I was lucky enough to try this The Scotch Malt Whisky Society 72.37 Early Morning Walk on a recent visit to Queen Street with some friends to celebrate my friends birthday.
Always loving trying a The Scotch Malt Whisky Society whisky thats from a distillery that i haven't tried single cask whisky from so this 37.56 Sweet Tart and Spicy was a welcome treat.

I really like sweet Port finished whiskies so when i noticed this Benromach 2000 port finish it jumped up my to get list and a bottle was purchased.

I'd like to thank Iain (@iain_g_allan) the Visitor Centre Manager at Glen Moray for the very generous sample of this hard to find blended dram.
After discussing with Iain (@iain_g_allan) the Visitor Centre Manager at Glen Moray how much i was interested in label 5 and had arranged a bottle of the Classic Black from France Iain let me know tha
This particular dram i sourced via fellow whisky blogger and enthusiast Franck who was kind enough to buy a bottle at a french supermarket for me and send it all the way back to Scotland
I managed to miss this dram but luckily my good friend Steve (@steveprentice) from Somerset Whisky Blog had a bottle and sent me a dram of it.
I loved this dram so much when it came out that i bought 2 bottles and still have around 1/2 a bottle left.
This Port Charlotte Islay Barley, is the most recent release from the Port Charlotte stable and is a pleasure to drink.
This Port Charlotte Scottish Barley, which i happen to now have an unopened bottle of, is a cracking dram that i'm glad my very good friend Yoav (@yoavgel) of Whisky Gospel sent me to sample.
