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...

    Second edition

    Last week a bottle of the latest release of J.A. Baczewski Whisky came into my hands. This seems to be the second edition of this whisky recently. You will find my impressions from the first edition tasting at this link. [caption id=attachment_7865 align=alignnone width=1920] J.A.

    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...

    It’s always an interesting experience

    During the 5th Whisky Festival in Jastrzębia Góra, I tried many malts, I also got a few samples, including one mysterious. Mysterious, without specifying any details, just for fun in blind tasting. There was nothing left for me to do. Nice weather, so I called the dog and went to the sea to taste. In order not to get carried away by the beautiful nature, I carried out the second part of the tasting after returning home. [caption id=attachment_7809 align=alignnone width=1920] Blind...

    Another representative of the mysterious series

    Not so long ago a courier knocked at my door handing a mysterious silver suitcase. I completely did not know what was going on, it was only after breaking into the interior that the Glenlivet Code and the equally mysterious black tasting glass were hidden.

    Sherry casks and peat

    I was going to to place this post in April, because the bottle of Bowmore 10 years old Dark & Intense, 40% ABV, I bought back then while a visit to Kyto, Japan. I came across it accidentally, in fact I accidentally came across a whisky store that was next to the sushi bar, which was the purpose of my visit to that part of the city. In the store, the choice was quite wide and decent, the prices did not seem excessive either. I think it was cheaper than in my country. After deeper...

    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...

    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,...
