Glenmorangie Spios 46% ABV

Glenmorangie Spios 46% ABV

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 series - Milsean and Bacalta. I wonder how it will be this time. [caption id=attachment_7688 align=alignnone width=1920] Glenmorangie Spios 46% ABV[/caption] N: in the bottle quite sweet, honey-vanilla, ice cream, caramel, in the glass at the very beginning similar, in the cold wind, when I tried it for the first time I discovered a large wave of citrus with orange and lemon at the fore, then already at peace at home also peach, litchi, dry grass and straw, after some time I sensed marzipan, cinnamon and meringue, in the distance slight dose of spirit with white pepper, sometimes also perfumes; T: here it is more wild with tongue tingling, some bitterness, ginger, white pepper, warming up, dry, after getting used to it I have grapefruit and orange peel, water somewhat softens it, but you can also quickly overdo and dilute this malt; F: medium long with bitterness some traces of grapefruit and orange. Score: 80. Glenmorangie Spios or spice in free translation is probably a good name for it, similar to the other expressions in the series, all the names are pretty well reflected to the character of whisky. The smell is very interesting, the taste in my opinion is too much Spios, rather not in my favorite style, a little wild and spicy, although you will surely find amateurs for such a malt.

    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,...

    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...

    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.

    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 ......

    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,...

    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...

    Independent Dalmore

    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...

    On St. Patrick’s Day

    You can not say that the blog is full filled with whiskey from Ireland, essentially from there we have some products only on occasions (e.g. Tullamore Dew Phoenix, The Tyrconnell NAS). 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. N: beginning lightly alcoholic, slightly peppery, rather white pepper, after a while very gentle, timid I would say, distant caramel and vanilla,...
