An interesting new Japanese product, #Yamazakura Blended Whisky from Sasanokawa Shuzo, a company mostly known for their sake. This is made from four malt whiskies and grain whisky. ⠀
It's really nice to see Glendalough Irish whiskey doing the rounds in Hong Kong! The 13 gives you bountiful sweetness with caramel and vanilla but there's a lovely spice there too. There Single Grain is also worth a try! 🤗
WHISTLEPIG OLD WORLD 12 YEAR OLD RYE 🇺🇸
Straight Rye Whiskey
86 Proof / 43.0% ABV
WhistlePig The Old World Series: Straight Rye Whiskey Marriage begins as a 12 year old, 95% rye whiskey distilled at MGP Distillery in Lawrenceburg Indiana. Once it reaches its new home at the WhistlePig Distillery in Vermont, Pickerell finishes the whiskey for three-to-six weeks in barrels that previously contained Madeira, Sauternes and Port.
Madeira is a fortified wine produced since the 17th century on the Portuguese islands of Madeira. WhistlePig The Old World Series: Madeira Finish Rye Whiskey was the first American rye whiskey to ever be finished in such casks.
Sauternes is a famous, sweet white wine produced in the French region of Bordeaux. The region’s unique microclimate, which consists of thick morning fog and hot, dry afternoons, causes a “noble rot” to grow on the grapes, imparting its signature flavor unto the wine.
Port, another fortified Portuguese wine, is produced in the Douro Valley, in Portugal’s northern provinces. Similar to brandy, port is rich, sweet and known for its robust flavor.
Once the rye has matured in its respective cask, the barrels are married together, giving the whiskey a breathtaking aroma filled with marzipan, ripe berries and salted caramel. The palate expands with flavors of dark chocolate, taffy, fruitcake and sugar cereal before leading to a long, dry finish which lingers on the tongue.

Congratulations to our 4 "Visit the GlenWyvis Stills" competition winners, who will be touring Forsyths at Rothes to view Glen & Wyvis on 12th June, before all the distilling equipment arrives in July!
The computer 3D pictures are exciting but seeing the real thing getting close to completion is amazing!
Almost all (even newly built) Scottish distilleries have a pagoda roof, but only a handful have a working kiln underneath. It's rare to see peat smoke coming out, in this case at #Balvenie in #Speyside .
