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 ... That’s the story. Only beer was available. One day, with more time available with help came the Internet and pointed to the right place. Basically in Utah strong alcohol may not be sold in cities with larger population concentrations. It is available only in specialty stores far away from people. Coming to one of them, I felt like a conspirator, as if I had been involved in a secret operation. Interesting ;). Fortunately, in the shop everything was okay and probably legal. A large selection of wines and spirits, including made in Poland, some malts and bourbons. I was looking for something local and found High West Whiskey from Park City, Utah. So I have here Bourye - a blend of straight whiskers with a minimum age of 9 years, 46% ABV, natural color and not chill filtered. [caption id=attachment_7423 align=alignnone width=1920] High West Whiskey Bourye[/caption] C: amber; N: less intrusive than classic Bourbons, but of course sweet with caramel, coconut, and a pinch of pepper, after a while also comes peach, apricot, rhubarb and hard candy; T: of course, first of all sweet, with coconut, caramel and toffee, but also with a pinch of pepper, after a moment the fruits emerge, young orange and its peel, peach, quince and apricot, glimpses of coffee, cappuccino; F: medium long, still sweet with traces of coffee. Score: 80. High West Whiskey Bourye is an interesting proposition, quite one directional, sweet, but also with appearing fruits. Generally it...

    Wild Turkey z określeniem wieku

    Wandering through the streets of downtown Chicago, I came across a grocery store, which was not at all easy, with all these skyscrapers. Inside, I met the shelf with bourbons. I could not pass by indifferently, the choice fell on Russells Reserve Small Batch 10 years old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, bottled 90 proof - 45% ABV. Despite the less well-known name this is basically Wild Turkey with specified age. So after a while I ended up with a glass in my hand in a hotel room....

    Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky

    So far, here appeared only one Bourbon and it was a classic Jim Beam. Time for another representative from Kentucky, Makers Mark. Recently, in the world of Bourbon became loud, as the manufacturer intended to reduce the ABV. However, because of the criticism, they decided to leave 45% ABV. Bravo, a company that listens to its customers. Probably the main reason for trying to reduce the ABV was, present also in the Scotch or Japanese whisky, growth in demand and declining stocks. The price...
