Dzikie drożdże […]

Glenmorangie Allta to już dziesiąte wydanie z serii Private Edition. Tym razem motywem przewodnim miały być drożdże, gdyż do fermentacji zacieru do tej whisky posłużyły dziko żyjące drożdże znalezione na polu jęczmienia należącego do destylarni. W sieci jest już sporo informacji na temat tego konkretnego wydania i nie ma sensu abym je tu powielał. Allta butelkowana jest ze słuszną mocą 51.2% ABV, ma naturalny kolor i nie była filtrowana na zimno. Zatem do dzieła. N: zaraz po otwarciu buteleczki: rodzynki, orzechy, słodko z karmelem, kokosem i wanilią, makowiec; po nalaniu do kieliszka: początek alkoholowy, lekko imbirowy, zbożowy, skórka pomarańczowa, dojrzała pomarańcza, grejpfrut; zostawiam drama na chwilę aby pooddychał, jakoś wszystko zamknęło się, czekam dalej; chyba trzeba dodać wody, przez krótką chwilę zrobiło się tak na początku w buteleczce, potem lekko piernikowo z dotykiem drożdżówki; S: intensywnie, czuć moc alkoholu, imbir, spora goryczka, a do tego pewna doza owoców: pomarańcze, brzoskwinie, banany, po dodaniu wody w zasadzie bez większych zmian, nadal lekko szczypie język, ale i pozostawia owoce, z czasem mam też dotyk czegoś słodkiego; F: całkiem długi, wytrawny z imbirem i pozostałościami grejpfruta. Punktacja: 82. Allta to ciekawy eksperyment, generalnie próbując w ciemno nie powiedziałbym, że to Glenmorangie. Moim zdaniem wymaga pewnego czasu, przyzwyczajenia i dodania kilku kropel wody. Wiem, że celem destylarni było uwypuklenie działania drożdży, choć mam wrażenie, że malt mógł sobie jeszcze podojrzewać w beczce, ale to tylko moja opinia. Z drugiej strony, aby odkryć rzeczywisty wpływ droży należałoby bezpośrednio porównać tę whisky stworzoną ze standardowo stosowanych droży, leżakującą ten sam czas w tych samych beczkach etc. Takich możliwości nie mam. Dziękuję za sampla. Pozdrowienia dla wszystkich! [caption id=attachment_7986...

    Kilka dni temu uczestniczyłem w degustacji organizowanej przez sklep Dom Whisky w Redzie, a prowadzonej przez Brand Ambasadora Mateusza Zabiegaja. Próbowaliśmy wtedy Bruichladdich Laddie Classic, Bruichladdich Islay Barley 2010, Port Charlotte Islay Barley 2011, Port Charlotte 10 years old i Octomore 08.1. Dodatkową niespodzianką był Bruichladdich Black Art 26 years old. Po imprezie zdecydowałem się zabrać ze sobą do domu Bruichladdich 10 years old (oczywiście drodze umowy...

    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...

    Blended Malt od Douglas Laing

    Its time to enter the New Year. For this occasion, I bought something that caught my attention above all with the look. Yes, I know it does not have the slightest impact on the tasting values, but you do not always have to take everything so seriously. This seriousness is more than enough for every day. Therefore, it started from the package - you can assess it by pictures below. Interesting, with a movable ring in the middle, allows you to play with characters. What else? We have here...

    Recently, I had the opportunity to take a walk through the airport shops, mainly in the whisky departments. In fact, nothing particularly interested me. Yes, I met terribly expensive bottles Dalmore, Macallan or 50-year-old Glenfiddich, except that I treat them rather as a permanent exhibition. From products for people, my eyes attracted Aberlour ABunadh, batch 58, 61.1% ABV and I decided to take it on a further journey. Yes, its a NAS, except that in a natural presentation - colour, no...

    Peat and red wine.

    During last Whisky Live Warsaw 2017, a friend of mine presented me a solid sample of Longrow Red 13 years old Malbec Cask Matured - great thanks. Longrow is a peated whisky produced by the Springbank Distillery, next to the Springbark (medium peated) and much milder Hazelburn. We are talking about the Campbeltown Region, which is the smallest whisky region in Scotland. In addition to these, there are also Glen Scotia Distillery and Glengyle Distillery producing Kilkerran. My guest for today...

    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 ......

    Whisky Festival 2015 Exclusive

    I have tried single malts matured in many different barrels, after Bourbon of course, sherry, port, madeira, other wines and beer too. I did not drink whisky aged in sparkling wine casks. So its time for a new sensations or maybe it will not make much difference? Interesting ... During a visit to a distillery on the Isle of Jura, Jura Tastival hit my eyes, specially released for the festival in 2015, distilled in 1997 and bottled with 52% ABV. Above that natural color and non-chill filtered....

    Independent Caol Ila

    Yesterday I was at Whisky Live Sopot 2017. This is the first edition of this event in Sopot. It was smaller (in terms of the number of exhibitors and visitors) than eg Whisky Live Warsaw 2016 or 2015, but for sure more intimate, which really suited me. I dont like crowds. You could talk freely to each other and easily get anywhere. Waiting and counting on next editions. One of the more interesting stands was Adelphi. There Caol Ila 13 years old felt into my hands. Distilled in 2003, bottled...
