Screen Shot 2015-12-11 at 12.52.24 PMA range of whisky I’ve tasted a while ago, but never had the time to publish. Let me introduce to you, the fantastic 4.

This was part of a Twitter Tasting, held on October 28th, that I missed, unfortunately. But nevertheless I really enjoyed every drop in the bottles. But my favorite of the range from above is ….. the last one, The Ardmore Port Wood Finish, very surprising and it still lingers in my inner spirit when I think about the nosing, tasting and the joy I had while doing so.
