I'm a bit Islay whisky aficionado myself (Laphroaig @home!) and definitely a fan of Caol Ila - also quite partial to the odd snifter of Tokaji - so basically a win win all round!:beer:

Have you tried this? http://www.masterofmalt.com/whiskies/black-bottle-whisky/

"Black Bottle is a blended Scotch featuring a proportion of whisky from almost every distillery on Islay, a marked blend with plenty of character."

I was given a bottle a little while back and haven't found an occasion to open it yet, looking forward to it though.

It's weird. Any time I try and drink whiskey (scotch or bourbon varieties) neat, all I can taste is a smell (cause taste is 2/3 smell) that I can only describe as akin to methylated spirits!

Now imagine me going to Japan for my ex's cousin's wedding to a Japanese girl. Imagine me sitting down at a table with both fathers and the Japanese father pulling out a bottle of 12 year old suntori scotch! Pouring it over a little ice and passing me half a glass. Imagine me trying not to grimace as I swallowed the first mouthful.

Fortunately, the metho effect seems to dissipate somewhat after a few sips, so it got better. Though not a lot. And I had to sit through about a glass and a half all up of neat scotch. An experience I will never forget! :beer:

Wow...

well, it's very different. It is subtly peaty, smoky and earthy, it's very dark. Really rich and sweet. You can really taste the Tokaji. I love it. I've had a glenmorangie before that was aged in Sauternes wood and that was much lighter and more subtle. This kind of smashes you in the face with Tokaji, and the whisky is a bit more in the background. Certainly won't be to everyones taste!

Only 492 bottles... you probably should get one if you want one!

Nills Lagerbaak
06-08-2010, 07:36:31
Yes indeed, you can have a sample each year to determine when to bottle it, and you don't have to bottle it all in one go.
I'm sure part of the reason really old whisky is so expensive is because most of it has evaporated!

I wonder if this unusual barrel ageing thing was a mid-90s fad, which will fade as we get further along or whether we are going to see more and more unusual barrelings.

I hope it's a continuing trend.

Lazarus and the Gimp
25-08-2010, 09:08:41
I doubt it'll fade. It's showing sustained popularity.

The one drawback is that the smaller distillers which have always used 100% sherry barrel-aging (like Glenfarclas) are really struggling to source barrels and could get priced out of the market by the big guys.

Funko
25-08-2010, 09:20:38
Yeah, but there could be a 10/15 year gap before they bring it back, depending on whether they continued making them throughout the 90s/00s.

Funko
25-08-2010, 09:22:24
Changes to Sherry laws that means it has to be aged in/around Jerez, where traditionally a lot of it was aged in the UK have had major implication for availability and price of sherry casks.

Casks just don't age out of Solera systems very fast. Unlike Bourbon where they have to use new oak every time (bloody planet raping Americans).

It is all American oak, not even Canadian, so the rest of the world is safe.
Speaking of planet-raping, look to our friends to the north. Their mining comglobs are the most rapacious in the world, except for the Chinese, of course.
BTW, the bourbon barrels are all recycled many times. Some US micro-brews use them to condition their ales. :beer:

Funko
27-08-2010, 08:02:31
A lot of scotch is matured in bourbon casks now though. Because there are so many of them. You can't re-use bourbon barrels for bourbon again, so yeah, recycled in other industries.

I went to a whisky festival once and all the major brands were there. We did two rounds around the floor, one for bourbon matured whiskys, and one for sherry matured whiskys.

Probably the only disappointing thing so far about Montana is the price of booze. I used to get 1.75 liter bottles of JW Red for $31. Here it is $50 or a little more for the same thing. Single malt selections are also poor, and correspondingly more expensive. Lord knows what that 70 year old bottle would cost here!

Can you order by mail?

70 year old glenlivet single malt.

Distilled during WWII!

Amazing. Shame it's £13,000 a bottle. Ouch.

Wasn't there an old story about some village on a remote island in Scotland hiding away life times supplies of whisky in WW2? Supposedly some ship got torpedoed and the captain beached her rather then have it totally sink so these islanders raided the wreck and found it full of crates of whisky. The government wanted to recover the cargo (this being WW2 and rationing being in place) so supposedly the villagers took to burying crates of whisky all over the island so they could keep the precious liquor.

Supposedly there are still crates of this 70 year old whiskey found as someone buried it and then later couldn't find it again.

Thing is, unlike wine, whisky stops ageing once it's bottled. So it won't have matured unless it was buried in casks.

Found a bottle of this in duty free for £25. Absolutely delicious dram, and at that price excellent value so anyone going flying, look out for this:

I bought 1 as a present and wanted to buy some more but couldn't carry them. Should have used the pick up on return service. D'oh!

It's one of the nicest whiskies I've had. lovely dark fruit/chocolate taste but a light refreshing finish. Reminds me of a summer pudding

I always walk by Duty Free. Although I am sure it is much much cheaper than Sweden.

Go to Latvia. Buy liquor/beer. Take ferry boat back to Sweden.

This one, now available at Waitrose direct for £24 each. Unfortunately you have to buy a case...

You just need to sell the others. :)

thought you might, but then I'd feel bad for not giving it to you as a Christmas present :-)

Anyway, it looks like you have to make a case of 12 but that can include wine. I have added a couple of Tokajis into the mix but am still well short. Will see if my Mum intends getting any wine in for Christmas...

They do the only nice alcohol free wine ever made at Waitrose, potentially good for pregnant sisters.

If unable to abstain from drinking, a man may get drunk three times a month; if he does it more than three times he is culpable; if he gets drunk twice a month it is better; if once a month, this is still more laudable; and if one does not drink at all what can be better? But where can I find such a man? If such a man were found he would be worthy of the highest esteem.

Well... I got 3 bottles of the whisky so I saved £75 there. Also my Mum ordered 7 bottles so more than half the case is hers actually :D

Japanese whisky distillery taps 50-year-old casks. For US$12,970 per bottle, connoisseurs can expect a superbly complex single malt with a nose of overripe used panties unfurling on a faint tentacle finish (cnngo.com)
