Photo report […]

After the last post about Bowmore Tempest 10 years old Batch VI it is worth, if only for a moment, to move to the place of its creation, which I visited during last years stay on Islay. I was there the second time, probably not the last ;) Without any further ado, I invite you to a photo report from a visit to the Bowmore Distillery.

    Highland Single Malt Whisky

    Ardmore distillery is located in the Highlands, in Kennethmont in Aberdeanshire. It was founded by Adam Teacher in 1898. Most of the production is used to compose a blend - Teachers. Darker, in the sense of peat, accents in Teachers come just from Ardmore. On the market basically there is only one edition of this single malt. Although recently Ardmore Legacy also appeared, but it hasnt fallen in my hands yet. With any luck you can meet other Ardmore expressions at the independent bottlers...

    in Airbus A340

    For the end of posts related to my recent stay in Japan I left the last whisky partly tasted in the Land of the Rising Sun. Partly, because in the plane on the way back to Europe. [caption id=attachment_4239 align=alignnone width=801] Airbus A340[/caption] Whisky on Japanese airports has a relatively low prices in comparison to those appearing in stores. Unfortunately, I did not buy there any large bottle, I flew to Gdansk via Munich, where on the security check I would have to...

    After visting, tasting.

    Previously I presented a photo report of Yamazaki Distillery visit. As it happens in decent distilleries, on site you can make tasting. Usually only basic single malt releases are available. In Yamazaki it was a lot more interesting. While the distillery tour, of course, we were offered Yamazaki NAS and Hakushu NAS - given in popular in Japan way, ie. with plenty of ice or for tough guys without dilution. Hesitantly, but I decided to let go my purism and check the ice version. Very tasty,...

    At the source of Japanese whisky

    Japanese whisky has been long close to my palate. The largest Japanese company producing whisky is Suntory, having in their resources the oldest distillery Yamazaki. I wrote an article about the beginnings of Japanese whiskey (it is here but in Polish only). The blog also hosted Yamazaki 10 years old and 18 years old. Yamazaki is located in the village of the same name, a short distance from Osaka and Kyoto. Thus, being close it is worth to visit the distillery. You have to remember that...

    Whisky presentation as I like

    The last post in the mini-series of Bowmore I am devoting to the most interesting one to date, Bowmore 10 years old Tempest. It is a Batch 3 of this release and like the previous it is characterized by a natural presentation. So we have a natural color, unchillfiltered and 55.6% ABV. The bottle I bought during a visit to the distillery on Islay, so I have the additional sentiment to it. [caption id=attachment_3075 align=alignnone width=801] Bowmore 10 years old Tempest Batch...

    Edition for Travel Retail

    Continuing the mini-series of Bowmore, without unnecessary descriptions lets move on to the Bowmore 15 years old Mariner. It is worth to write about it as Bowmore is introducing new editions for the Travel Retail, so Enigma and Mariner will be replaced. [caption id=attachment_3061 align=alignnone width=801] Bowmore 15 years old Mariner[/caption] N: sea ​​salt, sea air, light peat, seaweed and fishing nets, with a time sweeter notes are breaking through, a bit of caramel,...

    Edition for Travel Retail

    After describing visit to Bowmore distillery on Islay, Bowmore Legend tasting impressions and of course trying Bowmore 1968 31 years old at the Whisky Live Paris 2013, we should go deeper into the subject and refer to the next versions of the whisky. Thus, may I present Bowmore 12 years old Enigma, edition offered mainly in Travel Retail, but also from time to time available in other places. The advantage of many versions of whisky in Travel Retail is a 1 liter bottle and once attractive...
