Glenturret 30 yo (The Malt Man)

Been a while since I reviewed a single cask bottling from the Maltman which is a small IB from Glasgow. I’ve previously tasted a few of their single casks, and this has been sitting patiently for review for a few months. Now it’s time. Glenturret is not a distillery I get to taste much, and this is indeed the first …

The MaltMan Bowmore  1989 21 yo

Thrilled to feature a brand new Indie bottler today , The Maltman. This label is bottled by the Meadowside blending Co. located in Glasgow. I have to admit this is the first time I’ve tasted their single casks, and find them rather nice. One downside is that all of them are watered down to about 46% rather than CS, which …
