Old Pulteney 17 Year Old

Makes Me Grin Old Pulteney 17 Year Old

So, I seem to be having the good fortune of bartenders making mistakes that go in my favor lately, and this was another. I ordered the Old Pulteney 12, and he accidentally poured me the 17. Sweet.Nose…

Macallan 18 Year Old Sherry Oak

Aberlour 16 Year Old Double Cask

A'Bunadh? Not Quite. Aberlour 16 Year Old Double Cask

After being spoiled by the A'Bunadh last week, I tried the 16. And although a very solid dram, it kind of feels like going from galloping on a horse to a nice trot. Still very fun, still highly enjoyable…
