Hello 2022! My first post of the year, a brand I was introduced to just about a month ago via the Flaviar Advent Calendar. I was so impressed that my husband bought me the sampler for Christmas.

I’m impressed with these whiskies and what they’ve achieved. What’s even better is how easy they are to drink. If I had to pick a favorite it would have to be the Peated, but I’m biased. Anything reminiscent of a warm fire and I’m sold.
These whiskies are easy to drink, light, approachable and show loads of promise. I can’t wait to see what else they have in store for us.
