Shelter Point Artisanal Single Malt & Shelter Point Cask Strength

I’d like to thank Shelter Point for sending these bottles to the Toronto Whisky Society. Shelter Point Distiller is located on Vancouver Island. They pride themselves on being an artisanal distillery, and push for the idea of quality over quantity.

Glenburgie Archives 1995

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample. As many of you have seen, there’s some holes in my posts. And by holes, I mean that I’ve done over 1117 reviews and some distilleries have slipped through. I mean, I’m actually human, contrary to some of the popsicle stick body part rumours that are out there. One of the […]
