GLENDRONACH 1995 CS
솔찍히 얼마 안남았는데, 냉정하게 말해서,
너무 맛있다. 😍
누가 말했던가, 지금 딱 먹기 좋은 정도로 남았을때,
충분한 에어링이 주는 이 감동은 전혀 다른술처럼 느껴지게 한다.
기다리는 자에게 복이 있나니, #페드로히메네즈 쉐리 그 자체 👍

I'm back!! 😂 so for a while now I stopped posting for no specific reason. I just haven't made it a priority recently. Good news is since I've been away I've acquired some new goodies I'll be sharing in the coming days/weeks 🙌 So to kick us off... the ever dependable @theglenlivet 12 Year Old. Bottled at 43% ABV. Now interestingly enough, I'll rarely drink it alone; that is without having another whisky after. Reason being is I use this whisky as a way to kick start my palate for what is to come; call it a starter if you will 😂 I mean no discredit to it though, it makes for a good dram in it's own right 👌
Subtle, fresh floral notes (a crispy rainy day in spring comes to mind) with a mildly sweet characteristic to it, but nothing untoward or offensive and finishes out well balanced. I've found when I add a splash water, the finish is slightly bitter, but add some more or some ice and it'll disappear. As stated before, there's nothing in here that will blow your socks off and so makes for a great dram for people who are new to whisky. Also I suppose a nostalgic one too for those who like to remember where it all started 😃
Slainte friends! ✌
If I could describe Bunnahabhain 18 with one phrase then it would be 'spice of life'. It is full of gentle spices yet beautifully balanced.
On the nose there is pepper and cinnamon with the slightest hint of honey.
The palate has strong sherry influence, a lot of spices with cardamon and cloves coming to mind with oak coming through as well.
The finish has oak, hint of smoke and a very gentle sweetness which disappears as quickly as it comes.
Overall, this is a spectacular dram that I will definitely be going back to. If you are new to whiskies its probably not for you but once you get better acquainted with the golden nectar it is one of the best drams you could have!
The Balvenie Tasting – My Bottle Shop .
How not to do a Whisky Tasting event!!! New Rule: when it comes to holding a Masterclass/Tasting event: Just do it in a bar already!!! Right off the bat I have to say The Balvenie (@TheBalvenie) Ambassador: Ross did an outstanding job, in less than ideal conditions. He was very knowledgable, and gave a great presentation, in spite of some rude arsehole that turned up late, talked over the top of him and asked some total Whisky Wanker questions/statements like “I don’t really like Balvenie, but which of these are Cask Strength and what’s the ABV of each”...to paraphrase just how annoyingly obnoxious this arsehole was. If you’re ever late to a tasting, apologise and sit the fuck down quickly, quietly, and keep your fucking mouth shut!!! I really didn’t understand the venue? My Bottle Shop (@MyBottleshop) looks like an Alcohol Wholesaler? A terrible place to hold a tasting event. I remember on the way to their “in the middle of nowhere” location, walking past Batch Brewing Co (@batchbrewingcompany) and thinking what a gorgeously warm place it was. And later thinking, why the hell didn’t they contact Batch and do a deal to use their beautiful joint to do the Whisky Tasting? Or anywhere that’s not so aesthetically cold. There was no real welcome on arrival, just stand around and wait for the event to kind of start. I can’t believe I paid $70 for a ticket, that’s the last time I ever go to a Whisky Tasting event that’s not in a bar (with the exception of @smws_aus). I think this picture sums up my frustration with this event perfectly...what’s wrong with it? Why is the 30YO the only fucking bottle not fucking open at a tasting event? If you’re not going to open the fucking thing, then don’t fucking display it!!! Ross pointed out that it wasn’t his decision and it wasn’t his bottle to open unfortunately. Apart from the terrible location, Scotch Tease, Paying money for such a shitty event, The Balvenie part of the night was epic!
I run into this beauty not to long ago and stopped to say hello. On creating aesthetic bottle designs Macallan really masters how to make the whisky look exclusive. #macallan
Why does some whisky brands manage to sell similar aged bottles 2-10x higher?
I wrote the answer in the playbook and the short answer its about whisky marketing. For my detailed answer read the "cool whisky bottling names and whisky marketing 101" section in the whisky playbook 😊
@lastritesbrewing - Tom's Dirty Garage SMaSH Pale Ale 🍻 This is Last Rites' first canned small batch release, and it's fresh off the brew line, canned only today! Right time and place landed me first 4 pack out the door! 👊 It's a single malt (Vienna) and single hop (Denali) Pale Ale. Pours beautiful bright deep golden, with a very healthy thick fine white head, has excellent retention and good lacing. Aroma is broad. Strong tropical notes, peach and pineapple, also with softer citrus in mandarin, there's some light fresh pine needles, a little grassy, and some biscuit malt aromas also. On the palate the citrus is more pronounced and a bit sharper. Still mandarin, but also tangerine and even some hints of grapefruit. Tropical tones hide behind the sharp citrus, but holds their own well. Also nice dose of fresh pine. The malt body is very nice. Solid yet light, flavours of biscuit and crusty bread. To finish a nice mild to moderate bitterness that lingers a little. It probably sounds like there's a lot going on, because there is, and that's using just one hop variety and one malt variety. But all the flavours come together so beautifully, and leave one really well-balanced and brilliant beer! SMaSHed it fellas!! Well done 👏 Malt: Vienna. Hop: Denali. ABV 5.0% IBU 35-40? 👍🍺😊 #hops#hophead#craftbeer#thecraftdispensary#paleale#lastritesbrewing#tomsdirtygarage#singlemalt#singlehop#smashpaleale
