Professor B’s Vintages January 5, 2013 Release Recommendations.

After Christmas and New Year’s celebrations, most people tend to be less inclined to think about buying wine, spirits, or liqueurs.

The Vintage’s buyers know this, and the first release of the year is always full of outstanding values.
This release is no different than those in the past.

Here are my recommendations:

The Arrand Malt 12 Years Old Cask Strength Single Malt
This small Scotch distiller produces 750 000 litres of whisky a year and is known for quality and distinct flavour of its products.
A smooth, flavourful, spicy whisky at 51.6 per cent ABV.
