are an independent bottler. No, not because I said so, I don’t have that power. My superpower is leaving a film on glass, and someday the X-men will call because they are fighting the Sparkler. Marvel, call me for phase 5, I’m awesome. Back to my original point: You’re working as an independent bottler. In make-believe land. And you’re offered some less expensive… Continue reading North Star Millennial Range

Also the price was better… Continue reading Edradour 10 2007 SFTC Burgundy Cask Matured

Clynelish 21 1995 Signatory The Whisky Exchange

Thanks to /u/Saba007 for this sample. When it comes to Clynelish, there are two types of people: Those that enjoy them in ex-sherry casks, and those of you who I assume hunt down neighbourhood pets in order to drink their blood. I kid of course. There are people who love an ex-bourbon Clynelish. I have no issue with them. If anything, they are buying and enjoying whisky… Continue reading Clynelish 21 1995 Signatory The Whisky Exchange
