Signatory Small Batch Glenlivet 2007 (48.1%)

Signatory has several lines of products, and it seems like we have a new line appearing. Right now, the ‘Small Batch Edition’ appeared in a bottling for the German market. However, it says that it’s edition number one, suggesting a continuation. Unlike many independent bottlers, vatting a few casks together (OK, you can call them…
