TWE ‘Time’ series take I : ‘Family owned distillery’ 15 yo

The Time series, is a new set of bottlings from the well known TWE (The whisky Exchange) shop, which aims to catch different casks at different states in the maturation process. There are 4 of these, and the first of which is a 15 year old from an undisclosed ‘family owned’ speyside distillery. Not very hard to guess the distillery name, and I will leave it to you my smart blog readers 😉 All i can say is this distillery is well known for its sherry matured whisky. say no more LOL.
