Side by side: A pair of Loch Lomond Swan Neck finishes

@LochLomondMalts single casks bottlings are quite difficult to find, especially in the UK, last year I think we've seen less than five. Thanks to a mate in Germany I've managed to get my hands on another two!

Loch Lomond Swan Neck distilled single casks are even rarer - both of these are Swan Neck Pot Still distillations!

Side by side: Willowbank from New Zealand

 A chance to try four 20+ yo drams from a long closed distillery is always good!

These were a little different as they were from New Zealand!

Tullibardine The Murray - Triple Port

We all know how I love Port cask finished whisky (as opposed to full port cask matured whisky) and what better than a triple port cask matured whisky?

Let's try @Tullidistillery's latest in The Marquess Collection.
