    I have read the very encouraging recent reviews about this one at connosr.com and found a good reason to buy a bottle, because it comes at a cheap around these shores. I am sipping it, along with some … read more

    89

    An unchilfiltered blended whisky that’s e150 free (from the looks of it) and quite easy on the wallet. Nose: Sweet ripe spice, with very faint fruit and bitter chocolate. Light toffee and butterscotch… read more
