Orkney Highland Park Scapa

Visit to the Orkney, Scapa & Highland Park

Far north […]

Some time ago I had the opportunity to go out far to the north, to the Orkney Islands. Home of Highland Park and Scapa. Other posts on this trip include A visit to the Glenfarclas Distillery or Tasting on Orkney. I invite you to the photo report of the visit to the Orkney. Orkney Islands are located north of the main island, so to get there we have to decide on a plane or ferry. We chose the ferry.

    Multiple layers of sweetness

    Glenmorangie Milsean is the latest child of the distillery, which recently had its premiere in Poland. The presentation was conducted by Global Brand Ambassador of Glenmorangie Karen Fullerton. Karen is a very nice person, with a passion telling about whisky. During the event we tried currently available range of Glenmoragie (eg: Glenmorangie 10 years old Original, Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban, Glenmorangie Lasanta, Glenmorangie Nectar DOr and Glenmorangie Signet) in combination with snacks....

    Glenlivet w naturalnej prezentacji

    Kilka dni temu miałem przyjemność uczestniczyć w premierze przygotowanego na polski rynek single malta - Glenlivet Carn Dulack. Patrząc tylko po tym dopisku Carn Dulack… można pomyśleć, hmm…, kolejny NAS. Jednak hola, hola, nic z tych rzeczy. Trzeba czytać całe zdanie, a brzmi ono The Glenlivet Carn Dulack Single Cask Edition. W efekcie dostajemy single cask z natural colour i unchillfiltered. A to wszystko zabutelkowane w lutym 2016 roku, w wersji cask strength 60.2% ABV, po 14...

    First edition

    Wolfburn is one of the youngest distillery in Scotland. It is located in Thurso, Caithness, approx. 350 meters from functioning in the years 1821-1850 distillery of the same name. Wolfburn currently holds the title of the northernmost distillery on the Scottish mainland, ahead of Old Pulteney. Distillery draws water from the stream of Wolf Burn, hence the name. As the distillery was „reborn” in 2012, the time has come for their first single malt, which just came into my hands. Presentation...

    Dojrzały blend

    Today I came across by a desire for blended whisky, not on standard, widely available release, but for something less common. I started rummaging in the closet, I knew that something must be there. I waded through the malts and finally found Grants 18 years old. I have tasted 12 year old version, but 18 not yet. I do not need to remind anyone that the brand is part of the William Grant & Sons. The family company, or basically a family corporation I should say, their hands focus many...

    Is Macallan still a Rolls Royce?

    The seat of Macallan is located in Easter Elchies House near Craigellachie in the Speyside. It is assumed that the distillery was founded in 1824, when production was legalized. Distillery is part of the Edrington Group, as well as Highland Park. The Macallan was commonly said to be a Rolls Royce of single malts. Distillery gained fame thanks to the high quality whisky aged in sherry casks. I had the opportunity to try these spirits eg. at The Whisky Fair Limburg. Indeed recommendable,...

    Peated NAS from Speyside

    Single malts without specifying the age are produced probably by all of distilleries. Unless Im wrong? Are there any distilleries that do not yet have NAS? Hmm ... I do not think so. Lagavulin maybe… Sometime, somewhere I read that peated whiskies receive, at least statistically, higher scores than those where peat wasnt use in the production. At the same time, it seems that whiskies with specified age, usually, but there are of course some exceptions (eg. Laphroaig Quarter Cask), obtain...

    Photo report.

    Once you get to the Isle of Islay, you should find time and visit the Isle of Jura, with the only distillery on the island at the helm. Paps of Jura are a landmark of Isle of Jura - they are perfectly visible from many places on Islay. [caption id=attachment_5733 align=alignnone width=801] Paps of Jura[/caption] The easiest way to reach the Jura from Islay is to use a small ferry, which takes off from Port Askaig and flows through the strait, directly to the Jura - Feolin Ferry....

    Isle of Jura representative

    During last Easter holidays Jura Origin 10 years old felt into my hands. There arent a lot of editions of this single malt from a beautiful Isle of Jura. Previously I described The Isle of Jura 1995 Boutique Barrels Bourbon JO Cask finish – naturally presented - the color, power, and no chillfiltration. Today, something more commonly available - Jura Origin 10 years old, bottled at 40% ABV. [caption id=attachment_5716 align=alignnone width=801] Jura Origin 10 years old[/caption]...

    Blind tasting in Warsaw

    Two weeks ago, oh how time flies ... I had the pleasure to participate in the Whisky Legend 2016 tasting organized by Daniel and Grzegorz from Whiskymywife. Leitmotif was Port Ellen versus the rest - only closed distilleries. Convention the same as at Whisky Legend 2015 - blind tasting. Information about what, in what order we drank was revealed at the end. Below I present my basic tasting impressions, but I didnt write everything during the event, in effect, records are not able to cast...
