Our 2005 Ballechin Burgundy Single Cask Single Malt Scotch is simply stunning. I knew from the moment that I stuck my nose in the glass that this needed to come home, for this is a malt quite unlike anything you have ever tasted, and for good reason, as not many people have ever heard of […]
Variety is the spice of life and variety is what we look for when we go searching for casks from Scotland. While I would love to have a repeat of our very first cask from the Isle of Arran Distillery or a replica of the GlenDronach sherry cask we brought back a few years ago, […]
