It's pure malt which means it's a blend of single malts with no grain whisky in, it might not be as bad as you think especially being an old bottling.
Whiskybroker Royal Brackla from 2020 for me tonight and enjoying it more now that the bottle has been open for about a month.
I'm the same with rum, killing off a bottle of Doorly's 14 at the min by feeding a xmas cake with it
A bottle I really like…a few more ordered on the current Fine Drams order £30 ( VAT to be added but still)Started with a Hazelburn 10, just moved on to an Arran Port Cask and have a SMWS 13yo Caol Ila first fill bourbon cask lined up next. Will probably leave it that tonight - had my COVID booster today and not 100%.
