Port Askaig 12 Year Old

Burn After Reading the label Port Askaig 12 Year Old

Nikka Black Special

Rush Hour whiskey Nikka Black Special

Nikka Black Special is a Coffey grain whiskey and it has been in the market since 1965. For me it was an everyday easily drinkable dram. That's why I decided to call it a Rush Hour whiskey. And just like…
