When the fun loving and damn knowledgable chaps at The Whisky Exchange select a whisky to be Exclusive to them, they tend to get it right, so did they do it again with this 27 year old Blair Athol.
It's funny how these things come about, but a discussion on twitter about not having previously tried a Brora
I've had this dram sitting in my to do list for probably two years after it was sent to me by my friend Matt Veira (@mattveira) from the Guildford Whisky Blog and thought it was time to get it done.

Hey, it's Ben K here again helping Tom out, this time with a dram that is exclusive to the chaps at The Whisky Exchange, a delightful bourbon cask matured 8 year old Caol Ila .
Glenlivet, one of the best selling distilleries in the world, is one that I tend to enjoy, the standard 12 year old is one that I happily enjoy on a regular basis.
Occasionally as a Whisky Blogger I get to try some fabulous and exclusive whiskies and this Glenlivet 1998 bottled exclusively for the Whisky Brother Shop in South Africa is one such bottle.
When this sample arrived i thought yum instantly and wanted to get through it quickly but i've just realised it managed to slip through the pile of samples and has now sold out.
Thanks to my good friend Barry (@thewhiskyphiles) from The WhiskyPhiles blog for this sample of a 19 year old 1995 vintage Imperial from Signatory.
Another Exclusive to the chaps at The Whisky Exchange this 18 year old Mortlach was finished in a Sherry Butt for 54 months.
When i was hunting the Whisky Auctions for something interesting and found this set of four miniatures, it was this Rosebank that was the one I was most excited about.
