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...

    Silesian Beskids Polish Whisky

    Wild Fields Sherry Cask to dla mnie pewne zaskoczenie. To polska whisky, a niewiele o niej wiem. Generalnie dowiedziałem o niej z Instagrama od moich amerykańskich koleżanek, które jej próbowały i były zadowolone. W efekcie też nabyłem butelkę, aby sprawdzić co w trawie piszczy. Producent określa ten trunek jako Silesian Beskids Polish Whisky i podaje, że mamy do czynienia z single grain whisky (polskie żyto). Destylacja nastąpiła w grudniu 2014 roku, napełnienie beczek w...

    Kilka dni temu uczestniczyłem w degustacji organizowanej przez sklep Dom Whisky w Redzie, a prowadzonej przez Brand Ambasadora Mateusza Zabiegaja. Próbowaliśmy wtedy Bruichladdich Laddie Classic, Bruichladdich Islay Barley 2010, Port Charlotte Islay Barley 2011, Port Charlotte 10 years old i Octomore 08.1. Dodatkową niespodzianką był Bruichladdich Black Art 26 years old. Po imprezie zdecydowałem się zabrać ze sobą do domu Bruichladdich 10 years old (oczywiście drodze umowy...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
