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. [caption id=attachment_7532 align=alignnone width=1920] Mackmyra Skordetid & Mackmyra Moment Korsbar[/caption] Mackmyra Skordetid, 46.1% ABV   N: sweet with clear wine accents, but also plenty of honey, caramel and toffee, after a while it all evaporates and there are mainly traces of spices, then again the previous accents shyly return, but they are much less intense, at the end the touch of lemon and its skin is revealed; S: here it is also sweet, with coconut, vanilla and honey, but also with very clear ginger, to all this notes from time to time I have a lemon, it’s peel and grapefruit; F: even long, dry and with ginger. Score: 75. Mackmyra Skordetid, 46.1% ABV makes a young impression, can be characterized by a large amount of ginger and is dry. Initially, the smell is promising, but pretty soon is gone with a wind. Taste has quite a big route to catch up after the nose. [caption id=attachment_7533 align=alignnone width=1920] Mackmyra Skordetid & Mackmyra Moment Korsbar[/caption] Mackmyra Moment Korsbar, 47% ABV   N: here also it begins sweet but also with some accents of rum, milk chocolate with raisins, then coconut and vanilla comes in, after that quite timidly fruits emerge, cherry, apricot, dried apricot, peach and even nectarine, I also have candied orange, then milk chocolate and some raisins come back, very nice; T: I have similar accents in the taste, it is sweet with rum, milk chocolate and raisins, then a whole bunch of fruits - from orange to grapefruit, finally it is getting quite dry, with the touch of ginger and oak; F: pretty long, sweet with candied fruits and increasingly dry. Score: 80. Mackmyra Moment Korsbar, 47% ABV draws attention to the apricot...

    Today it is time for available only in the distillery Glenfiddich 15 years old, cask strength 58.1% ABV. I bought that bottle and I filled it myself there. It comes from batch 20 its no is 81.

In fact, the whole trip was very successful. [caption id=attachment_7440 align=alignnone width=1920] Glenfiddich 15...

    Utah Whiskey

    With age, the time is running faster or all that is good soon ends, you could endlessly cite this type of wisdom. I just got back from vacation, hence the mood. That is why it may be worth a moment to reminisce. I was in the US, most the time in Utah - beautiful national parks and this kind of stuff. Really very nice, peaceful area, worth exploring and returning. I would not be myself if I didn’t look at the liquor stores from time to time. And there is a surprise ... the lack of whisky ......

    Thirsty malt

    Cairdeas, or friendship, thats how Laphroaig calls his annual editions for Feis Ile. Probably not to be called otherwise, since the purchase of this bottle this year was a real torment. First, I was looking for Cask Strength, but this quickly ended, then Laphroaigs website decided to prove that youre not strong enough to face it. Finally after two days I was able to reach the stage of entering credit card details. And then, no confirmation, email, contact, nothing. After a few days the...

    Whisky Festival 2015 Exclusive

    I have tried single malts matured in many different barrels, after Bourbon of course, sherry, port, madeira, other wines and beer too. I did not drink whisky aged in sparkling wine casks. So its time for a new sensations or maybe it will not make much difference? Interesting ... During a visit to a distillery on the Isle of Jura, Jura Tastival hit my eyes, specially released for the festival in 2015, distilled in 1997 and bottled with 52% ABV. Above that natural color and non-chill filtered....

    NAS from Isle of Skye

    From the Isle of Skye we had here Talisker 57 North, earlier classic 10 years old, also I posted a report from the visit to the distillery. For today, I prepared Talisker Skye, another NAS (no age statement), fortunately bottled at 45.8% ABV. N: still in the bottle, somewhat peat with smoked fish - this is a good prediction; you have to fill a glass - first alcoholic breeze, which clears quickly as breeze should, then a bit sweet - biscuits maybe, cooked apples, furthermore peat accents,...

    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....
