Mortlach Rare Old

Thanks to /u/cpfselfbuilt for the sample. Mortlach has gone from “the Speyside we don’t know about” to being “the awkward elephant in the room of only Scotch nerds who don’t really know social niceties.” Yeah, that may be projecting. At least that’s it for me. A few years ago, I didn’t have many chances to try Mortlach […]

Mortlach 23 Blackadder Raw Cask

Thanks to /u/tvraisedme for this sample. Awhile ago I asked for Blackadder samples. After receiving some odd quotes from Rowan Atkinson and maybe a few too many remixes, people stepped up to trade me drams from the IB. So thank you people. You know who you are, and you’re not shitty baldrics at all. If you […]
