Ben Bracken 27 Year Old

Benromach 1973 Vintage
I've was lucky enough to be selected to join the Benromach Christmas Tweet Tasting, in conjunction with The Whisky Wire, and this 1973 vintage was the dram of the evening.
Glendronach 1985 cask 1037 PX Sherry Puncheon
This 1985 vintage matured in PX is a bit of an odd-ball as i was expecting it to be far sweeter than it was, with notes of spices, and lindt chocolate with chilli being at the front and some gentle sweetness hiding in the background.
Orchard Pig Charmer
It's almost Christmas and i'm still drinking Cider, this is yet another Supermarket find that i've picked up to try.
Glendronach 2002 PX Sherry Puncheon Cask 1504
I've been lucky enough to try a lot of good whiskies, some great whiskies and a handful of amazing whiskies over the years and even i was excited by the range of single casks in Glendronachs batch 14 releases.
Glendronach 1996 PX Sherry Puncheon Cask 1485
This 1996 single cask which was matured in a PX Sherry Puncheon hits all the right notes for me, frirst up no rubber, but it does pruens, sweetness and edges of that bitter dark chocolate that i love.

A heavily peated Islay single malt from an unnamed distillery at a reasonable price, yup i'm up for trying that.
