    Its cool how when I think you have shown all the impossible to find whiskeys of the world. You always manage to pull another odd unicorn out of your hat. These odd bottles will most likely never see U.S. shores but it is nice to know they exist in a land far far away.Never stop Grant . You are alot of fun and your posts make this my favorite thread.

    Cheers. Won't go on for ever I guess. I'm enjoying my stock and it's more palatable than eating vinyl .

    Anyway it's a Burgandy cask tonight.
    Tullibardine 228.

    228 represents the litre size of the Barriques of Pinot Noir from Chateaux de Chassagne Montrachet.
    Nice fruit in this with a good spicy finish. Think it was part of their signature range.
    Very nice anyway

    Follow up is the Aurora Sherry Cask from The Wolf.

    Originally founded in 1821 up in Thurso, and rapidly became a very big producer, within 5 years was making 125,000 litres of the stuff. A lot for any distillery far less one so far afield as Thurso.

    The new distillery is only a few hundred yard from where the old one was.. Some Caithness flagstones still show its position.

    This to me is the future of Scotch Malt. Both distillers here are young and full of ideas. Innes Macintosh and Charlie Fraser are the 'next generation'
