Once you find something you and your wallet can agree on, it can be hard to stray to another, but there is nothing wrong with mixing it up every now and then.By “hidden”, I mean that these Single Malts are in no way scarce spirits that you are going to have to know a guy, a secret phrase or a cryptic handshake to obtain, these are simply amazing go-to spirits that are either overlooked, or incredibly underrated.
