Mysterious dram – Blind tasting

Mysterious dram – Blind tasting


It's always an interesting experience […]

During the 5th Whisky Festival in Jastrzębia Góra, I tried many malts, I also got a few samples, including one mysterious. Mysterious, without specifying any details, just for fun in blind tasting. There was nothing left for me to do. Nice weather, so I called the dog and went to the sea to taste.

It turned out to be Johnnie Walker Black Label Sherry Edition. Thus a 12 year old blend, containing an additional portion of distillate aged in sherry casks. Thats a surprise. What as what, but I did not put on it to be blend. I was closer to something from Speyside, maybe one of Singleton or Cardhu, just a free thought. I would not bet on the Black Label, which...
