Aberlour A’Bunadh, batch 58, 61.1% ABV

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 chill filtration and after the previous editions I can assume it’ll be good. C: dark amber; N: from the very beginning quite heavy and all-encompassing, smoked, dried plums, wood smoke, plums in chocolate, cherries, traditional compote, lots of dried fruits, traces of burned wood, touch of cut wood, then again a wave of fruits with peach, dried apricot, candied orange, there are a lot of fruits, you can still count them for a long time; after a moment a drop of lemon, and then mint and chamomile, probably enough of that description, the smell certainly does not disappoint; a drop of water enhances the impression; T: the power is obvious and does not let you forget about it, after cooling down a lot of plums appear in various forms, dried, smoked, in chocolate, fresh and ripe, sweet cherries, candied orange, after them I have ginger, cardamom and mint, with time tannins manifests, but it is still interesting; a drop of water enlarges the taste range; F: long with plums, with distinct dryness and tannins. Score: 90. As it turned out, Aberlour ABunadh, batch 58, 61.1% ABV, proved to be a very good choice and fulfilled its task. I know that everything tastes better on holidays, but the tasting repeated at home confirmed previous impressions. Hurray for ABunadh!

    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...

    Ballantine’s Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    In the area around the last Christmas, I got The Glenburgie 15 years old and The Miltonduff 15 years old. These are relatively new products on the market, which more often appeared in a mixed form in blends. In what blends you could ask? Its not difficult to guess because both bottles are signed with the Ballantines logo - Series 001 and 002 Single Malt Scotch Whisky. I think that this is a very interesting idea, because not many uninitiated people have heard about Glenburgie or Miltonduff,...

    Happy New Year

    For the first post this year I chose blended whisky, but it less recognizable. Everyone knows well the biggest on the market like Johnny Walker, Grants, and Ballantines, or even maybe Hibiki but the world does not end there. It just happens that in the glass I have The Antiquary 12 years old, 40% ABV. The origins of the brand date back to 1888, when John & William Hardie decided to put together their blend in Edinburgh. Today The Antiquary belongs to Tomatin Distillery Co., therefore...

    Merry Christmas

    Previous Ardmore on the blog was official Traditional Cask NAS, 46% ABV, that I liked, by its way I also wrote a few words about this distillery. Before that I had here Ardmore 1992/2013 bottled for The Auld Alliance Singapore, just 218 bottles, at 51,3% ABV. Today I present you Ardmore from independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail. It was distilled in 1991 and bottled 2007, we have 16 years of maturation. The power is relatively low - 43% ABV. [caption id=attachment_7620...

    The gentle dram

    The Glenlivet-Tomintoul Distillery is located in the hearty in whisky region of Speyside in the Ballindalloch. It was founded in 1964, primarily for the purposes of the rapidly growing market of blended whisky. Over time, single malts entered in the offer. Today I have in the glass the Tomintoul 12 years old in limited, as the producer indicates, version of Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish, 40% ABV. Previously, we had here Tomintoul - the gentle dram with a peaty tang, that is a peated NAS from this...

    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...

    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...
