Monkey Shoulder Scotch Whisky

Type: Malt blend 

Origin: Scotland

Hellyer’s Road 10 year old Slightly Peated

Type: Single malt 

Origin: Tasmania, Australia 

ABV: 46.2%

In this post, I taste two Limeburners whiskies which sound like secret agents for a British spy agency: M174 and M84.  Continue reading
