1981 North Port-Brechin 24 years Connoisseur’s Choice Review

1981 North Port-Brechin 24 years Connoisseur’s Choice is a fun tasty little malt from a dead distillery.

The Malt Nuts met once again, bringing with us a selection of 14 different Bruichladdichs.

1983 Glenesk 20 year Duncan Taylor Review

1983 Glenesk 20 year Duncan Taylor Review

The 1983 Glenesk 20 year Duncan Taylor hails from a distillery that has had a bit of an identity crisis over the years having had 4 other names in it’s lifetime. Highland Esk, Hillside, North Esk and Montrose (which sounds more Canadian than Scottish). Glenesk started life as a mill and then in 1897 it…
