The Peated Malt Speyside Glenlivet […]

Old Ballantruan to single malt stworzony w destylarni Tomintoul w Speyside. Dziś rynek whisky jest trudny, konkurencja coraz większa, ale i popyt rośnie, dlatego gorzelnie dotąd produkujące owocowe i łagodne malty, sięgaj po nowych odbiorców. W taki sposób coraz więcej firm ze Speyside oferuje torfowe wydania. Tą metodą poszli w Tomintoul i stworzyli markę mającą okazać, iż „ciemniejszą”, torfową stronę. W moje ręce wpadła Old Ballantruan 10 years old, która została zabutelkowana z 50% ABV i unchillfiltered. Brzmi przyzwoicie. A jak smakuje? [caption id=attachment_8030 align=alignnone width=1802] Old Ballantruan 10 years old[/caption] N: jeszcze w butelce czuć wyraźny i głęboki torf, zapowiada się nieźle, w kieliszku zaraz po jego napełnieniu nieco lżej, ale torf nadal jest oczywisty, mam tu palone drewno, ognisko, ślady rozgrzanego asfaltu i smoły, po chwili dostaję zapach świeżego drewna; kiedy już ta pierwsza torfowa fala minie, zaczynam wyczuwać więcej słodyczy, miód i wanilię, może krówkę, suszoną morelę i brzoskwinię, a jeszcze później także gruszkę, w efekcie, zwłaszcza po dodaniu kropli wody robi się przyjemnie kremowo; S: przyjemnie rozgrzewająco, z wyraźną dawką elementów drewnianych, lekko oleiście, na brak imbiru też nie można narzekać, podobnie jak w zapachu w drugiej fazie dostaję więcej słodkiego z miodem i karmelem, by płynnie przejść do brzoskwiń w syropie, dojrzałej gruszki, z czasem robi się wytrawnie, z dotykiem kawy; F: długi, wytrawny z elementami torfu i słodyczy. Punktacja: 84. Old Ballantruan 10 years old to porządny single malt. Przy badaniu zapachu przyda się nieco cierpliwości, aby przebić się przez torf i dotrzeć do słodkich i owocowych elementów. Smak dobrze koresponduje z zapachem. Natomiast 50% ABV wydaje się dopasowane idealnie. Smakuje mi. [caption id=attachment_8032 align=alignnone width=1920] Old...

    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...

    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...

    200 anniversary

    Recently, we have many round anniversaries on Islay, there was Laphroaig, Ardbeg and now 200 anniversary of Lagavulin. The distillery does not offer many official editions. We can choose from delicious 16 years old, more rare 12 years old and annual special editions. All gain consumer recognition. On the occasion of the 200th birtday, Lagavulin decided to present 8 years old whisky. At first glance, it sounds modest, for such a large and round anniversary. Of course, the distillery has added...

    Madeira Cask

    I do not have to hide that I have a soft spot for Laphroaig. I can not pass by without noticing it. So when recently I received an email from the distillery with an information about the possibility to participate in the lottery to purchase a bottle of Cairdeas 2016 Madeira Cask, without much hesitation I signed up. After a few days it turned out that I acquired the right to buy this release. What times, you need to participate in the lottery to buy Scotch. What to do when demand exceeds...

    Announcement of autumn

Ageing took place in bourbon casks. 57 ° North is originated form a latitude that the distillery is located. As it turned out during the tasting, whisky clouded after adding water, so it is...

    Laphroaig’s birtday

    This year, Laphroaig celebrates its 200 birthday. On this occasion, the distillery introduced a 15-year old version of its nectar, bottled at 43% ABV. Reportedly, 15 yo intended to replace the 18 yo, do not know if this rumor is true, but it would be consistent with the current prevailing trend, although on the other hand, it is not so long ago as it was 18 to replace the 15, hmm ... We shall see. [caption id=attachment_4598 align=alignnone width=801] Laphroaig 15 years old 200...

    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...
