Glenmorangie 10 Year old - best surprise in a while
Just had this in a nearby bar. First single malt in a while, as I've been sipping bourbon and blends in the last few months. And wow! not at all what I expected. Glenmorangie was for me one of those … read more
Lagavulin 12 Year Old Bot. 2010 10th Release - Better than the 16? I think so
