WhiskyNotes birthday

 

 

Exactly one year ago, the first whisky review was posted on this website, the Balvenie 30 Years Old. Since then, almost 200 other drams were published and more than 40 news item were covered. Let’s celebrate with a week of 90+ drams!

    @Philippe Thanks a lot!
    @Serge That sounds like a great proposal. I’m looking forward to that BenRiach already, I really liked the official Sauternes finish.
