We're seeing this more and more frequently in the whisky world: undeclared / undisclosed single malts from some of the most iconic distilleries in Scotland. It's a move designed to protect the name and reputation of well-established brands, because as we all know, independently bottled single malts can be all over the map in terms of flavour (and quality!). It's releases such as this stunning little nugget from the Thompson Bros (Dornoch distillery) that make you question the soundness of that logic, however. Make no mistake about it, this whisky is an absolute gem.

The lass on the bottle? That's the beloved Bessie Williamson of Laphroaig (cough cough) fame. Bessie was the first distillery manager (and later owner) in Scotland. Her name and likeness have been used many times to hint at the distillery behind some of these heavily-peated darlings. And this 13 year old 'Leapfrog' is 100% in line with what the distillery showcases all the time. Only 217 bottles were released from this single ex-bourbon barrel. 52.6% abv, uncolored and not chill-filtered.
