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...

    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...

    Standard blend

    It is time for Ballantines Finest. This is a flagship product from Pernod Ricard and probably it doesnt need any introduction. We are dealing here with a standard blend, bottled at a minimum level of 40% ABV. They are using approx. 40 different whiskies, including grains and single malts, to compose it. [caption id=attachment_6256 align=alignnone width=1602] Ballantines Finest[/caption] As stated by one of the characters in Vabank 2 movie, thinking that he was in Switzerland:...

    “whisky no 1 in the world” – producer

    After Chivas 12 years old I decided to go after blow and describe the next blend. Blend by large B. Johnnie Walker Red Label needs no introduction. According to the manufacturer it is whiskey No. 1 in the world. This may be true in terms of the number of sold bottles. Johnnie Walker Red Label is a blended whisky, which is a mixture of grain whiskies and single malts, without specifying age (NAS). In the case of basic blends grain content is relatively large, easily and cheaply it can be...

    NAS from Highlands

    In the Scottish Highlans, near Loch Lomond lies, founded in 1814, distillery of the same name. It belongs to the Loch Lomond Group, owner also of the Glen Scotia in Campbeltown. In a sense, the distillery is unique, as it in the same place produces a single malt whisky, grain whisky and blends. Today I have tasted Loch Lomond Single Malt NAS (no age statement), 40% ABV.
