Glenmorangie Allta, 52.1% ABV

Dzikie drożdże […]

Glenmorangie Allta to już dziesiąte wydanie z serii Private Edition. Tym razem motywem przewodnim miały być drożdże, gdyż do fermentacji zacieru do tej whisky posłużyły dziko żyjące drożdże znalezione na polu jęczmienia należącego do destylarni. W sieci jest już sporo informacji na temat tego konkretnego wydania i nie ma sensu abym je tu powielał. Allta butelkowana jest ze słuszną mocą 51.2% ABV, ma naturalny kolor i nie była filtrowana na zimno. Zatem do dzieła. N: zaraz po otwarciu buteleczki: rodzynki, orzechy, słodko z karmelem, kokosem i wanilią, makowiec; po nalaniu do kieliszka: początek alkoholowy, lekko imbirowy, zbożowy, skórka pomarańczowa, dojrzała pomarańcza, grejpfrut; zostawiam drama na chwilę aby pooddychał, jakoś wszystko zamknęło się, czekam dalej; chyba trzeba dodać wody, przez krótką chwilę zrobiło się tak na początku w buteleczce, potem lekko piernikowo z dotykiem drożdżówki; S: intensywnie, czuć moc alkoholu, imbir, spora goryczka, a do tego pewna doza owoców: pomarańcze, brzoskwinie, banany, po dodaniu wody w zasadzie bez większych zmian, nadal lekko szczypie język, ale i pozostawia owoce, z czasem mam też dotyk czegoś słodkiego; F: całkiem długi, wytrawny z imbirem i pozostałościami grejpfruta. Punktacja: 82. Allta to ciekawy eksperyment, generalnie próbując w ciemno nie powiedziałbym, że to Glenmorangie. Moim zdaniem wymaga pewnego czasu, przyzwyczajenia i dodania kilku kropel wody. Wiem, że celem destylarni było uwypuklenie działania drożdży, choć mam wrażenie, że malt mógł sobie jeszcze podojrzewać w beczce, ale to tylko moja opinia. Z drugiej strony, aby odkryć rzeczywisty wpływ droży należałoby bezpośrednio porównać tę whisky stworzoną ze standardowo stosowanych droży, leżakującą ten sam czas w tych samych beczkach etc. Takich możliwości nie mam. Dziękuję za sampla. Pozdrowienia dla wszystkich! [caption id=attachment_7986...

    In anticipation of their own whisky

    Raasay is an island located between the Isle of Skye and the mainland of Scotland. It also happens that recently (since 2017) there is also a distillery of the same name. The work onsite is still too short to try their single malt whisky, the premiere of which is scheduled for 2020. However, the company didn’t want us to be too sad and get us used to a new player in the market, thats why they offer a single malt distilled in another distillery under the name Raasay While We Wait. This...

    Blended Malt od Douglas Laing

    Its time to enter the New Year. For this occasion, I bought something that caught my attention above all with the look. Yes, I know it does not have the slightest impact on the tasting values, but you do not always have to take everything so seriously. This seriousness is more than enough for every day. Therefore, it started from the package - you can assess it by pictures below. Interesting, with a movable ring in the middle, allows you to play with characters. What else? We have here...

    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...

    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...

    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,...

    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...
