The format is: Distillery — Age — Notes

Notes:

  • Any Store Pick (SP) is likely to be single cask and/or cask strength.
  • Most of the SP bottles will have bottler’s name if appropriate, I’ll skip the minutiae of cask numbers.
  • I’ll underline bottles that are of interest to me
  • Where available: XBC — Bourbon Cask. SHC — Sherry Cask.
