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, and you don’t have to look a lot for those who know the Ballantines brand. In this way, probably many will reach for the new single malt, already knowing Ballantines. [caption id=attachment_7668 align=alignnone width=1920] The Glenburgie 15 years old The Miltonduff 15 years old[/caption] Both of todays delinquents I have tried during Whisky Live Warsaw 2017, and even thanks to the courtesy of Jan from johnnieswhiskies.blogspot.com, together with Andrzej from e-whisky.pl we made a fast comparison with independent editions from Gordon & MacPhail. The fact is that it was held during the festivals very free atmosphere and that comparison is difficult to consider professional. Oh, thats just fun. Besides, in both cases I must certainly praise the indication of age, 15 years old, maybe NAS attack is slowly coming to an end, hmm ... probably not yet, but it is a good prognosis. Let’s get to work! [caption id=attachment_7669 align=alignnone width=1920] The Glenburgie 15 years old[/caption] The Glenburgie 15 years old, 40% ABV N: in a bottle: sweet, caramel, toffee, scorched sugar, vanilla creme brulee; okay ... its enough to pour it into a glass, and here it starts quite fresh, for sure with apple and apple pie, right away pear, all this is sprinkled with brown sugar and creme brulee, very calm and nice, no annoying alcoholic notes, it seems to me that the leitmotif is always apple and apple pie; T: here it is warming up with ginger...

    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...

    Independent Macallan

    Macallan previously appeared on the blog in the official version of Fine Oak, after 18 years of maturing. Today I decided to reach for Macallan 21 years old from the independent bottler Douglas Laing, Old & Rare series, Platinum Selection. We have here a single cask - refill hogshead, 245 bottles (mines no 6), cask strength 52% ABV, natural colour. Distillation took place in March 1989, bottling in September 2010. The presentation is just perfect. [caption id=attachment_7160...

    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...

    Mysterious malt

    A few days ago I got a sample of The Glenlivet Cipher. The assumption is a mysterious malt, of which the consumer has little to know and should independently explore the whisky, without any suggestions from the manufacturer. You need to find your own cipher. [caption id=attachment_6722 align=alignnone width=1920] The Glenlivet Cipher[/caption] We know its The Glenlivet and bottled with the power of 48% ABV. We do not know the rest, eg. age (NAS - no age statement), but today...

    Kolejny Benromach

    After the previous post about the Benromach 10 years old 100 Proof I decided to go with the flow and try the Benromach Wood Finish Hermitage. Lets get right to the details, and use as an introduction the previous post. This single malt was distilled in 2007 and bottled in 2016 with a power of 45% ABV. The basic time whisky matured in first fill Bourbon casks, followed by 31 months in barrels of wine from Hermitage Appellation. Quite a long finish in wine barrels. [caption...

    Small Speyside Distillery

    During the last Whisky Festival in Jastrzębia Góra Mr. John regaled me with some delicious single malts. On the way back I got also a sample of Benromach 10 years old 100 Proof, 57% ABV, which Im going just to taste. This is the debut of Benromach on the blog (not counting the Masterclass at the Whisky Live Paris 2013), so at the outset, I must specify that the distillery is located in Speyside and is one of the smallest. It was founded in 1898 near Forres. As with the case of many...

    Kolejny NAS

    Recently while shopping in a commercial network I encountered a single malt below 25 Euro. Encouraged by the price I decided to buy it. Therefore, I present The Singleton of Dufftown Spey Cascade, 40% ABV. Reportedly this whisky was matured in American and European oak. It is NAS (no age statement). Briefly about the brand of The Singleton, because it is not a distillery, I wrote on the occasion of The Singleton of Glendullan 12 years old destined for the American market. [caption...
