    I get a lot of freebies from MofM. This is Dewars 8yr old Carribbean smooth.
    They are 3cl bottles.
    A blend of malt and grain giving plenty tropical fruits and a nice rummy finish.
    Not bad actually.

    Château Pillebart 2019. Bordeaux AOC




    Fine, elegant Bordeaux, with lots of appealing fruit – a delicious, modern style of claret that makes great drinking from the get go. Top vintage conditions helped in 2019, so you can be sure of a glassful of ripe plum and cassis, with a leafy edge.
