GLEN GARIOCH LAUNCHES FIRST VINTAGE MATURED SOLELY IN SHERRY CASKS – Scotch Whisky News

Glen Garioch Logo II

GLEN GARIOCH LAUNCHES FIRST VINTAGE MATURED SOLELY IN SHERRY CASKS 

Limited Edition Glen Garioch Vintage 1999

Glen Garioch has released its inaugural expression to be matured solely in Oloroso sherry casks, as part of the Highland distillery’s small batch vintage programme.

Hand selected at the peak of perfection, the Glen Garioch Vintage, distilled in 1999 is non-chill filtered to retain its authentic, full-bodied Highland character.

Handcrafted and matured in sherry casks for 14 years at the Highland Distillery in the heart of the rural village of Oldmeldrum, Aberdeenshire, this heart-warming dram captures the essence of Scottish Highland charm. The Oloroso sherry casks have influenced this robust spirit to give the malt its dark, sweet fruit, treacle and maple syrup notes and spicy, syrupy taste.

With just 1,000 cases available globally, the Glen Garioch Vintage 1999 is sure to become a favourite with malt enthusiasts when it hits the shelves of specialist whisky and liquor stores from October.

Rachel Barrie, Master Blender for Morrison Bowmore Distillers, said, “This is a full-bodied malt with exquisite rich fruit, chocolate and toffee notes, which really captures the essence of the Highlands.

“Hand picked and bottled at 56.3% ABV to bring out the rich spicy flavours of the Vintage 1999 really showcases the quality of the spirit produced from this small artisan distillery through our limited edition programme.

“This is an exciting small-batch release that encapsulates the rare find that is Glen Garioch itself and I’m sure will be a favourite with any whisky enthusiast.”

Available from selected specialist retailers from the end of September, Glen Garioch Vintage 1999 is bottled at 56.3% ABV will retail at circa £59.99.

Tasting notes:

Walnut brown in colour, the 1999 Vintage is full-bodied and intensely sherried with a syrupy mouth coating texture. Treacle toffee, chocolate and maple syrup soak into the palate, carrying the tingly warmth of nutmeg and ginger spices, tangy orange marmalade and dates into a long, deep finish of raisins, caramelised toffee and liquorice.

The Finest Tradition Continues With The All New Hankey Bannister 40 Year Old – Scotch Whisky News

HB 40 New Limited Edition Open Pack  Bottle LoRes

The finest tradition continues with the all new Hankey Bannister 40 Year Old

The finest tradition continues with the all new Hankey  Bannister 40 Year Old  Following the international success of  Hankey Bannister 40 Year Old released  originally in 2007, the multi-award winning Blended Scotch Whisky brand, has just unveiled a new expression of its most premium offering. Only 1480 bottles of this rare whisky will be made available over a three year period, starting with 500 released into select markets and travel retail outlets this year.

Finest Spirit
The new Hankey Bannister 40 Year Old is once again a creation of Stuart Harvey, the Master Blender for Inver House Distillers, who hand-selected only the finest casks of whisky maturing in Scotland and combined them artfully. On this occasion very rare Highland malt whiskies, dating from 1970 and 1967, matured in exquisite Spanish sherry hogsheads and butts were combined with even rarer Lowland grain whiskies to create a luxurious and full flavoured Blended Scotch Whisky for the most discerning drinkers. The combination of the most prestigious Highland malts, exceptional casks, over four decades of flavour development and Master Blender’s unparalleled skills and experience, makes for a dram
which stands out in its category. Hankey Bannister 40 Year Old is sure to impress and surprise with its robustness, flavour concentration and balance.

Dark copper-gold in appearance, Hankey Bannister 40 Year Old has comforting sweet vanilla and home-baked cake dough on the nose, with notes of butterscotch, spiced caramelized bananas, candied apricot and baked apples. On the palate it is incredibly rich and complex: spicy and peppery with fruity notes of figs, dates and cinnamon and a subtle, lingering finish of autumn spices with sweet tinges of bitter chocolate and honeycomb toffee.

Hankey Bannister 40 Year Old is bottled at the natural strength of 44.3% ABV, it hasn’t been chill-filtered and delights with a natural colour.

True Character
Exceptional whisky calls for appropriate packaging. Hankey Bannister 40 Year Old is presented in a bespoke decanter crowned with a bold stopper. Each decanter is encased in a keepsake box with a stunning engraved metal closure and supplied with a signed and numbered booklet certifying authenticity.

Lynne Buckley, the Hankey Bannister Brand Manager said:

‘We once again congratulate Stuart Harvey on the great skill he
has shown in creating this new Hankey Bannister 40 Year Old
blend. It is an exquisite whisky that has surpassed our expectations
and is delightful to taste and to look at, thanks to the dedication of
our team in creating such striking packaging to reflect the quality
and rarity of the whisky inside each limited edition box. We are
now looking forward to this year’s allocation of 500 decanters
being released into select markets and to sharing this very special
blend with lovers of fine whisky all over the world.’

 The recommended retail price for Hankey Bannister 40 Year Old in the UK is £800.

AUCHENTOSHAN REVEALS EUROPEAN FINALISTS OF THE AUCHENTOSHAN SWITCH – Scotch Whisky News

Auchentoshan Logo

#auchentoshanswitch

AUCHENTOSHAN REVEALS EUROPEAN FINALISTS OF THE AUCHENTOSHAN SWITCH

The Transatlantic Mixology Competition Like No Other 

Lucky mixologists from across Europe have made it through to the finals of the Auchentoshan Switch cocktail competition and will battle it out against each other in London Bridge on 1st October 2013.

Auchentoshan Switch is a bartender talent search – presented by Auchentoshan® Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Over the Summer, mixologists in the UK, Sweden, Germany and across the pond in North America uploaded entries of their Auchentoshan cocktails to the Auchentoshan website with the favourites chosen to battle it out at the regional heats held in European and North American cities.

One North American winner and one European winner, chosen at the finals, will literally “switch” continents for two weeks to work at the top bars in the world – one bar in London and one in New York City. The actual Switch for the winning bartenders will take place in 2014 when the winning North American bartender will spend two weeks at the highly acclaimed Nightjar in Old Street, London, while the winning European barkeep will get to spend his or her two weeks at The Dead Rabbit in New York City.  The winners will undertake shiftwork, learning the bars’ signature drinks and house techniques and much more. And yes, there will also be some time for sightseeing as well.

The European final held at 47/49 Tanner Street, London Bridge, will put the finalists through a series of challenging mixology tasks and will be judged by an esteemed panel:

–       Rachel Barrie, Auchentoshan Master Blender

–      Edmund Weil, co-owner for host bar, Nightjar

–      Ryan Chetiyawardana (AKA Mr Lyan)cocktail genius and consultant

The European finalists in alphabetical order by last name are:

Aidan Bowie – Blythswood Square Hotel, Glasgow, UK

Johnny Brissenden – EAUdeVIE, Bournemouth, UK

Tony Comas – Haktet, Stockholm, Sweden

Matteo Corsalini – China Tang, London, UK

Neil Donachie – Popolo, Newcastle, UK

Marina Forciniti – Bristol Bar, Frankfurt, Germany

Kevin Griffin – Tigerlily, Edinburgh, UK

Matthew Hastings – Platillos, Sheffield, UK

Damiano Madeddu – Rivoli Bar at The Ritz, London, UK

Orlando Marzo – The Player, London, UK

Carsten Moller – Catwalk, Berlin, Germany

Adrian Schulz – Ciba Mato, Stuttgart, Germany

Jennifer Meenan, Brand Manager for Auchentoshan said “We have seen such a high level of skill from the bartending world in both the online entries and at the regional heats of this year’s Auchentoshan Switch. We can’t wait to see the European finalists compete for the placement in New York next year and wish then the best of luck.”

Competition judge Ryan Chetiyawardana commented “The mixologists who won in the regional heats all demonstrated a great understanding and interpretation of taste and balance of flavours, we will see some tremendous talent at the finals next month and I look forward to seeing the outcome”.

Award winning Auchentoshan Three Wood is the chosen expression for all Auchentoshan Switch entries as its complex flavours add tremendous dimension to whisky cocktails. As with all Auchentoshan whisky, Three Wood is triple distilled, which produces an immensely smooth spirit. It is matured in three different types of casks – first in North American Bourbon casks, then in Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks and finally in Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks, a wood famed for drama and darkness. This triple cask maturation produces a rich whisky with deep toffee and sherry oak influences, a touch of hazelnut with hints of cinnamon and lemon and a butterscotch sweetness that adds to the overall complexity. It is produced at the Auchentoshan Distillery which was established in 1823 and has produced triple distilled whisky since this time. It is located in the Lowland region of Scotland, on the outskirts of Glasgow and is the city’s only distillery. Its name, pronounced “ock-un-tosh-un”, means “corner of the field” which is evident to visitors as the distillery sits near farmland on the banks of the River Clyde, in the shadow of the Old Kilpatrick hills between Glasgow and Loch Lomond.

For more information, and to enter Auchentoshan Switch, please visit www.auchentoshanswitch.com.  May the cocktail making begin!

Auchentoshan – The Modern Classic

–        A traditional and authentic single malt, distilled three times and matured in the finest wood

–        A whisky produced with passion and enriched with heritage

–        Favours the classic but with a nod to the contemporary

–        It’s a combination of two worlds; old and new

–        It’s a throwback to the future

–        It’s style not fashion

–        The very best of the past with the very best of the present…

Auchentoshan Classic is available to buy from a wide range of retailers including Asda, Waitrose, and a range of on line retailers and whisky specialists with a RRP approx £27.00.

As Glasgow’s closest Distillery, Auchentoshan is truly unique as it is the only distillery to use a third still in the whisky making process. It means Auchentoshan is the only Single Malt Scotch whisky to triple distil every single drop. This third distillation takes the new spirit to 81.5% ABV (not 70% which is achieved through only distilling twice) making it the highest distillate of any Scottish distillery. The result is a light and delicate single malt of unmistakable smoothness.

Lindores Whiskyfest 2011

whiskyfest 2011

 

 

This year, we decided to organise a completely different whiskyfest 2011. 

 

When ?

 

On Saturday October 15th, 2011 we will host two “Lindores Whisky Lounge” sessions, one from 3pm to 6pm and one from 9pm to 1am.  During these sessions we open The Lindores Vaults for all registered visitors for free.  Yes, for free, you can try and taste from all the open bottles from the Lindores Whiskyvaults plus some surprise extra’s from the personal vaults of the Lindores members.

 

So how do you get your ticket ?

 

Whisky lovers can register for both sessions.  In order to secure your entrance ticket we kindly ask a fine, rare, special & tasty bottle of whisky in return for every entrance ticket.  Your donated bottle will be opened during the sessions and can be enjoyed by all registered visitors.

 

So what to do now ?

 

Fairly simple.  Just sent us an email at info@lindores.be before September 30th, 2011 including your name and full details/picture of the bottle you would like to donate that might get you your entrance ticket for both sessions.  The lindores members will announce the list of the “Lucky ” that got their ticket on October 1, 2011 on this website.

 

Are you sure to be one of the “Lucky” ?

 

No, you are not.  All depends on your whisky bottle selection.

 

What about the 2012 edition ?

 

In 2012 we return back to the normal Whiskyfest.

 

Sits Leuven
