Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky […]

So far, here appeared only one Bourbon and it was a classic Jim Beam. Time for another representative from Kentucky, Makers Mark. Recently, in the world of Bourbon became loud, as the manufacturer intended to reduce the ABV. However, because of the criticism, they decided to leave 45% ABV. Bravo, a company that listens to its customers. Probably the main reason for trying to reduce the ABV was, present also in the Scotch or Japanese whisky, growth in demand and declining stocks. The price wouldnt be reduced, which would translate into real profits. Makers Mark remained unchanged, we should be happy. [caption id=attachment_4339 align=alignnone width=801] Makers Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky[/caption] A characteristic sign of Makers Mark is the red wax on top of the bottle. Unlike most manufacturers of Bourbon, in Loretto they use the spelling of whisky not whiskey. Basically, according to American laws the first version is correct, the second follows from the Irish tradition. [caption id=attachment_4340 align=alignnone width=801] Makers Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky[/caption] C: liquid gold; N: typical bourbony, sweetie, soaked raisins, gingerbread, caramel and toffee, honey, milk chocolate, coconut, caramelised oranges and of course lots of vanilla; T: sweet, vanilla, after a while, there is a delicate sparkling on the tongue, white pepper, further candied oranges, apricots, maple syrup, honey, coconut, then grapefruit with traces of bitterness; F: average long, honey with traces of orange. Score: 84. The smell beautifully coincides with the taste, generally nice sweet tones prevail. Makers Mark is a solid Bourbon and very good representative of the genre.

Currently, the company is...

    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.

Previously they released some blends using stocks of Hanyu. We already have on the blog Chichibu The First and Chichibu Port Pipe. I have tasted their other...

    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...
