Westport 15yr Burns Malt (The Whisky Barrel) Review

Tomatin 12yr Burns Malt (The Whisky Barrel) Part of a wee series of Burns Malt single cask bottlings from The Whisky Barrel this is the Westport 15yr Burns Malt.

Westport is the name given to whisky distilled at Glenmorangie which has been "teaspooned" with Glen Moray, usually this happens when distillers sell off casks for blending so that they cannot be sold as single casks from the oiginating distillery.

Thanks Again to the guys at The Whisky Barrel for the official sample.
