John Barr Reserve Blend

We stumbled across the John Barr Reserve Blend during a whisky tasting and let me tell you, had it been a blind tasting, I would have guessed it was Johnnie Walker. It wasn’t, but the similarities were impeccable and that is because this brand was truly meant to taste like Johnnie Walker. John Barr blended…

Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve
