    Last nights whisky

    20220305_224357.jpg 20220305_224630.jpg

    so this is another Sherry Cask Matured Peated whisky this time from Islay ( This is a very new distillery as it was only founded in 2005 so this is some of its very early production also it one of only 7 distillery’s to have its own floor maltings plus it’s very different from the previous one the level of peating is about the same but this one tastes & smells much more Smokey.

    Looks very interesting!
    Checked their website and I think that's the one I'd've chosen as well.

    Let's see when this year's batch comes out and my financials will permit me to endulge... *ponders*

    It should be out soon & if last years edition is anything to go by it should be around 10 years in a Sherry Cask.
    I have 1 more bottle of the 2013 edition & one of the 2015 edition.

    So this weekends whisky was another of my self blending experiments

    First up was a measure of the Benromach
    52DFD748-4BD8-495E-A912-F62BE1F5B639.jpeg

    Then a equal measure of the Kilchoman
    C57F4FB7-DAC0-46C4-A992-2584714E46A5.jpeg

    so we end up with a absolutely Peated Sherry monster of a dram & it actually didn’t turn out to bad as the sweater Benromach helped to smooth out the younger & more intense Kilchoman ( Now personal I liked the Kilchoman’s full in peat intensity but it’s certainly a acquired taste &the Benromac is certainly an easier whisky to be introduced to a peaty style)

    Looks interesting... but... is it a whiskey or a bourbon? ;)

    Sounds a bit crooked to me... :D
    --- Double Post Merged, May 3, 2022, Original Post Date: May 3, 2022 ---
    To me Bourbon is not Whiskey!
    Mostly because the spirit is primarily made from corn.

    You can put Vodka in a barrel and let it mature on Oak for twenty years, that doesn't make it Whiskey! ;)

    So this weekend’s wine was a rather nice German Pinot Nour.
    54F1F2AC-7938-4EB1-8BA9-5C06136D541C.jpeg
    At about 4 1/2 years it’s probably at it’s peak but then it probably just as good as most entry level Burgundies ( & given the way those prices are going a LOT more affordable ).

    I don't know if it's gotten a bad rep in recent times, but it's still one of my favorite light, summer beers! :cool:

    This weekend wine is a lovely Provenance Rose with a rather famous Ex Hollywood Couple
    0FB07CB9-3E5A-44D3-AFD4-87E689BFC504.jpeg

    At 3 years old is still got a lovely freshness to it proving that a top quality Rose can age & doesn’t have to be drunk straight away. Oh & I’m enjoying this while watch the Monaco GP Qualifying :)
