I believe the answer is Edradour-Glenlivet
Rosebankfan wrote:Hey Willie - don't tell me you guys finished off that lovely Ardmore that Chris had - very nice.
Nick Brown wrote:I'd heard of Edradour-Glenlivet as the extreme example from Laura at the SMWS. Apparently it was a long, long time ago and led to efforts to clamp down on the use of the name Glenlivet. Glenlivet had become known as the longest glen in Scotland.

Bladnoch 6yo 56.9% sherrywood
Green Spot Irish pot still 40%
'Two of Clubs' 7yo Hanyu Japanese single malt 57% Japanese oak finish
North of Scotland single grain 36yo 51.1% (figures from memory) MWBH
Ledaig 11yo cask strength Cadenheads
and a mystery dram.
Rosebankfan you scored the Suntory 8 out of 10. Was this a mistake?
Star of the raffle 50yo Glenlivet from G&M, low point of raffle was Mekong.
Remember Onefortheditch I can post the drams out, not quite the same I know but better than a pint of Tennents in what was Millburn distillery, whats it called now?
