Whisky Legend 2016


Blind tasting in Warsaw […]

Two weeks ago, oh how time flies ... I had the pleasure to participate in the Whisky Legend 2016 tasting organized by Daniel and Grzegorz from Whiskymywife. Leitmotif was Port Ellen versus the rest - only closed distilleries. Convention the same as at Whisky Legend 2015 - blind tasting. Information about what, in what order we drank was revealed at the end. Below I present my basic tasting impressions, but I didnt write everything during the event, in effect, records are not able to cast magic of the liquor ;). I also added a score of the whole group and mine. Heres the whole set: [caption id=attachment_5665 align=alignnone width=801] Whisky Legend 2016 fot. Daniel Lichota[/caption] Starter.

    My year

    In fact, I wanted to write that here we have the first Port Ellen on the blog, but not, after all, it has already appeared on the occasion of Whisky Live Paris 2013 and Whisky Legend tasting. I will not go into unnecessary arguments that it is legendary distillery from Islay, closed in 1983. One only needs to be pointed out that this vintage 1979, bottled at 46% ABV in 2013, by an independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail. Lot nr RO/12/08. [caption id=attachment_4585 align=alignnone...
