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...

    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,...

    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...
