Wild Turkey Rare Breed 112.8 Proof 56.4% ABV

Barrel Proof […]

Wild Turkey probably does not need to be presented to anyone, on our pages we have hosted the classic Wild Turkey 81 and Russell’s Reserve Small Batch 10 years old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Today tasting impressions of Rare Breed, which is characterized by bottling with the power of the barrel - Barrel Proof - 112.8 Proof, 56.8% ABV. So we have one of the most natural versions, as I like. [caption id=attachment_7280 align=alignnone width=1920] Wild Turkey Rare Breed 112.8 Proof 56.4% ABV[/caption] [caption id=attachment_7281 align=alignnone width=1920] Wild Turkey Rare Breed 112.8 Proof 56.4% ABV[/caption] C: dark amber; N: still in the bottle it is a full, slightly burned sweetness, no trace of alcohol irritation, in the glass also very sweet with a little traces of smoke, only after a few breaths there are typical Bourbon elements that decided to show up, I have a vanilla, a lot of coconut, honey, caramel, hard candy, classic Haribo, Werthers Original etc., do we have here any fruits?.... yes, but mostly candied, such as oranges, pineapples then boiled corn with butter, from time to time still a little smoke, a distant campfire; after a few drops of water it has become more typical, that is, the earlier tones have become even more pronounced; T: thick and intense, fat with a healthy sparks on the tongue, of course sweet with vanilla, caramel and candy, also with candied orange, pineapple, grapefruit and ginger, with time, the level of bitterness increases, lets try to add water - the water smoothes the barrels power and highlights the individual flavors; F: medium long with grapefruit and ginger. Score: 86. Wild Turkey Rare Breed Barrel Proof 112.8 Proof 56.4% ABV is a solid Bourbon. Taste beautifully coincides with the smell. High power gives you the ability to add water and study changes.

    Independent Caol Ila

    Yesterday I was at Whisky Live Sopot 2017. This is the first edition of this event in Sopot. It was smaller (in terms of the number of exhibitors and visitors) than eg Whisky Live Warsaw 2016 or 2015, but for sure more intimate, which really suited me. I dont like crowds. You could talk freely to each other and easily get anywhere. Waiting and counting on next editions. One of the more interesting stands was Adelphi. There Caol Ila 13 years old felt into my hands. Distilled in 2003, bottled...

    Campbeltown Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    Springbank, Springbank, I have not been seen you here recently, lately, I do not remember when, here was Springbank 175 12 years old, on that occasion I also wrote a few words about the distillery itself. Springbank 11 years old Local Barley is an interesting experiment, the manufacturer wanted to limit to the local ingredients and traditional production methods. The Bere barley grew on the Kintyre Peninsula, a few kilometers from Campbeltow on the Aros Farm, then malted in the distillery....

    Swedish Single Malt Whisky

    At our neighbor, on the other side of the lake (Baltic Sea), there was a great feast. Mackmyra has just released its first single malt single with a symbolic age of 10 years. The distillate was matured in Bourbon barrels, in American white oak barrels and in Sherry Oloroso casks. Bottling with 46.1% ABV. Lets see how it tastes. N: directly after opening but still in the bottle, the nose is pleasant, quite winey, then large doses of sweetness with vanilla and honey, as soon as I poured it...

    According to pre-war recipe

    We all know how in recent years whisky is gaining popularity. It is produced, in various types, by more and more companies and countries. Recently there were some talks about another Polish (yes, I have heard that voices) whisky - J.A. Baczewski Whisky. However, it is not a Polish product but Austrian one. Probably for an uninitiated consumer (or simply not reading labels) the name may be associated with Poland. Anyway, thats right in some way, but its a history. Im not going to get into...

    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

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.
