  • Glengoyne 10 year old - An unexpected malt!

    By Robert99 on 23rd Oct 20142014-10-23T05:00:00

    82

    Glengoyne is known to be the slow unpeated scotch. By that, I mean that Glengoyne never uses peat and the process used to distilled it is said to be slower than any other process used for scotch. Because… read more

    It was with much fanfare that legendary Irish whiskey Green Spot was made available in the States last spring. Produced by the Midleton Distillery (best known for Jameson), and made for and distributed… read more

    I bought this online at Hi-Time Wine for $45. I include the price for record. I haven’t noticed this in the store before but my salesman gave me a sample of the 12y and 15y, I enjoyed them both. One bit… read more
