Glen Moray 28 Years (Boutique-y Whisky)

A new Glen Moray 28 Year Old from That Boutique-y Whisky Company.

There’s a red / pink hue to this, which might indicate wine influence of some kind, or maybe a recharred cask?

 

 

Glen Moray 28 Years TBWCGlen Moray 28 Years TBWCGlen Moray 28 yo (47,5%, The Boutique-y Whisky Co 2018, Batch #3, 143 btl.)

Nose: very minty start, with pencil shavings and worn leather, in a rather bourbony way. Hints of red berry pastries and candy. Red apples. Coconut and toffee. Touches of star anise. Burnt orange cake. Mouth: the red berries are back (cranberry juice, hints of raspberry) with a sour and indeed slightly winey side. Rhubarb, cinnamon, violet candy and some pears. Coconut again, old sour wood. Developing a slightly greenish, bitter side towards the end. Finish: woody notes, cinnamon and oranges.

Really interesting, this one, a mix of bourbon and Scotch, with fragrant wood and candied notes. We know Glen Moray likes to experiment, I’d love to find out how they treated this cask. Available from Master of Malt but the price is rather funny.

Score: 83/100

Singleton of Glendullan Select – Game of Thrones ‘House Tully’

Macallan Enigma

Tasting NotesGeplaatst door Mark Dermul do, maart 07, 2019 07:36:42

Distilleerderij:
Macallan
Regio: Schotland
(Speyside)
Fles: Macallan Enigma Quest Collection, OB 2017, 1st fill European sherry butts
Spanish hogsheads, travel retail
Kleur: brons
ABV: 44.9%

Eik
Gedreven

Deze Enigma – wat zoveel betekent als mysterie – maakt deel
uit van de Quest Collection, exclusief voor reizigers. De volledige reeks
bestaat uit de Quest, Lumina, Terra en deze Enigma. Hij rijpte op Europese first
fill sherryvaten. Het komt niet vaak voor dat je Macallan proeft die op vaten
van slechts 1 bron rijpte, wat hier het geval is: Toneleria Tevasa, een
kuiperij in het Spaanse Jerez, gespecialiseerd in ‘seasoned’ (dus
geprepareerde) vaten voor de Schotse whisky-industrie. Het is mijn 40e
ontmoeting met deze Speysider.

Stevige neus met geel en rood fruit (denk abrikozen, mango,
framboos) met amandelpasta, hazelnoten en kandijsuiker. Het hout – first fill,
weet u nog? – drukt wel zijn stempel met flink wat houtkrullen en kruidigheid
met een drogend element. Denk gember, nootmuskaat, menthol. Een druppeltje
rancio en iets van rosbief. Ik moet bekennen: dit vind ik best lekker.

Op smaak krijg ik eerst donker fruit (dadels, rozijnen,
gekonfijte abrikoos) alvorens de eik zijn stempel drukt. Maar eens dat gebeurt
is het er niet naast: drogend, pikant op kruidnagel, nootmuskaat, chili peper
en een karrenvracht aan kaneel. Dat gezegd zijnde: prima in balans en een mooi
mondgevoel.

De afdronk is middellang met nog meer hout, zonder te
storen.

Deze is oak driven
zoals dat heet. Maar het werkt, hoor. Dit staat me erg aan. De prijs – zo’n 250
EUR – iets minder. Maar je krijgt er wel een mooie doos bij (sarcasm, anyone?).

86/100

Whisky Wednesday – Game of Thrones Clynelish 51.2% – Scotch Whisky News

PHIL

https://youtu.be/70-qWCaHp9M

Clynelish is a is a name that whisky enthusiasts love! It’s prominent waxy and floral features are some of the finest found in Scotch as well as whiskies form around the world.

This expression is part of the GoT Releases, NAS with a rather high ABV of 51.2% – Guessing anywhere from 8/10 years old with those classic Clynelish elements, not my favourite of the range but it’s affordable and a must have for any Clynelish fan! Cheers.
