Golani Single Malt Unicorn Cask 27 (57.7%)

Every once in a while distilleries get really special casks. They get filled, monitored regularly, and at one point they’re deemed ready to be bottled. Now the question is, what do they do with them?

Deanston 21, 1997 Palo Cortado Finish (51.8%)

You’ll recall that last year I tasted the 2018 Limited Edition Bunnahabhain Palo Cortado Finish. That too was a 1997 vintage, presented at 20 years old. Here we have the whisky maturing for another year in the Palo Cortado, so we’re at almost three years in the Palo Cortado casks. I have to say that…
