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 whisky is to present the character of its future, own products. We have a natural colour, non chill filtered and bottling at 46% ABV. In the glass I have the third edition of this whisky, which is to be lightly peated and finished in Tuscan red wine casks. [caption id=attachment_7939 align=alignnone width=1920] Raasay While We Wait[/caption] C: honey; N: immediately after pouring into the glass it is a little irritating, I have to give it a moment to breathe; some spices maybe..., cloves, ginger, not particularly volatile, rather calm, highland character, summer meadow, dry hay, chamomile, wildflowers, in the distance dry wood, maybe even slightly burnt and charred, with time I can feel the sweet elements, some caramel, vanilla, peach, banana, then more fruits, nectarine, dried apricot, pear in the compote, lemon peel, pleasant summer character; T: slightly warming, dry, with elements of wood, that are my first impressions, after a while it gets sweeter with caramel and vanilla, the touch of caramelized orange, grapefruit, traces of grilled seafood, all the time the ginger is quite clear, as well as light bitterness and general the impression of a delicate wood, with time I got the touch of an espresso; F: quite long with ginger, dry. Score: 80. Raasay While We Wait is a kind of surprise. I was expecting something very young and uncouth. This single malt should take a breath in a glass, after which it turns out to be calm and unobtrusive. The taste to...

    Another representative of the mysterious series

    Not so long ago a courier knocked at my door handing a mysterious silver suitcase. I completely did not know what was going on, it was only after breaking into the interior that the Glenlivet Code and the equally mysterious black tasting glass were hidden. [caption id=attachment_7784 align=alignnone width=1920] The Glenlivet Code, 48% ABV[/caption] This is another, after Alpha and Cipher edition, on the occasion of which The Glenlivet encourages to independently name the smells and...

    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. [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...

    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...
