Review 645: Bowmore 1991 25 Year

Well hello my malt mates, it’s been a while since I had the change to write about a whisky. But now I have found the time to write about this Bowmore Bottled by Càrn Mòr as part of their “Celebration of the Cask Black Gold” series.

Review 577: Kilchoman Original Cask Strength 2010 6 Year

This bottle is fresh on the market (bottled on 29-09-2016), drawn for 95 Quarter Casks it yielded 12,000 bottles. It has been a while since I had a Kilchoman in my glass. This is mainly because I have a bigger appetite for un-peated sherry cask matured whisky at the moment. As we all know taste develops and changes from time to time.
