It's the liquid inside the bottle that truly matters.

But before you pour it has to grab your attention.

I am a big fan of the labels @archiveswhisky designed for their bottles. The font combined with the botanical vintage fish is just gorgeous in all its simplicity! Luckily I know they also bottle some fantastic and unique whisky. This Ardmore was matured in an ex-Laphroaig barrel! So not only does the bottle look good, it should be an interesting experience.

Nose:
Starts of fruity. Mostly white fruit with granny smith apples and pear. There is some peat which shows itself as minerals. Wet stones, sand and play doh clay. Followed by baked apples and grilled pears. Grass with wildflowers and a hint of char.
Adding some water makes the peat drift away and add more sour notes. Citric fruit with lemon and grapefruit. Are there some Laphroaig medicinal / bandaids notes appearing? Lemon throat candy! In the back there are some sneaky vanilla notes.

Palate:
Thick oily mouthfeel. Quite hot on arrival, chili peppers which is not surprising considering the ABV. Charred lemon. Toasted bread with sour jam topping. Black pepper and bitter oak notes at the back end. Very interesting transition from the nose!
Water settles down the whisky while still retaining a great mouthfeel. Vanilla. More ash and cereal notes. Burnt toast with butter and sugar sprinkled on top of it. Sweetness makes a return with some water!

Finish:
A bitter and dry finish. Ash with lemon hard candy. No sweetness here. Grassy. Charred wood. It gives me a mental image of a sandy beach with lemon water ice cream.
Some water unlocks more ash, charred wood and wet stones. The finish is shorter, but still lingers for quite a while.

Usually my favourite part is nosing whisky, you have all the time in the world to dissect and analyse the different flavours. But the palate is the star of the show with this whisky. It tastes very spirit driven and matured in a tired old barrel, which worked out well here. I didn't find much Laphroaig character, but this whisky did have some nice twists and turns. Not only a good bottle to look at, but there is also good whisky inside for sure!

🥃 CLEAR YOUR CALENDAR 🥃 ⁠

Join us tomorrow at 5pm where we will be serving @laphroaig 27 for our Breakeven Bottle Night.⁠


The whisky was aged for 27 years and then transferred into refill hogsheads before being double-matured in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels and refill quarter casks. ⁠

That’s nearly three decades (count ’em) of maturation. ⁠

Ardbeg 26 yo 1993 The Islay Giants Quaich Bar 49%

This is classic maritime Ardbeg, pre LVMH, bracing and evocative. Its nose is joyfully seaswept with a crystal saline clarity, closely followed by sweet smoke from the shore, where someone’s grilling asparagus. Of course there’s peat but again it’s of the rooty sort, redolent of black oil and deep earth. Despite leaning towards svelteness, a host of nuances give it translucent depth: Elemi, cold ash, lit tobacco, hot metal and a cocktail of lemon rind, castor oil, crushed seaweed, gritty white granite chips and juniper. This is the very epitome of a coastal Ardbeg, my preferred sort of Ardbeg, with a precision and freshness undiminished by age. 91 pts

Bowmore 1989 / 2011 Malts of Scotland #11004 51.2%
I know what everyone is thinking, no its not one of the perfumed ones. Thankfully the nose is first met by fresh lit smoke and fuel at the point of ignition. It’s also clear its not one of the clean ones. Muddy brown seawater with a layer of oil, sticky rubber and a lump of coal follows. Some oily aspects, burnt rye toast, minerals, stripped bark and a drop of wintergreen oil loll about, making this an interesting Bowmore, but one without any excitement or compelling focus. The ghost of a vague floralcy reminiscent of old potpourri does haunt its corners, and its really rather best to avoid it and move on. 86 pts

Ich hab ehrlich gesagt überhaupt keine Ahnung was ich mir da angelacht habe 😄

Glendronach also. Oft gesehen, oft gehört. Aber nie im Glas gehabt. Steht die Brennerei nicht unter der Leitung von Billy Walker?! 🤔 Wie auch immer.
Schlecht kann er ja nicht sein.
Bei Gelegenheit wird er geöffnet.
Was macht Glendronach für euch aus? Welcher ist euer Favorit und warum?
Berichtet gern 😊
Slàinte 🥃

To be honest, I have no idea what I was bought 😄 So Glendronach. Often seen, often heard. But never had it in my glass. Isn't the distillery run by Billy Walker ?! 🤔 Anyway. It can't be bad. It will be opened when the opportunity arises. What is Glendronach like for you? Which is your favorite and why? Please tell us 😊 Slàinte 🥃

You rarely come across a Benromach of this age, so this is quite a special one!

And this 40-year-old single malt has matured in Oloroso sherry casks and bottled at a strength of 57.1% ABV. Ginger, Spanish Orange, Beeswax, cinnamon and much more to enjoy!

1633) Ardneg, Blaaack, The Ultimate, Committee 20th Anniversary Limited Edition, Ardbeg Day 2020

100% matured in a New Zealand's Pinot Noir wine cask, but totally different if to compared to the most of Bruichladdich wine cask releases, this Blaaack offering a very different spectrum of flavours, but equally intriguing and that's what make the whiskies great!

N- Quintessential seashore oriented, sweet maple wood charred thick bbq gravy and smokes small red berries, moving on to softer notes of chocolate, mud and umami-ed mineralic peats. Rich with layers of intriguing nice smelling floral in the middle, before savoury pork streaky and salted sunflower seed emerged...both favorite Chinese snacks that marks that CNY is coming soon! (91/22)

P- The restrained sweetness amplifying the elegant woodiness, packed with raw spices, bitter scents of driftwood and dry leather. Salty peat prevailed with rounded spiciness that skim thru the palate effortlessly, hints of petro and oily on retrohale. (91/22)

F- Medium long, ginger and rye spicy mouthfeel, well salted chewy peat with drying tart citrus peel and spicy nuttiness. (90/22)

B/B- 91/22 Fine balance of sweet and salt.

The Indian Amrut Distilleries, which exists since 1948, launched its first single malt in 2004.

and now there is this first triple-distilled malt, which is bottled at a strength of 50% ABV. Only 5,400 bottles worldwide. Worth trying!

BREAKEVEN BOTTLE NIGHT 🥃 ⁠

Join us on Nov 5 at 5pm where we will be serving @laphroaig 27.

This fall 2017 limited edition release from Laphroaig first matured in refill hogsheads. Then, some whisky spent time in refill quarter casks while the remainder aged in first-fill bourbon barrels. ⁠

Nose: has ripe, pulpy tropical fruit flan, topped with finely chopped toasted macadamia nuts and smothered with vanilla cream. ⁠

Flavour: notes of smoke are tempered by limes and nectarines, giving way to sea salt and mild chilli⁠.

Finish: long and dry, with notes of tobacco tin, spicy oak, some citrus and a touch of leather.⁠

This is one of the bottlings from the Mac Talla range, the Morrison family's special Islay series.

Highland Park 20 yo 1962 Blackadder #2991 /2 43%
Old nose, but its evident its seen better days.

It’s a familiar sort of whisky yet a shade different enough to be instructive. So, we get OBE, old copper machines, wafts of smoke, and browning oranges. The barest whisper of staleness detracts from the whole though thankfully the phenols remain potent. Charcoal, sackcloth and rubbed down wood. To its credit, it displays the best trait of old peated whisky: Phenolic in many tiny ways. Unlit tobacco, lamp oil, dirt and a lick of iodized salt. 88 pts

Highland Park 27 yo 1968 Hard Brothers 43%
Lovely lovely nose. Old leather with a touch of rancio, roasted walnuts and fig paste with a slight overripe edge. The sherry here is dark haired and lascivious, and unmarred by overpowering oak. Highland Park is here, though veiled with bitter cocoa and unsweetened cola; But through these gossamer charms, phenolic glints of sooty coal, ash, mastic, powdered bark and medicated oil shine like the burn of distant stars. 92 pts

1632) Kilchoman, 2007/2020, 13YO, #69 /2007, Private Cask Release - Max & Julia


N- Warm oak sweetness derived from the cask with natural sea sprays. Sphere with coastal-y shell and smokes fish notes over burnt leaf and turf. Also, reminded me fully printed inky paper. (88/22)

P- Fine weight with delicate waxy fruits of peach, mineralic rusty nails and coastal-y sweet smokiness. (87/21)

F- Medium long, tasty ripe fruits under the smoky tent. Straight forward and balance with roundness over the phenolic framework. (87/21)

B/B- 89/22
