BUFFALO TRACE DISTILLERY SPIRITS RECOGNIZED

AS “OUTSTANDING” IN

INTERNATIONAL WINE SPIRITS COMPETITION

FRANKFORT, Franklin County, Ky (July 30, 2014) – Buffalo Trace Distillery is continuing its tradition of being the world’s most award-winning Distillery with several new honors from the 2014 International Wine Spirits Competition (IWSC). All 12 Buffalo Trace spirits entered into the competition received high honors, including its new Wheatley Vodka that is available exclusively at the Buffalo Trace Distillery Visitor’s Center.

The following results were released in London, England on July 23:

Gold Outstanding Medal was awarded to:

  • Eagle Rare Single Barrel Bourbon

Gold Medals were awarded to:

  • Buffalo Trace Bourbon
  • Eagle Rare 17 Year Old Bourbon
  • Col. E. H. Taylor Small Batch Bourbon
  • Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Bourbon
  • Benchmark Bourbon

Silver Outstanding Medals were awarded to:

  • Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon
  • Col. E. H. Taylor Single Barrel Bourbon
  • Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 20 Year Old Bourbon
  • William Larue Weller 12 Year Old Bourbon

Silver Medal was awarded to:

The “Gold Outstanding” and “Silver Outstanding” medals are awarded based upon the highest scores within each of those respective categories.

“To be able to present such a variety and fare so well with each entry, it’s an honor.” Buffalo Trace Distillery’s Master Distiller, Harlen Wheatley, said. “We are proud and very humbled by these results.”

The International Wine and Spirit Competition was founded in 1969 and is the premier competition of its kind in the world. Its aim is to promote the quality and excellence of the world’s best wines, spirits and liqueurs.

All entries are first blind tasted in groups divided by variety, region and vintage as necessary, by professional expert judges (by glass, not bottle) and then the top products are sent for detailed (chemical and microbiological) analysis. This analysis is crucial as in some instances the results of this analysis may lead to marks being deducted or even outright rejection.

Invernettie

Op de site van een oude windmolen in Peterhead (Highlands) richtte Donald McLeod Co een distilleerderij op die naar de naam Invernettie luisterde. We schrijven 1834. Drie jaar later, echter, in 1837, het jaar waarin de naam Invernettie gewijzigd werd in Glenugie, werd ze omgebouwd tot een brouwerij. In 1875 werd deze overgenomen door de Scottish Highland Distillers Company, die ze renoveerden, enorm uitbreidden en terug als distilleerderij in dienst namen. Tussen 1884 en 1915, toen ze eigendom was van Simon Forbes, was de distilleerderij zeer succesvol. Van 1925 tot 1937, daarentegen, ging ze in de mottenballen.

Seagar Evans Co Ltd uit Londen heropende Glenugie en renoveerde ze opnieuw (in 1956, het jaar waarin Seager Evans in handen kwam van Long John Distillers Ltd) en best grondig. Het stoken met kolen werd vervangen door olie en de productie ging flink omhoog. In de jaren ’70 kwam de distilleerderij in handen van Whitbread Co Ltd, die zich genoodzaakt zag de distilleerderij te sluiten op 18 februari 1982, dus als één van de eerste slachtoffers van de grote whiskymalaise.

Niet veel later werd ze afgebroken. Op de terreinen van Glenugie staat nu een reusachtige fabriek van de Score-Group PCL, een bedrijf dat gespecialiseerd is in buizen, kleppen, ventielen en kranen, voornamelijk voor de Britse marine.

Fettercairn

Water voor de productie werd betrokken van de Wellington Spring, enkele kilometers verderop. De distilleerderij beschikte over één mashtun en twee stills. In 1963 werd de moutvloer omgetoverd tot warehouses, zodat Glenugie over 9 opslagruimtes beschikte.

Na de sluiting van Glenugie werd Forsyth’s onder de arm genomen voor het ontmantelen van de installatie. De spirit safe en mash tun werden verkocht aan Fettercairn.

Range

Officiële bottelingen zijn zo goed als onvindbaar geworden. Maar recentelijk kocht Chivas Brothers wel het merk op en bracht in 2010 en 2011 twee ‘officiële’ Glenugie Deoch An Doras uit.

Oudere bottelingen, zowel officiële als onafhankelijke, zijn zo goed als onbetaalbaar geworden.

The Whisky Exchange Tasting – The Magnificent Seven – Scotch Whisky News

Duncan Ross – whisky expert (and sheriff)

Sheriff Duncan

If there’s one thing TWE’s whisky guru Duncan Ross loves as much as whisky, it’s westerns. So when he got the chance to talk about both at our latest tasting at Vinopolis, it’s fair to say he jumped at the chance. The theme for the tasting was based around John Sturges’ 1960 film The Magnificent Seven, and Duncan matched each character with a whisky, as well as an icon from the industry.

First up was ‘Chico’, the youngest of the seven (played by Horst Buchholz). Duncan chose cask-master John Glaser of Compass Box to represent Chico, along with one of John’s finest releases, the much-in-demand Last Vatted Malt:

1. Compass Box, The Last Vatted Malt, 53.7%

The Last Vatted Malt

Nose: A lot going on here. Rich with candied orange notes, clean, crisp fruit and peat.

Palate: Bags of chewy, rich fruit (cherries in particular) with smoke and some tar. Water emphasises the fruitiness. Lovely richness and balance – classy stuff.

Finish: Robust, but the fruit is more than a match for the peat.

On to our next cowboy: ‘Bernardo’, played by Charles ‘Stoneface’ Bronson. Bernardo is a caring, knowledgeable soul, so Duncan chose blogger extraordinaire Serge Valentin. And the whisky? If Serge is involved, then it has to be Clynelish:

2. Clynelish 1974 23 Year Old, 59.1%

Clynelish 1974 Rare Malts

Nose: Fruit salad and fresh green apples, but plenty of underlying power. A touch vegetal.

Palate: Classic Clynelish – waxy notes to the fore, with a touch of salinity and biscuity malt. A bold, strapping malt, but not overbearing; rather poised, actually.

Finish: Juicy, clean, waxy fruit, with lovely balance. A star performer.

James Coburn was up next, who played knife-wielding sharpshooter ‘Britt’. A tricky one for Duncan to match, but he went for Glenmorangie’s Dr Bill Lumsden. We should add that Britt was meticulous to a fault, which explains how Dr Bill fits the, er, bill. For this pairing, Duncan chose a whisky that showed off Dr Bill’s top-notch cask-selection skills.

3. Glenmorangie Signet, 46%

Glenmorangie Signet

Nose: A rich swathe of cocoa, bitter chocolate, candied orange peel and orange Matchmakers. Very fruity and seductive; this would convert a few non-whisky drinkers.

Palate: Soft, rich and easy drinking. Delicious toasty oak with Christmas spices.

Finish: The bitter orange and spiciness fade beautifully.

On to the leader of the gang: ‘Chris’, played by Yul Brynner. A difficult match, certainly, but Duncan chose a highly respected figure in the world of whisky: Springbank legend Frank McHardy.

4. Springbank 21 Year Old (bottled 2005), 46%

Springbank 21yo

Nose: Plenty going on: green apple skin, peat, Dundee cake.

Palate: Phenolic and peaty, but matched perfectly by juicy stone fruit and salted nuts. Real depth of flavour – this is lip-smackingly good.

Finish: Bracing salinity lingers, as does the rich dried fruit.

We’re on to number five now, and it’s the turn of the dapper brigade. ‘Lee’, played by Robert Vaughn, was the most well-dressed of the seven, so who better to take that role than Whyte Mackay master blender Richard Paterson, and one of his finest creations:

5. Dalmore King Alexander III, 40%

Dalmore King Alexander III

Nose: Plenty of berry fruit, then the richness starts to build. Cake mix and dried fruit, intensifying over time.

Palate: Much richer on the palate than on the nose, this has bags of dark-chocolate notes and satisfying spice.

Finish: The rich dried fruit persists.

The least-known member, ‘Harry’, played by Brad Dexter, was characterised by his honesty and incessant search for the truth, which takes us neatly to our next match: fearless whisky writer Jim Murray. ‘Mr Ardbeg’, as Duncan described him, is effusive in his praise for the southern Islay distillery, so much so that he was invited to help create the much-heralded 17yo expression. Tonight, however, we tried the 1978:

6. Ardbeg 1978 (bottled 1998), 43%

Ardbeg 1978

Nose: Rich fruit, lovely briney notes, soft peat and very appealing malt/biscuit aroma.

Palate: Ageing very gracefully, with clean fruit intermingling with the soft smokiness.

Finish: Classy stuff – an elegant, characterful whisky that doesn’t need to shout to be heard.

On to the final character, the iconic ‘Vin’, played by Steve McQueen. Unlike some of the more mercenary traits of his cohorts, Vin has a worthy, honourable streak, much like the whisky icon Duncan matched him to: drinks writer Dave Broom. Dave has written favourably about some of our Elements of Islay expressions, so we ended the night with a tasting of one of our latest releases:

7. Elements of Islay Cl6, 61.2%

Elements of Islay – Cl6

Nose: a big whack of oily fruit and nuttiness, combined with a lovely twang of fino sherry and smoked fish.

Palate: Mouthfilling, bracing smokiness with some clean fruit hiding in the shadows.

Finish: Refined oiliness.

But just when we thought it was time to saddle up and head home, sheriff Duncan had an unexpected treat for us. The final memorable character in the film is the bandit ‘Calvera’, played by Eli Wallach. But who to represent him? Why, none other than TWE founder Sukhinder Singh, of course, although Duncan was quick to stress that his boss isn’t actually a gun-toting bandit – probably wise, Duncan. But the final whisky was worth waiting for – a gloriously sherried bottling from Longmorn.

Bonus whisky – Longmorn 36 Year Old (bottled 1970), 56.1%

Nose: Big, big sherry influence – dried fruits and nuts in abundance, with bitter orange and gorgeous rancio character.

Palate: Despite the high abv, this really doesn’t need water. Rich, liquid fruit cake.

Finish: Rich fruit, cinnamon and cloves to the fore.

Ladies and gentlemen, choose your weapons…

Ladies and gentlemen, choose your weapons…

A fun-filled night packed with great whiskies, and best of all, no pistols were drawn.

THE ONE JOINS WHISKY WORLD ELITE – Whisky News

The ONE 1

THE ONE JOINS WHISKY WORLD ELITE

The first ever blend of whiskies from around the British Isles, The ONE, has been classified as one of the best blended whiskies in the world less than a year after launch.

The prestigious International Wine Spirit Competition (IWSC) revealed its 2014 winners awarding the blend, produced by The Lakes Distillery, the Silver Legend in the Worldwide Whiskey category. Silver marks The ONE as ‘fine example, excellent quality’.

The annual awards are an industry-noted mark of quality and excellence and are recognised worldwide. Spirits from nearly 90 countries are entered into the competition with only those of the highest quality receiving recognition. Entries are scored out of 100 and undergo a detailed level of scrutiny including technical and chemical analysis, blind tastings and colour.

Paul Currie, founder and managing director of The Lakes Distillery, said on the win: “The IWSC sets the international benchmark for quality and we are delighted that The ONE has been included.

“The ONE, which combines the finest whiskies from Scotland, Ireland, Wales and England, is now listed alongside the wine and spirit world’s top brands, which is where we feel it deserves to be.”

The award comes weeks after The Lakes Distillery announced luxury retailer Harvey Nichols as its first UK-wide retailer of The ONE, which was launched in September 2013. Distribution deals have also been confirmed in The Netherlands, France, Belgium and The UAE, with Spain and Denmark to be announced by the end of the year and many more countries poised to come on board next year, including the USA.

Production is set to start this summer on The Lakes Distillery’s whisky, gin and vodka, while its bistro, tours and shop will open to the public by December 2014.

A select number of whisky enthusiasts around the world are invited to become part of the early stages of The Lakes Distillery story. The company has launched a Connoisseurs’ Club, where just 60 members can come to the distillery to make their own whisky, fill their own rare sherry cask, and then come to annual tasting ceremonies when they can taste their maturing whisky.

In addition, the Lakes Distillery will set aside the first 100 casks of malt whisky produced exclusively for members of its Founders’ Club. Each year for ten years, members will then receive one 70cl bottle and two tasting bottles, making up a collectible set of the distillery’s first ever production.

More information is available at http://www.lakesdistillery.com

Notes  

The ONE is also available to buy online at http://www.lakesdistillery.com/shop/

The Lakes Distillery

Close to Bassenthwaite Lake, in an area of unimaginable beauty encircled by Cumbrian fells, is the perfect home for the first-ever Lakes Distillery.

The experienced team behind the Lakes Distillery, which includes managing director Paul Currie who co founded the Arran Distillery, Master Distiller Chris Anderson, ex Dewars with over 30 years’ experience, and Alan Rutherford a former Production Director of Diageo, are renovating the historic buildings of an old Victorian Model Farm next to the famous river Derwent and close to Bassenthwaite Lake, with the aim to produce a new world-class single malt whisky.

The water from the famous River Derwent, with its source high up in the fells, a team steeped in whisky experience, and perfect conditions for distilling are set to create a very special malt.

The Lakes Distillery will open to the public in late 2014. The Lakes single malt will begin production this summer, and its blended whisky from the British Isles, called The ONE, is available to buy now.

The ONE Whisky

The ONE is the first British blended whisky ever to be produced.  As opposed to blends made only of scotch whiskies, The ONE has been carefully created from whiskies from around the British Isles, leading to a very unique whisky. This is very much an artisan blend – the team in Cumbria has enormous experience in making the very finest whiskies, and their expertise has put together this outstanding blend, which has a lightly peated character.

Blended whiskies are made up of grain and malt whiskies, and it is the quantity of malt whisky in the blend that dictates the quality – so the more malt whisky in the blend, the better the quality. The ONE has a very high malt content and its quality is very much in line with single malt whiskies.

The Connoisseurs’ Club 

The company has launched a  Connoisseurs’ Club, offering the opportunity for just 60 members to own their own very rare cask of The Lakes Malt.

Each cask is estimated to contain more than 100 bottles and members can be there on that historic first day to make the whisky themselves, fill their own Connoisseur’s Cask and see it stored in the distillery warehouse. The Connoisseurs’ Club limited membership costs £12,000, which includes the unique signature cask, exclusive annual events, accommodation at the nearby 4-star Trout Hotel, delivery, all duty and VAT. It’s estimated if kept, the cask will be worth over £20,000 in years to come. 

The Founders’ Club

The first ever distillery in the beautiful Lake District, opening later this year, is setting aside the first ever 100 casks of malt whisky produced for members of its Founders’ Club.

Each year for ten years, members will receive one 70cl bottle plus two tasting miniatures of the maturing malt, making up a collectible set of the distillery’s first ever production, all with unique, limited edition labels. These casks will not be available for the general public and are uniquely reserved for members.

Founders’ Club membership costs just £595, with an expected value of over £1,400 over the ten years period. Delivery of the first bottle will be in 2015.

Ardbeg 1972 (Douglas Laing OMC)

This is not the legendary Ardbeg 1972 ‘Ardbeggeddon’ for the Plowed society, but a similar release by Douglas Laing in their Old Malt Cask series, bottled a couple of months earlier in August 2001. It was finished in a sherry cask for six months before being bottled.


Ardbeg 1972/2001 29yo DL OMCArdbeg 1972/2001 29yo DL OMCArdbeg 29 yo 1972 (50%, Douglas Laing OMC 2001, sherry finish, 432 btl.)

Nose: marvellous, a great mix of gentle old peat, spearmint, asphalt and a Brora-esk farminess (stables) in the background, although this fades away. Constantly balancing between a fat (vanilla) creaminess and maritime sharpness. Tarry ropes and sweet seaweed. Smoked bacon. Some diesel. Very rich and classy, and certainly lifted by the sherry notes. Mouth: a marriage of peat and sweet sherry again. Honey, some brown sugar and toast. Apples again. Then back to seaweed and saltwater. Hints of coal tar soap and sweet rubber. Candied liquorice. Lime and lemon candy, slowly fading to sugared grapefruit juice. Very subtle oak. Finish: very long, smoky and slowly drying.

Wonderful whisky, like most Ardbeg 1972’s in fact. I swallowed the last drop more than half an hour ago and I’m still vividly enjoying the aftertaste. In stock at The Whisky Exchange, around € 1500.

Score: 94/100
