Talisker 10 years old

Talisker 10 years old

0

The only from Isla of Skye […]

Once, Talisker 10 years old was the primary whisky from this distillery. Now there are Storms, Mochs etc, but fortunately 10 years old has not disappeared from the market and is still available. We have a bottling at 45.8% ABV, why not 46%, I dont know, maybe to stand out? The difference of 0.2% is so small that it rather doesnt influence on tasting virtues. I would not cry if the color was natural and there have been no chill filtering, but I cannt have everything ;). [caption id=attachment_4646 align=alignnone width=801] Talisker 10 years old[/caption] Ive drunk this whisky many times, generally there is no problem with its purchase. However, earlier I didnt focus enough to write down my impressions. The opportunity has come, so lets go ahead. [caption id=attachment_4647 align=alignnone width=801] Talisker 10 years old[/caption] N: peat elements are evident, pleasantly smoked, charred wood, smoked mackerel, smoke, bonfire, then citrus with lemon emerge, red grapefruit and ripe orange, ginger traces are here and there, quite fresh maybe even with mint, sea air, brine, grilled seafood and later I found wet chalk and bandages; T: sparkles on the tongue and warms up, it gives peaty flavor with elements of wood, I still have grapefruit and ginger with some bitterness, orange peel and ripe orange, a touch of salt, grilled oysters; F: long, dry, persistent traces of peat and grapefruit with bitterness, just as at the end gets sweet. Score: 86. Complex and well-balanced single malt. Everything is just right. Nice introduction to Laphroaigs and Ardbegs, it is milder to them. I added a few drops of water. Whisky has become calmer, heavier peaty tones went to the background. I prefer it without water.

    Laphroaig’s birtday

    This year, Laphroaig celebrates its 200 birthday. On this occasion, the distillery introduced a 15-year old version of its nectar, bottled at 43% ABV. Reportedly, 15 yo intended to replace the 18 yo, do not know if this rumor is true, but it would be consistent with the current prevailing trend, although on the other hand, it is not so long ago as it was 18 to replace the 15, hmm ... We shall see. [caption id=attachment_4598 align=alignnone width=801] Laphroaig 15 years old 200...

    My year

    In fact, I wanted to write that here we have the first Port Ellen on the blog, but not, after all, it has already appeared on the occasion of Whisky Live Paris 2013 and Whisky Legend tasting. I will not go into unnecessary arguments that it is legendary distillery from Islay, closed in 1983. One only needs to be pointed out that this vintage 1979, bottled at 46% ABV in 2013, by an independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail. Lot nr RO/12/08. [caption id=attachment_4585 align=alignnone...

    The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve NAS i 12 years old

    In a direct challenge

    Previously, I took a very good The Glenlivet 18 years old. Today I decided to compare the classic 12 year old with the new NAS - Founders Reserve, which reportedly intended to replace 12 years old version, at least in some markets. In Poland so far, both versions are available, well see how long. As you can see the overwhelming trend of the NAS (no age statement) also affected this distillery. It seems that it is inevitable if we analyze the data of Malt Scotch Whisky Association about the...

    43% ABV

    The Glenlivet is one of the biggest brands in the world of single malts. I always used to associate it as a counterweight to the Glenfiddich. I think there is nothing surprising, since Glenlivet has the highest sale among single malts in the United States. This is a Speyside distillery, it lies in the village of Drumin. It was founded by George Smith in 1824 and was the first in the region to receive a license to produce whisky. Currently distillery belongs to Pernod Ricard (including e.g....

    8 years old

    I have a bottle of Glenfarclas The Private Reserve 2003 from February and Ive tasted it several times already to make sure what do I feel. Single malt was distilled in 2003 and bottled in November 2011, with 46% ABV, unchillfiltered. The color may be a natural, but I dont have such an information. To create this batch they used casks No: 9, 10, 11, 1875 and 1876. It doesnt say a lot, though the data is given on the bottle. I dont know what kind of casks we are dealing with, but after...
