Ardmore Traditional Cask

0

Highland Single Malt Whisky […]

Ardmore distillery is located in the Highlands, in Kennethmont in Aberdeanshire. It was founded by Adam Teacher in 1898. Most of the production is used to compose a blend - Teachers. Darker, in the sense of peat, accents in Teachers come just from Ardmore. On the market basically there is only one edition of this single malt. Although recently Ardmore Legacy also appeared, but it hasnt fallen in my hands yet. With any luck you can meet other Ardmore expressions at the independent bottlers or find some special editions. [caption id=attachment_4784 align=alignnone width=801] Ardmore Traditional Cask [/caption] Ardmore Traditional Cask Highland Single Malt, was bottled non-chillfilteted and with 46% ABV. I dont know if it was E150 treated. Maturation proceeded in two stages, first in standard barrels, probably ex-bourbon and then in quarter casks, such as in Laphroaig Quarter Cask. It is possible that even in the same, as both distilleries connects owner Beam Global, today Suntory Beam.

    Speyside distillery

    After the last relation from a visit to the Talisker Distillery, today lets move from the Isle of Skye to the Speyside, to Ballindalloch - home of the Glenfarclas Distillery. It was founded in 1836, and since 1865 remains in the hands of the Grant family. A typical independent distillery for generations owned by the same family. A characteristic feature of single malt derived from the company is aging whisky primarily in sherry casks. The beautiful example of Glenfarclas is vintage 1953, 58...

    100% of rye

    Previously we talked about Kozuba & Sons - Prologue Single Malt Whisky - the first Polish single malt, today another recent product from this distillery - Mr. Rye Straight Rye Whisky. Straight Rye Whisky allows us to assume that we have a mash bill mash of at least 51% rye. The distillery has gone a step further and gave us 100% rye malt. Liquor was matured a minimum of three years in new barrels made of American white oak. As an aside, applause for the design of the bottle. I like it....

    The first Polish single malt whisky

    The times when whisky was associated exclusively with Scotland or Ireland are slowly going to an end. Now, whisky is produced in many countries. Starting with Japan, where it comes from hailed by Jim Murrays the best single malt of 2015 - Yamazaki Sherry Cask 2013, by France, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Finland and many, many others. As Mikolaj Rej said Poles are not geese and their own language have (to oppose Latin in written language), and now we have received the first Polish Single Malt...

    The only distillery on the Islay of Skye

    As probably I have already mentioned in a few places (eg. Tasting in the Orkney) a year ago I also traveled to Scotland. I visited several distilleries, but so far it eluded me to write about them. Ill have to slowly make up for these shortcomings. Due to the fact that recently I tasted Talisker 10 years old, today I give some photos from the visit in this distillery. It should be remembered that Talisker is the only distillery located on the beautiful Isle of Skye - island of the...

    The only from Isle 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...

    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...
