Happy #internationalscotchday2018 everyone! Thought I’d go a little off the beaten path with a couple little gems I found while in Scotland last year. Left is an exclusive to the @thewhiskyshop in Edinburgh. A nice 5 yo Islay with a hefty punch. The @lochfynewhisky Living Cask 1745 on the right is a blend from a “living cask”; meaning it’s a blend of Islay scotches from a cask that is constantly topped up and never empties. First I’ve ever seen or had like this and it’s a great melding of many Islay single malt flavors. Be sure to stop by these great spots if you’re ever in their neighborhoods.
