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.

    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...

    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...
