Second edition […]

Last week a bottle of the latest release of J.A. Baczewski Whisky came into my hands. This seems to be the second edition of this whisky recently. You will find my impressions from the first edition tasting at this link. [caption id=attachment_7865 align=alignnone width=1920] J.A. Baczewski Whisky[/caption] [caption id=attachment_7867 align=alignnone width=1920] J.A. Baczewski Whisky[/caption] What changed at first glance is primarily the shape of the bottle - elegant, referring to history, similar to Bruichladdich, and of course the color. Now it is beautiful, deep, amber. I assume that it has nothing to do with nature and is simply well influenced by E150. Unless Im wrong and we have whisky matured in e.g. sherry casks. Besides that, visually unchanged, blend, bottled with 43% ABV. [caption id=attachment_7869 align=alignnone width=1920] J.A. Baczewski Whisky[/caption] Lets check it out. C: obviously unnatural, which beats eyes especially in comparison with the first series; N: the nose has to sink into the glass to discover it alcoholically, slightly irritating with ginger, it can still be cereal like with dry hay, in the last phase I got a bit of caramel, maybe the touch of honey; T: warming with a solid amount of ginger, feel of alcohol, clearly young, without depth and variety, with a touch of fresh wood; F: short dry with ginger. Score: 63. Well, I do not see here the aging of whisky in sherry casks, so the first thought about color worked well. We have a young whisky here, which is not for tasting, but for mixing. It seems to me that this time the taste is milder and has fewer sharp corners, so the improvement is. On the other hand, caramel dyeing seems to me exaggerated, but maybe this is what the market expects. We are dealing here withe lever of basic blends like: Johnnie Walker Red Label or Ballantines Finest. [caption id=attachment_7871 align=alignnone width=1920] J.A. Baczewski...

    Fully matured Ardbeg

    Today, wandering the streets of Sopot, in principle, quite unexpectedly, I hit tasting of a new Ardbeg Twenty Something 23 years old. Its good sometimes to go out and explore the city ;) Were dealing here with a bottling from 2017, guaranteed 23 years of maturation, as certified by the producer and non chill-filtered. Power is placed at a reasonable 46.3% ABV. This is the second edition of the Twenty Something, prepared to honor the people who protected the distillery from complete closure...

    It’s always an interesting experience

    During the 5th Whisky Festival in Jastrzębia Góra, I tried many malts, I also got a few samples, including one mysterious. Mysterious, without specifying any details, just for fun in blind tasting. There was nothing left for me to do. Nice weather, so I called the dog and went to the sea to taste. In order not to get carried away by the beautiful nature, I carried out the second part of the tasting after returning home. [caption id=attachment_7809 align=alignnone width=1920] Blind...

    Another representative of the mysterious series

    Not so long ago a courier knocked at my door handing a mysterious silver suitcase. I completely did not know what was going on, it was only after breaking into the interior that the Glenlivet Code and the equally mysterious black tasting glass were hidden. [caption id=attachment_7784 align=alignnone width=1920] The Glenlivet Code, 48% ABV[/caption] This is another, after Alpha and Cipher edition, on the occasion of which The Glenlivet encourages to independently name the smells and...

    Sherry casks and peat

    I was going to to place this post in April, because the bottle of Bowmore 10 years old Dark & Intense, 40% ABV, I bought back then while a visit to Kyto, Japan. I came across it accidentally, in fact I accidentally came across a whisky store that was next to the sushi bar, which was the purpose of my visit to that part of the city. In the store, the choice was quite wide and decent, the prices did not seem excessive either. I think it was cheaper than in my country. After deeper...

    Young Sherrymonster

    Recently, I had the opportunity to take a walk through the airport shops, mainly in the whisky departments. In fact, nothing particularly interested me. Yes, I met terribly expensive bottles Dalmore, Macallan or 50-year-old Glenfiddich, except that I treat them rather as a permanent exhibition. From products for people, my eyes attracted Aberlour ABunadh, batch 58, 61.1% ABV and I decided to take it on a further journey. Yes, its a NAS, except that in a natural presentation - colour, no...

    Private Edition 9

    Glenmorangie has just presented the ninth release of Private Edition. It just happens that I have a beautifully presented small bottle of this drink together with a tasting glass, all properly packed in a nice box. I must admit that Glenmorangie is bringing presenting samples on a new level. This time we also have NAS, traditional 46% ABV, unchillfiltered and fully matured in the barrels after Rye Whiskey, which is now regaining recognition among consumers. I like the last editions of the...

    Ballantine’s Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    In the area around the last Christmas, I got The Glenburgie 15 years old and The Miltonduff 15 years old. These are relatively new products on the market, which more often appeared in a mixed form in blends. In what blends you could ask? Its not difficult to guess because both bottles are signed with the Ballantines logo - Series 001 and 002 Single Malt Scotch Whisky. I think that this is a very interesting idea, because not many uninitiated people have heard about Glenburgie or Miltonduff,...

    Happy New Year

    For the first post this year I chose blended whisky, but it less recognizable. Everyone knows well the biggest on the market like Johnny Walker, Grants, and Ballantines, or even maybe Hibiki but the world does not end there. It just happens that in the glass I have The Antiquary 12 years old, 40% ABV. The origins of the brand date back to 1888, when John & William Hardie decided to put together their blend in Edinburgh. Today The Antiquary belongs to Tomatin Distillery Co., therefore...

    Merry Christmas

    Previous Ardmore on the blog was official Traditional Cask NAS, 46% ABV, that I liked, by its way I also wrote a few words about this distillery. Before that I had here Ardmore 1992/2013 bottled for The Auld Alliance Singapore, just 218 bottles, at 51,3% ABV. Today I present you Ardmore from independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail. It was distilled in 1991 and bottled 2007, we have 16 years of maturation. The power is relatively low - 43% ABV. [caption id=attachment_7620...
