More mystery malt. It's pretty good young Islay with some punch.

Just finished an old sample of Bladnoch 18 55%. Did someone once say these were all single casks, dunno, but it seems identical to a much later bottling of this that i finished last week.

Anyway, moving onto some Astar. It's got the minty thing going on again. Loads of mint.

Yes Bredman , most of the later Bladnoch bottlings were Single cask just bottled as they needed them at the distillery . Originally they did send them to a bottler to do in batches but i guess it was more economical to do when they were needed especially as they had their own bottling machine .

Well done you two!

Stochasicity Project from Stone
Grapefruit Slam IPA

It lives up to it but it is the bitter rind of the grapefruit.

Decided to add a little Kirkland Canadian to the mix, so to speak. Separate glass. I just was curious about how they work together.
