4. What I say

An independently bottled Aberlour from That Boutique-Y whisky Firm. I keep in mind shopping for Batch 1 a very long time in the past because it was arduous to come back by Aberlour bottled independently on the time. That is Batch 7 and like related latest TBWC batches carries the 9 yr age assertion and is probably going a vatting of a parcel of casks because it produced over 3,000 500ml bottles, from the color I’m guessing refill Bourbon matured?
