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 whisky is to present the character of its future, own products. We have a natural colour, non chill filtered and bottling at 46% ABV. In the glass I have the third edition of this whisky, which is to be lightly peated and finished in Tuscan red wine casks. [caption id=attachment_7939 align=alignnone width=1920] Raasay While We Wait[/caption] C: honey; N: immediately after pouring into the glass it is a little irritating, I have to give it a moment to breathe; some spices maybe..., cloves, ginger, not particularly volatile, rather calm, highland character, summer meadow, dry hay, chamomile, wildflowers, in the distance dry wood, maybe even slightly burnt and charred, with time I can feel the sweet elements, some caramel, vanilla, peach, banana, then more fruits, nectarine, dried apricot, pear in the compote, lemon peel, pleasant summer character; T: slightly warming, dry, with elements of wood, that are my first impressions, after a while it gets sweeter with caramel and vanilla, the touch of caramelized orange, grapefruit, traces of grilled seafood, all the time the ginger is quite clear, as well as light bitterness and general the impression of a delicate wood, with time I got the touch of an espresso; F: quite long with ginger, dry. Score: 80. Raasay While We Wait is a kind of surprise. I was expecting something very young and uncouth. This single malt should take a breath in a glass, after which it turns out to be calm and unobtrusive. The taste to...

    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...

    Fully matured Ardbeg

    Today, wandering the streets of Sopot, in principle, quite unexpectedly, I hit tasting of a new Ardbeg Twenty Something 23 years old. Its good sometimes to go out and explore the city ;) Were dealing here with a bottling from 2017, guaranteed 23 years of maturation, as certified by the producer and non chill-filtered. Power is placed at a reasonable 46.3% ABV. This is the second edition of the Twenty Something, prepared to honor the people who protected the distillery from complete closure...

    Young Sherrymonster

    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...

    Private Edition 9

    Glenmorangie has just presented the ninth release of Private Edition. It just happens that I have a beautifully presented small bottle of this drink together with a tasting glass, all properly packed in a nice box. I must admit that Glenmorangie is bringing presenting samples on a new level. This time we also have NAS, traditional 46% ABV, unchillfiltered and fully matured in the barrels after Rye Whiskey, which is now regaining recognition among consumers. I like the last editions of the...

    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...

    Utah Whiskey

    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 ......

    Thirsty malt

    Cairdeas, or friendship, thats how Laphroaig calls his annual editions for Feis Ile. Probably not to be called otherwise, since the purchase of this bottle this year was a real torment. First, I was looking for Cask Strength, but this quickly ended, then Laphroaigs website decided to prove that youre not strong enough to face it. Finally after two days I was able to reach the stage of entering credit card details. And then, no confirmation, email, contact, nothing. After a few days the...

    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....
