End of the line. Good things coming to an end. It’s time to review the last Claxton’s sample I received earlier this year. As you’ve seen I’ve lined them up according to age. Therefor it shouldn’t be surprising that this one is the oldest. A Lowland whisky distilled at the Auchentoshan distillery, matured in a Sherry Hogshead and bottled at an age of 26. Should be nice, don’t you think?
Another week, another review of one of the Diageo Special Releases 2016. Again it’s a “Classic Malts” whisky. Despite being one of the classics I don’t think I’ve ever tasted a dram of Glenkinchie. What a way to have a first encounter with this distillery. Peter did have a 20cl bottle of the standard 12yo once but that was some years ago. We’re both very curious about this sample so let’s get started.
