Kolejny przedstawiciel tajemniczej serii […]

Nie tak dawno temu do moich drzwi zapukał kurier wręczając tajemniczą srebrną walizeczkę. Kompletnie nie wiedziałem o co chodzi, dopiero po włamaniu się do wnętrza okazało się, że kryje się tam The Glenlivet Code i równie tajemniczy czarny kieliszek degustacyjny. [caption id=attachment_7784 align=alignnone width=1920] The Glenlivet Code, 48% ABV[/caption] To już kolejne, po Alpha i Cipher wydanie, przy okazji którego The Glenlivet zachęca do samodzielnego nazwania zapachów i smaków, posługując się ich nomenklaturą, zachęcają do „odkodowania” malta. Można to uczynić także za pomocą aplikacji znajdującej się na stronie internetowej producenta. Ciekawa zabawa dla tych wszystkich, którzy chcą sprawdzić się w degustacji. [caption id=attachment_7786 align=alignnone width=1920] The Glenlivet Code, 48% ABV[/caption] Tradycyjnie przy tych wydaniach, znamy jedynie poziom alkoholu, który wynosi 48% ABV i tyle. Wiek, beczki, no i oczywiście wrażenia zapachowo smakowe pozostają tajemnicą, czekającą na odkrycie. [caption id=attachment_7788 align=alignnone width=1920] The Glenlivet Code, 48% ABV[/caption] Poodkrywajmy zatem. N: jeszcze w buteleczce zapach przypomina mi nawodnione rodzynki, świeży chleb, nieco drożdżowy, słodowy, potem czerwone owoce, jabłka, brzoskwinia, wanilia; po nalaniu do kieliszka najpierw poczułem lekkie pary alkoholu i imbir, tony, które czułem wprost z buteleczki uszły gdzieś na drugi plan, teraz mam więcej toffi i karmelu, ale od razu dostaję też dojrzałe jabłka, kandyzowaną pomarańczę, brzoskwinię i suszoną morelę, po tym robi się bardzo gładko, wręcz kremowo, jeszcze później odkryłem cappuccino, miło; S: smak wydaje się bardziej surowy, mam imbir, grapefruita, skórę pomarańczową i ananasa, do tego dochodzą wyraźne ślady drewna, dalej pojawia się cynamon, kardamon, mam jeszcze jabłko i brzoskwinię, z czasem wzrasta...

    Beczki po sherry i torf

    Ten wpis miałem umieścić już w kwietniu, gdyż butelkę Bowmore 10 years old Dark & Intense, 40% ABV, kupiłem właśnie wtedy, podczas pobytu w Kito w Japonii. Natknąłem się na nią przypadkowo, a w zasadzie przypadkowo natknąłem się na sklep z whisky, który znajdował się obok baru sushi, będącego celem mojej wizyty w tamtej części miasta. W sklepie wybór całkiem szeroki i przyzwoity, a do tego ceny również nie wydawały się wygórowane. Myślę, że było taniej...

    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...

    The gentle dram

    The Glenlivet-Tomintoul Distillery is located in the hearty in whisky region of Speyside in the Ballindalloch. It was founded in 1964, primarily for the purposes of the rapidly growing market of blended whisky. Over time, single malts entered in the offer. Today I have in the glass the Tomintoul 12 years old in limited, as the producer indicates, version of Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish, 40% ABV. Previously, we had here Tomintoul - the gentle dram with a peaty tang, that is a peated NAS from this...

    Peat and red wine.

    During last Whisky Live Warsaw 2017, a friend of mine presented me a solid sample of Longrow Red 13 years old Malbec Cask Matured - great thanks. Longrow is a peated whisky produced by the Springbank Distillery, next to the Springbark (medium peated) and much milder Hazelburn. We are talking about the Campbeltown Region, which is the smallest whisky region in Scotland. In addition to these, there are also Glen Scotia Distillery and Glengyle Distillery producing Kilkerran. My guest for today...

    Swedish Single Malt Whisky

    I recently got two samples with news from Swedish Mackmyra, for which I heartily thank you. Earlier in the blog I described their first version of 10 years old. Lets see what our girlfriends are hiding inside.
