Glentauchers 25 Year Old 1992 The Nectar of the Daily Drams

Distilleerderij: Cambus
Regio: Schotland
Fles: Cambus 25 Year Old 1991/2017, Liquid Treasures ‘Faces of Angkor’, sherry
butt
Kleur: brons
ABV: 52.7%

Old School Sherry

Cambus is niet meer. Opgericht in 1813 was ze op een bepaald moment zelfs
de grootste van Schotland, maar sinds 1993 is ze onherroepelijk dicht. Vandaag
de dag is er enkel nog een – volledig geautomatiseerde – kuiperij. We proeven
een distillaat uit 1991 dat een kwarteeuw rijpte op een sherryvat, iets wat je
niet zo vaak tegenkomt. Het Duitse Liquid Treasures bottelde op vatsterkte.

Mocht je me dit blind voorgeschoteld hebben, zou ik – op de neus althans –
niet meteen aan whisky denken. Dit heeft vooral veel weg van old school cognac of sherry. Muf en is
mierzoet, aromatisch, rijk en rond op sigarenbladeren, belegen eik, walnoten,
Luikse wafels, blauwe bosbessen, speculoos en nat zand. En… het is ronduit
geweldig. Prima neus die erg oud aandoet (wat het met zijn 25 jaar ook wel is,
natuurlijk).

Heerlijk romig en donkerzoet, hoewel hij betrekkelijk snel droog wordt.
Opnieuw heel wat donkerzoete toetsen die eerder aan oloroso sherry doen denken
dan aan whisky, maar wie maalt daar om als het zo lekker is? Luikse siroop,
Colombiaanse koffiebonen, mais op de barbecue, gesuikerde popcorn, geroosterde
noten… heerlijk… maar toch geen whisky? Tja, blijkbaar wel, hé.

Er lange, licht pikante, donkerzoete maar drogende afdronk.

Dit is een vloeibaar dessert dat me echt aangenaam verraste. Maar van het
typische Cambus-profiel schiet absoluut niets over. So what? Zo’n 150 EUR, wat hij zeker waard is. Koop ‘m nu je nog
kan!

87/100

Bowmore Vintner’s Trilogy 27 Years

I believe this will complete our reviews of the rather excellent Vintner’s Trilogy from Bowmore distillery:

The last part is a 27 year-old malt which spent 13 years in ex-bourbon barrels and another 14 years in Port pipes, resting in Bowmore’s famous No 1 vaults on Islay.

 

 

Bowmore 27 Years Port Cask - Vintner's TrilogyBowmore 27 Years Port Cask - Vintner's TrilogyBowmore 27 yo ‘Port Cask’
(48,3%, OB ‘Vintner’s Trilogy’ 2018)

Nose: aromatic nose, combining smoky notes with damp tobacco leaves and sweeter notes. Red berries, milk chocolate and toffee. Heather, mint and subtle medicinal touches. Curry spices a little sandalwood. Rather fresh and elegant, with closely interwoven aromas. Mouth: creamy texture, with a syrupy berry sweetness again, now also cooked fruits (peaches), as well as toffee and milk chocolate. Menthol freshness. Some violet candy but nothing perfumy. Herbal notes, lots of dry ashes and a very light salty touch. Finish: sweet and smoky, with some tangy oak and leather.

I’m generally not a big fan of port wood maturation but this is done skilfully. A good Bowmore with syrupy fruits. Really good but it doesn’t beat the 26 Years for me. Still available from The Whisky Exchange (the 26 Years as well by the way).

Score: 89/100

Auchentoshan 1990 (for CWS China)

Here’s another one of these interesting bottlings exclusive to the Chief Whisky Society in China.

It’s an Auchentoshan 1990, 27 years old and bottled from a single Oloroso sherry cask. Notice the brown hue, rather than the full-blown reddish tint that we would expect from first-fill sherry these days.

 

 

Auchentoshan 1990 27 Years - CWS ChinaAuchentoshan 1990 27 Years - CWS ChinaAuchentoshan 27 yo 1990
(53,1%, OB for CWS China 2017, first-fill Oloroso, 512 btl.)

Nose: not the classic Oloroso style indeed. There’s brown sugar, leafy notes, overripe pear and oranges instead of figs or raisins. Goes on with hay, leather, dried flowers, cloves and Dulce de Leche (love that). Nicely different. Mouth: a spicy, leafy profile again, full of ginger, cloves, cinnamon and hints of Medjool dates. Some tobacco and Seville oranges. Roasted nuts with a bitter hint of Turkish coffee towards the end. Hints of sherry brandy rather than Oloroso wine. Finish: long, still very spice-driven with bitter oranges.

Interesting Auchentoshan, because it has this Brandy de Jerez profile rather than a classic Oloroso style. European oak, probably. Good selection.

Score: 88/100

EVOLUTION OF THE JAMESON BOTTLE AND LABEL IS SET TO CONTINUE THE SUCCESS STORY OVER 50 YEARS ON – Irish Whiskey News

EVOLUTION OF THE JAMESON BOTTLE AND LABEL

IS SET TO CONTINUE THE SUCCESS STORY OVER 50 YEARS ON

– First introduced in 1968, the new smooth pack contains the same triple-distilled Jameson that has made it the world’s No.1 Irish whiskey – 

Jameson Irish Whiskey, which is produced by Irish Distillers in Midleton Distillery, has unveiled an evolution of its iconic bottle and label design 50 years after it was first introduced. The refreshed look highlights the brand’s provenance, triple-distillation production method and premium quality cues to whiskey drinkers as it looks to strengthen its position as the world’s leading Irish whiskey.

Created by Stockholm’s Pond Design agency, the designs introduce a bold visual identity that has stand-out appeal and further drives differentiation in the dynamic Irish whiskey category. The bottle shape now features a tapered body and a more generous shoulder curve, while a distinctive embossed label ‘eyebrow’ and heel at the base make the bottle more tactile and memorable to hold. The distinctive green glass bottle and easy-to-pour neck remain in place, in line with feedback from market research among bartenders and Irish whiskey drinkers.

The refreshed label is printed on textured paper and reinterprets key elements of the design – most notably the Jameson family crest – while still retaining the most recognisable features to create a more timeless and cohesive look. Messaging on the bottle has been streamlined to emphasise the triple-distilled production method of Jameson, which crafts its renowned smooth taste, and its Irish provenance. The update is underpinned by a more vibrant colour palette designed to stand out and includes a brighter red cap and fresher greens and creams on the label.

The iconic green Jameson bottle that is known around the world today was first introduced in 1968, when bottling was brought in-house at the Bow Street Distillery as the era of whiskey bonding came to an end. The signature green, cream and maroon colours were inspired by the stained-glass panels in the doors of the historic distillery, installed in the late 19th Century by then Production Manager George Jameson, and can still be viewed at the Jameson Distillery Bow street today. Over the past 50 years, the bottle has evolved with the times but key elements such as the green glass, family crest and ship have remained in place to inspire new whiskey drinkers with the Jameson story.

The bottle is constructed using pressure sensitive label (PSL) technology at Irish Distillers’ Fox Geese bottling facility in Dublin – a new and more efficient process that allows for split labels to be applied to the glass bottles and a more premium finish. The new Jameson Irish Whiskey bottles will be available in Ireland from January 2019, and from the USA and other markets from March ahead of St. Patrick’s Day, and will be introduced across Jameson Caskmates, Jameson Black Barrel and Jameson Crested throughout the year.

Simon Fay, International Marketing Director for Jameson at Irish Distillers, commented: “Jameson Irish Whiskey is the world’s favourite Irish whiskey and is leading the renaissance within the category that we have seen over the past ten years. As such, we are committed to investing in the brand and we are confident that our new smooth pack, with the same triple distilled Irish whiskey inside is the winning combination to drive distinctiveness and relevance with whiskey drinkers and bartenders. With 29 years of consecutive of growth, our mission is to maintain momentum in key markets and accelerate growth and we believe that the subtle design evolution will help us to share the fearless spirit of Jameson with even more people around the world and continue the success story for many years to come.”

Tasting NotesGeplaatst door Mark Dermul vr, januari 11, 2019 07:19:11

Distilleerderij: Cambus
Regio: Schotland
Fles: Cambus 25 Year Old 1991/2017, Liquid Treasures ‘Faces of Angkor’, sherry
butt
Kleur: brons
ABV: 52.7%

Old School Sherry

Cambus is niet meer. Opgericht in 1813 was ze op een bepaald moment zelfs
de grootste van Schotland, maar sinds 1993 is ze onherroepelijk dicht. Vandaag
de dag is er enkel nog een – volledig geautomatiseerde – kuiperij. We proeven
een distillaat uit 1991 dat een kwarteeuw rijpte op een sherryvat, iets wat je
niet zo vaak tegenkomt. Het Duitse Liquid Treasures bottelde op vatsterkte.

Mocht je me dit blind voorgeschoteld hebben, zou ik – op de neus althans –
niet meteen aan whisky denken. Dit heeft vooral veel weg van old school cognac of sherry. Muf en is
mierzoet, aromatisch, rijk en rond op sigarenbladeren, belegen eik, walnoten,
Luikse wafels, blauwe bosbessen, speculoos en nat zand. En… het is ronduit
geweldig. Prima neus die erg oud aandoet (wat het met zijn 25 jaar ook wel is,
natuurlijk).

Heerlijk romig en donkerzoet, hoewel hij betrekkelijk snel droog wordt.
Opnieuw heel wat donkerzoete toetsen die eerder aan oloroso sherry doen denken
dan aan whisky, maar wie maalt daar om als het zo lekker is? Luikse siroop,
Colombiaanse koffiebonen, mais op de barbecue, gesuikerde popcorn, geroosterde
noten… heerlijk… maar toch geen whisky? Tja, blijkbaar wel, hé.

Er lange, licht pikante, donkerzoete maar drogende afdronk.

Dit is een vloeibaar dessert dat me echt aangenaam verraste. Maar van het
typische Cambus-profiel schiet absoluut niets over. So what? Zo’n 150 EUR, wat hij zeker waard is. Koop ‘m nu je nog
kan!
