Photo report […]

After the last post about Bowmore Tempest 10 years old Batch VI it is worth, if only for a moment, to move to the place of its creation, which I visited during last years stay on Islay. I was there the second time, probably not the last ;) Without any further ado, I invite you to a photo report from a visit to the Bowmore Distillery.

    My favourite Bowmore series

    It seems that the Bowmore 10 years old Tempest series has adopted well and we have another edition. There are Batch 3 and V already on the blog and today I have in my glass Batch VI. Both 3 and VI I bought during visits to the distillery. Tempest arouses my smile from the very first glance. Natural color, unchillfiltered, cask strength 54.9% ABV, first fill bourbon barrels. What more could you want? This is obviously a rhetorical question. And ... one more thing, of which today we should...

    Back to the past

    Yes, its a grand moment for tasting of Laphroaig 10 years old bottled at the 70s of the last century. Thus, I dressed in a suit, beautifully ironed shirt and put on a tie ... This is a joke …. of course, after all whisky is for drinking, not to pray to it. Well, sometimes you can forget that.

    Next Speysider

    Long in my opinion the Glenlivet is a counterweight to the Glenfiddich, I have already mentioned that on the occasion of the description of the Glenlivet 18 years old, which I enjoyed. It should not be a surprise as both distilleries are very well known. I also had the opportunity to compare Glenlivet Founders Reserve to leaving, at least from some markets, Glenlivet 12 years old. Today, it is a time for a 15 years old version, 40% ABV. [caption id=attachment_6298 align=alignnone...

    Classic from Isle of Jura

    Recently I described a visit to the beautiful Isle of Jura, earlier on the blog appeared The Isle of Jura 1995 Boutique Barrels Bourbon JO Cask Finish, and Jura Origin 10 years old, but basically I should start with Jura 16 years old Diurachs Own, as it is the whisky, Ive started my adventure with this distillery.

    Standard blend

    It is time for Ballantines Finest. This is a flagship product from Pernod Ricard and probably it doesnt need any introduction. We are dealing here with a standard blend, bottled at a minimum level of 40% ABV. They are using approx. 40 different whiskies, including grains and single malts, to compose it.

    Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    Glengoyne distillery was the first one for me to visit. We drove a car from Glasgow to Islay, the distillery is on the way. Glengoyne is delightfully situated at the foot of the mountain, from which flows the stream. Location is very Scottish. What is interesting distillery itself is qualified as the Highlands and actually whisky is distilled in this region, but matures in the Lowlands, which is across the street, which also forms the border between the regions. It is surprising that nothing...

    Madeira Cask

    I do not have to hide that I have a soft spot for Laphroaig. I can not pass by without noticing it. So when recently I received an email from the distillery with an information about the possibility to participate in the lottery to purchase a bottle of Cairdeas 2016 Madeira Cask, without much hesitation I signed up. After a few days it turned out that I acquired the right to buy this release. What times, you need to participate in the lottery to buy Scotch. What to do when demand exceeds...

    Typical Speysider

    We have already a few whiskies from Glenfiddich distillery on the blog (eg. Glenfiddich 19 years old Age of Discovery Red Wine Finish, Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix, Glenfiddich Rich Oak, Glenfiddich Excellence 26 years old, Glenfiddich 21 years old Gran Reserva Rum Cask Finish). [caption id=attachment_6156 align=alignnone width=1602] Glenfiddich 12 years old[/caption] I also had the pleasure to visit the distillery a few times.

    46%, non chill-filtered, natural colour

    For some time I have on the shelf Bruichladdich Rocks. This is no age statement single malt (NAS), a pity ... but in return we get a 46% ABV, non chill-filtered and natural color. I bought this bottle in Malaysia, Langkawi, for a very attractive price approx. 20 Euro. This is duty-free island and probably it is a merit of that. There are already a several bottles of Bruichladdich on the blog (e.g. Laddie Classic Edition 1, Port Charlotte An Turas Mor, Port Charlotte CE 05 Valinch), lets see...
