Ailsa Bay Ceres I 9 2011 Scotch Universe

Girvan distillery is an industrial workhorse meant to ensure that blends have plenty of inexpensive, age-stated single grain whisky. Full stop. However, upon the same site you’ll find a new distillery, started in 2007. It’s name? Not Albert Einstein this time. Ailsa Bay creates four different single malt distillates, the majority of which all disappear […]

Whistlepig 12 Old World

Thanks to Mark Bylok from the Whisky Topic for this sample. No pressure, however they have a pretty cool podcast, so I recommend checking it out. Whistlepig is an interesting whiskey.
