Distillery Exclusive […]

Today it is time for available only in the distillery Glenfiddich 15 years old, cask strength 58.1% ABV. I bought that bottle and I filled it myself there. It comes from batch 20 its no is 81. Everything happened four years ago on September 24, 2013. To an even greater joy the Master Distiller Brian Kinsman dedicated it to me. Brian once again thank you and best regards. In fact, the whole trip was very successful. [caption id=attachment_7440 align=alignnone width=1920] Glenfiddich 15 years old 58.1% ABV Distillery Exclusive[/caption] C: amber; N: still in the bottle I have an explosion of fruit: peach, apricot, orange, apple, pear and plum, all interwoven with vanilla and pleasant oak - a very good omen of what will happen next, I have big expectations ;), in the glass it begins with delicate pepper, ginger, but at once I also have the sweetness of vanilla, caramel and a little oak, in the second phase the pre-existing fruits come back all the time maintained and replaced by each other, then there are spices, cardamom and escalating ginger, after adding a few drops of water it became sweeter with more orange, in general malt opens even more; T: mmmm blissful and comprehensive with a slight sparking on the tongue, sweet vanilla, caramel and toffee, ripe oranges, cooked apples and pears, fruit cake, prunes also in chocolate, then traces of oak and ginger, after addition of a few drops of water it just opened up beautifully; F: long, sweet with ripe orange and ginger. Score: 90. Glenfiddich 15 years old 58.1% ABV Distillery Exclusive is much to my liking, it is versatile and beautifully balanced. Taste corresponds well to smell. Despite of the high power it is possible to taste without adding water, though for the experiment a few drops will not harm.

    US Exclusive

    During the holidays in Florida, by the way of buying champagne on New Years Eve 2016, I had, of course, revise a shelf with single malts. In fact, there were only standards and have already had to reach for Bourbon as the corner of my eye noticed Glenfiddich 14 years old Bourbon Barrel Reserve US Exclusive, 43% ABV. According to the label this version is offered exclusively in the US. Matured in bourbon casks for 14 years and then finished in the fresh American oak. The concept here is...

    Adult Glenfiddich.

    It stands itself on my shelf, such a small bottle with the inscription Glenfiddich 18 years old, 40% ABV. I dont even remember from where I got it. It seems that somewhere in Asia, it was added to a large bottle of Glenfiddich. It makes no sense that it would stand so alone longer and get dusted. Definitely it must feel neglected. I have to take care of it. In the summer I described a 12 years old version, there I put a lot of links to other posts about this distillery and its spirits. I...

    Dojrzały blend

    Today I came across by a desire for blended whisky, not on standard, widely available release, but for something less common. I started rummaging in the closet, I knew that something must be there. I waded through the malts and finally found Grants 18 years old. I have tasted 12 year old version, but 18 not yet. I do not need to remind anyone that the brand is part of the William Grant & Sons. The family company, or basically a family corporation I should say, their hands focus many...

    Blended whisky

    Grants is a blended whisky. The brand belongs to William Grant & Sons. Immediately attracts the eye with characteristic triangular bottle, as in Glenfiddich. Today I have in my glass 12 year old version and Im curious about the tasting impressions. [caption id=attachment_4384 align=alignnone width=801] Grants 12 years old[/caption] N: pretty fruity, plums, oranges, apples, lots of mineral notes and a little grain, but not unpleasant, then vanilla, raisins and traces of nuts,...

    Typical Speysider

    Some time ago, while in Malaysia on the island of Langkawi I bought a bottle of The Balvenie 12 years old Double Wood. I remember that it cost very little, ca. 100 PLN (25 Euro). It would be a sorrow to pass by without buying it. [caption id=attachment_4363 align=alignnone width=801] Balvenie 12 years old Double Wood[/caption] The Balvenie is located in the heart of Speyside, which is in Dufftown, in the immediate vicinity of Glenfiddich.
