Double Matured […]

When I roamed the Munich airport last time, in my arms, without the slightest hesitation, Lagavulin Distillers Edition fell in. Single malt distilled in 1998 and bottled in 2014, batch No. lgv. 4/503, 43% ABV. The tradition of Distillers Edition is Double Maturation. The second one takes place in a wine barrels, in the case of lgv. 4/503 this is Pedro Ximenez. Will my expectations be satisfied? Lets see.

    The oldest blend I have drunk

    Recently, a friend invited me to a tasting of Chivas 35 years old. I have to admit that this is the oldest blend with which I have dealt with and I was very curious what it has to offer. It took us some time to synchronize terms, but in the end we were able to meet. We sat in three of us and began debating what to give as a primer. Initially we thought about Strathisla, as an important component of Chivas, but we doubt whether single malt does not turn out too dominant for further tasting....

    Young Japanese distillery

    Its time to come back to Japan for the moment. After a relation from the visit to the Yamazaki, the oldest Japanese distillery, today perhaps the youngest - Chichibu.

    W Warszawskiej Pijalni Whisky

    Some time ago, having a free evening in the capital city, I went to the Warszawska Pijalnia Whisky to try a single cask from Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS).

It was my first visit to Warszawska Pijalnia Whisky. The place is open to 2200, which is probably unusual for whisky pump room. Inside is not particularly cozy. But the service...

    “whisky no 1 in the world” – producer

    After Chivas 12 years old I decided to go after blow and describe the next blend. Blend by large B. Johnnie Walker Red Label needs no introduction. According to the manufacturer it is whiskey No. 1 in the world. This may be true in terms of the number of sold bottles. Johnnie Walker Red Label is a blended whisky, which is a mixture of grain whiskies and single malts, without specifying age (NAS). In the case of basic blends grain content is relatively large, easily and cheaply it can be...

    12 year old blend

    Several people have asked me to present some tasting impressions of blends. Usually I do not give them too much time, which is reflected in blog posts, but there are no obstacles to write about them from time to time. Generally blends are a bit different products than single malts. These first are mainly used for drinking in the company, at parties, on the rocks, with cola or in cocktails. In the case of single malts primarily I sink in their fragrances and flavors in quiet atmosphere....
