Independent Tomatin […]

On the blog Tomatin has not yet arrived, I have to change it. So I invite you to tasting impressions the Tomatin 1996/2013, 46% ABV, Connoisseurs Choice, Gordon & MacPhail. As with other releases of this series we have natural color and unchillfiltered. C: white wine, N: first of all light and sweet, vanilla, butter cookies, coconut cookies, white chocolate, caramel, not too intense and quite unilateral, after some time I still have floral notes, maybe an apricot, then banana and cinnamon; T: light pinching on the tongue, orange peel, red orange, banana, butter cookies, light and pleasant; F: medium long fruity. Score: 84. Tomatin 1996/2013, 46% ABV, Connoisseurs Choice, Gordon & MacPhail is an interesting malt, it is necessary to give it a moment, the smell will surely develop, but the whole will remain light and calm as you are accustomed to light tongue pinching.

    Independent Dalmore

    Four years ago on the blog I posted an entry about Dalmore 12 years old (how this time flies), I invite you to that entry as a prelude to todays colleague, which is Dalmore from an independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice series, vintage 1999, bottled in 2013 with 46% ABV. Typically for the release we have natural color and unchillfiltered. On this occasion, I have to mention Brand Ambassador Richard Paterson, who seems to be celebrating 50th anniversary in the whisky...

    Malmsey Madeira Casks Finish

    A few days ago, Glenmorangie Bacalta had its premiere. This is the eighth edition of the series of Private Collection. This time we have a classic maturation in Bourbon barrels and then finish in Malmsey Madeira wine casks. Traditionally, the whisky is bottled at 46% and unchillfiltered. It just happens that I have such a bottle, so there is nothing else to open it and look inside. [caption id=attachment_7098 align=alignnone width=1920] Glenmorangie Bacalta[/caption] N: cooked...

    On St. Patrick’s Day

    You can not say that the blog is full filled with whiskey from Ireland, essentially from there we have some products only on occasions (e.g. Tullamore Dew Phoenix, The Tyrconnell NAS). As now with Jameson for St. Patricks Day which is for a few days. What we are dealing? Jameson is a classic from Ireland, triple distilled and bottled at 40% ABV. N: beginning lightly alcoholic, slightly peppery, rather white pepper, after a while very gentle, timid I would say, distant caramel and vanilla,...

    Trzymam kciuki!

    Bywalcy rodzimych festiwali whisky, których z roku na jest coraz więcej, na pewno mieli okazję zetknąć się z projektem „Wolf Distillery”. Póki co nie mamy do czynienia z destylarnią, ale ta jest w planie i ma mieścić się w Polsce. Aktualnie trunki powstają w tajemniczym kraju na terenie UE, który nie zabrania destylacji alkoholu na własne potrzeby. Niestety musimy pozostać w sferze domysłów, gdyż właściciel marki nie ujawnia konkretów. To co wiemy, to fakt, że...

    Młody Sherry Monster

    Recently described on the blog Glengoyne, was quite nice 17 yo, not officially offered right now.

I really like this issues you can get only in distilleries. Glengoyne Teapot Dram is about to be a reminder of the daily rations for distillery workers, which they were once treated to make the work lighter... Today, it would not pass... We have here a...

    Photo report

    Do you remember the first Polish single malt - Prologue or 100% rye whisky Mr. Rye? These products comes from a Polish producer Kozuba and Sons. It is worth mentioning that Mr. Rye received 91 points in the Jim Murrays Whisky Bible 2017. Interesting ... for quite a few years, Kozuba and Sons have company in Jabłonki near Nidzica (Poland) and I have never managed to visit it, finally had to go across the Atlantic to see a new distillery in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA. By the way this is...

    US Exclusive

    During the holidays in Florida, by the way of buying champagne on New Years Eve 2016, I had, of course, revise a shelf with single malts. In fact, there were only standards and have already had to reach for Bourbon as the corner of my eye noticed Glenfiddich 14 years old Bourbon Barrel Reserve US Exclusive, 43% ABV. According to the label this version is offered exclusively in the US. Matured in bourbon casks for 14 years and then finished in the fresh American oak. The concept here is...

    As it probably is my last post in 2016, lets say for Christmas and New Year, I decided to dedicate it to the tasting impressions of a single malt from closed, already legendary distillery from Japan. Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, I give you Karuizawa Spirit of Asama, 55% ABV (you can meet also bottlings with less power). This is not a single cask, Karuizawa is known right know, which gain record prices at auctions. We have a combination of barrels from European sherry oak. The...
