Kilchoman Single Cask Release, The Whisky Shop Edition – Review

I hate to gloat, especially since friends and family back in the Midwest received an early snow this past weekend, complete with power KO'ing fury and wet, slushy stuff that I'm sure made driving fun, but we've had an exceptional past several days here in San Francisco.
