TransparentSmoke Review: This is a relatively newcomer to the whisky scene. It was introduces in 2007 to replace the Bowmore 17 year. It has jumped to the top of many peoples go to for a fine drink. I have seen it as low as a $104.95 all in on sale so if you can get it, it’s worth the drink.
I shared these two bottles with my whisky club. Let’s just say it went over smashingly.
Our Score: 92/100
