The Speyside 18 1998 Fountana

Thanks to ScotchGuyTO for sharing this dram The Speyside isn’t really a distillery you hear much about. I’ve written before this is 100% due to the confusion inherent in the name. They make a single malt called THE SPEY all in caps like your uncle sharing a recent “totally true” and probably horrible fact on Facebook that […]

Knowing some of the other people at it (and what they drink and their ability to drink good things), I had high expectations. On the other hand, it’s a Benromach. Sure, it’s Benromach 39 1968 Sherry […]
