Speyside, GlenAllachie, Batch 2, Cask Strength Batch 3 & Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival 2018

@theglenallachie_ flight 🛫 tonight ...


This is another overdue tasting, on my earlier whisky journey I was fascinated by Glendronach, and learnt that previous Master Blender was Billy Walker, got excited and went to hunt some of the samples, with higher expectations to come visit them later.
