Glenfiddich Special Reserve Pure Malt 1 Litre

No way would I say that about the dumbed-down modern Laphroaig, and I will argue strongly against anyone who suggests that the years have damaged my olfactory and gustatory abilities. Glenfiddich is a , this means the whisky was distilled at a single distillery using a pot still distillation process and must be made from a mash of malted barley. Interestingly enough, the biggest difference I noticed was in the finish. It might be the case that you just dont like Islay malts. What can you smell from the 6 inch distance? After purchasing the Glenfiddich 12 I did a bit of reading and realized I fell pray to the marketing engine of the most famous single malt scotch whisky. Glass share a bottle of 30-year-old Glenfiddich.

They almost always have a touch of sherry, sometimes they have a lot. Let it turn gently around your mouth. The equipment is bought from Mrs. I saw it at a duty-free shop with not much else in the way of selection and found the price was right when I bought it. I've read that some of the older aged Glenfiddichs are quite nice also but I haven't tasted any of them. I have notes of all my whiskies and have 47 different single malts in my collection. However, when the titular vicar arrives, she spots the hidden bottle much to David's dismay.

I know I've enjoyed whiskies using all sorts of glasses. I assume the first number under the cap is related to the distillery while the second two numbers are more related to commerce codes and bottling dates. So I was suprised at how nice the Glenfiddich Solera Reserve was when I tasted it. Speyside whiskies tend to be sweeter and slightly lighter in body than their counterparts from the or , and are considered to be some of the finest in the world. Seriously, i do see the water drops floating on the top of my dram. So it puts it pre 1990.

How Can I Find Out How Old This Bottle Of Scotch Whisky Is? Glenfiddich Pur...

This is really useful, especially when considering some heavy hitters like Ardbeg 10yo, Lagavulin 16yo, Springbank 12yo or 21yo etc. Are there two Lagavulin distilleries, one in Port Ellen and another in White Horse? There's no real scientific thruth in whisky, I think. Once there, I must've spent a good 15 minutes looking over the bottles and consulting my cheat sheet. As a matter of fact, I found the likes of Oban, Dalwhinnie and Glenkinchie distinctly boring at the time they were first offered to me as my palate wasn't sophisticated enough to pick out the nuance and subtleties of these kinder, gentler drams. Some people like them from scratch, but for others it takes a while to get used to the Islay's.

I've done a little research and I'm thinking my second bottle should be an Ardbeg 10 yo. . It's really my first bottle of wisky I purchased for the peasure of tasting it, and probably also the first single-malt. It's a black cap version. I hope your next tasting session goes similarly to mine.

Glenfiddich — Old and Rare Whisky

Please, for the children… Why not switch to a nice new browser like: , or. . In my not so humble opinion, Glenfiddich and Arbeg are night and day. Sadly its now an old dog, senile and a bit dribbly - there are stains on its bean bag and it smells weird. Glenfiddich pure malt, single malt unblended.

Glenfiddich — Old and Rare Whisky

We think a whisky that has been bought in, say 1995, can't have been bottled in 1996 ;-. In my not so humble opinion, Glenfiddich and Arbeg are night and day. Aberlour is another Speyside but a little more spice and autumn fruits. With big well known whiskies they make every effort to produce a consistent product. You could start in the Lowlands. I saw it at a duty-free shop with not much else in the way of selection and found the price was right when I bought it. On balance, the 15-year whisky has performed the best, receiving three double-gold medals in four years at the 2007—2010 San Francisco competitions and a score of 91 with the Beverage Testing Institute.

Well that's the best explanation I can offer, first dram I despised it, then was totally enraptured by the second. With the smaller distilleries and the independent bottlers you have rare, unrepeatable versions. I wish there was a resource to look up these kind of numbers and date a bottle. If all else fails, you can, of course, just. Laphroaig, when I eventually got to taste it, was just one more member of the family.

Tell us again about your ambivalence towards Laphroaig regards Esmond - in 11 hours I will be in Scotland --------------------------------------------------------------------- And the thread drifted off as they do. Dont shove your nose in the glass or you will numb your nosebuds by the alcohol. . For a long time I concentrated much more on taste than nose. Since then I've bought several replacement bottles of Laphroaig 10, as well as Lagavulin 16, Lagavulin Distillers Edition, Ardbeg 10, Bowmore Dusk, Bowmore 12. All stills are handmade and Glenfiddich employs a dedicated team of craftsmen and to maintain them. The 12, 15, 18, and 21-year offerings have all rated well in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and the Beverage Testing Institutes' reviews.

Youth is a friend to heavily peated whiskies, helping them have their most intense blast of phenolic peat. What do you taste now? I hope it'll be a long, memorable journey! Conversely, when the market is down, you'll find distillers using older whiskies in their standard products. I'm thinking of saving the Ardbeg for later - either a special occasion or for when I have enough experience to properly appreciate it. Think of the actuall things you taste. Then smell it from a six inch distance.
