Awhile back, in anticipation of a neighborhood tasting, I headed out in search of two bottles to share. I was looking for something that I hadn’t had, and found the Tomintoul 16 and Glengoyne 17. While the Tomintoul didn’t live up to my expectations (curse those whiskies with […]

During a recent trip to Wegman’s, I assembled a mixed six with a predominantly English and German slant. The first bottle I pulled out of the six was the Fuller’s London Pride. Now, we had a lengthy discussion regarding aging when I came across a 2010 Fuller’s Vintage […]
