🇧🇷🥃🇬🇧 By now you must have figured out I’m drinking a lot. Well, my job is the only one that I can be a workaholic and that still means a good thing 😎. Needless to say I have a lot of whiskys lining up to be reviewed and posted, and not much energy left after a shift to do so 😁. For a long time I’ve been considering what to post for a #TBT and I finally decided to talk about the wonderful #Kilchoman#RedWineCask . This whisky is so amazing and delicious that in my blissful sippings I completely forgot to take a picture of the bottle! 😂. Therefore, I hope the chaps at @kilchomansinglemalt don’t mind me using theirs to illustrate this post. 7.000 bottles were released containing 50% ABV whisky matured for 5 years in Douro Valley red wine casks. This is not a finished whisky, but completely matured in that wine cask. To the nose, that beautiful Islay peat, red fruits, peated grains, nuts and a good cheese. To the palate there’s grains, an ashy and peaty taste, red berry’s and again, moldy cheese. It actually makes you think you’re at a 🍷 and 🧀 festival! The finish is long, smoky, herbal and very warm. Once again I bow to Kilchoman whisky. Insanely tasty, extremely complex, 100% sold out unfortunately 😱. If you ser a bottle, grab it!!! #Slainte my friends!
Ardmore je základní složkou blendu Teacher's. Jako single malt je lahvována ve verzi Legacy (80 % peated, 20 % unpeated), Tradition (duty free), Triple Wood (bourbon barrels + quarter casks + sherry puncheons), 12 yo (port finish) a právě tato 20 yo (first a second fill bourbon). Myslím, že skvělý přírůstek do rodiny. Vanilková jemná vůně, v chuti kořenitý "dřevokouříček". #ardmore#whisky#ardmore20#chocolate#glencairn#beamsuntory#highland#cokolada
