  • pb: This had some very conflicting tastes. Without ice, I found it almost unbearable (maybe my palate isn't ready for 60% ABV)...but, without ice, there
  • pb: I managed to get my hands on this in the US---it's hardly available here. Easy drinking----hints of sweet caramel, coconut and vanilla. Really opens
  • Tabrulavubeg: The post is more than 3 years old. But I got to buy a bottle of Old Bothwell Cask 2039 today to find that this also was a bottling from the same cask!
