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, smoked fish, fishing nets, brine, sea air, not particularly comprehensive and versatile but pleasant; S: in taste the elements of young alcohol are more noticeable, there is quite a lot sparking on the tongue and warming up, you have to get through it, a little vanilla, peat emerge in the background, more and more wood, ginger, bitterness, gets dryer with the time; F: even long, with a large dose of wood, dry. Score: 77. Talisker Skye has been added to the collection. The pleasant aroma characterizes it, though not particularly rich. The taste is staying behind. Such a charm of the NAS, you cannot have everything, although in general it is decent.

    200 anniversary

    Recently, we have many round anniversaries on Islay, there was Laphroaig, Ardbeg and now 200 anniversary of Lagavulin. The distillery does not offer many official editions. We can choose from delicious 16 years old, more rare 12 years old and annual special editions. All gain consumer recognition. On the occasion of the 200th birtday, Lagavulin decided to present 8 years old whisky. At first glance, it sounds modest, for such a large and round anniversary. Of course, the distillery has added...

    Kolejny NAS

    Recently while shopping in a commercial network I encountered a single malt below 25 Euro. Encouraged by the price I decided to buy it. Therefore, I present The Singleton of Dufftown Spey Cascade, 40% ABV. Reportedly this whisky was matured in American and European oak. It is NAS (no age statement). Briefly about the brand of The Singleton, because it is not a distillery, I wrote on the occasion of The Singleton of Glendullan 12 years old destined for the American market. [caption...

    The only distillery on the Islay of Skye

    As probably I have already mentioned in a few places (eg. Tasting in the Orkney) a year ago I also traveled to Scotland. I visited several distilleries, but so far it eluded me to write about them. Ill have to slowly make up for these shortcomings. Due to the fact that recently I tasted Talisker 10 years old, today I give some photos from the visit in this distillery. It should be remembered that Talisker is the only distillery located on the beautiful Isle of Skye - island of the...

    The only from Isle of Skye

    Once, Talisker 10 years old was the primary whisky from this distillery. Now there are Storms, Mochs etc, but fortunately 10 years old has not disappeared from the market and is still available. We have a bottling at 45.8% ABV, why not 46%, I dont know, maybe to stand out? The difference of 0.2% is so small that it rather doesnt influence on tasting virtues. I would not cry if the color was natural and there have been no chill filtering, but I cannt have everything ;). [caption...
