RUM DEMERARA 23

Colour: deep reddish amber. Nose: c’est magnifique. A rich 100% Demerara style, ultra-raisiny and stunningly molassy (in a good way) nose, with litres of pipe juice (I know), tar, liquorice liqueur and cane juice. Let’s only hope this baby won’t be too sweet on the palate. Mouth: wham! I’m so glad I chose this one after the PCs, this is... continue

PORT ELLEN 1983/2009 - PORT ELLEN 1983/2011

Port Ellen 26 yo 1983/2009 (53.5%, Silver Seal) Colour: pale gold. Nose: same as cask #221. I mean, exactly the same. With water: ditto. Mouth (neat): same as cask #221. With water: ditto. Finish: ditto. Comments: same cask? Sister cask? Mimetism? Unconscious imitation? Protective mimicry? The wonders of industrialism? Extreme consistency? Cost... continue

BOWMORE 16 YO - 1995/2011 - 91 PUNTI (da: www.whiskyfun.com)

Bowmore 16 yo 1995/2011 (54%, Silver Seal) Colour: full gold. Nose: this baby seems to have some sherry. There’s a leathery side, some pipe tobacco, fir cone fire, overripe apples, walnuts… The coastal side is more subdued than usual but there are also beautiful notes of bitter oranges and Demerara sugar. A little game as well. All very nice so... continue

PORT ELLEN 28 YO - 1983/2011 - SCORE : 92+ (www.slowdrink.de)

Comment: Big intense spice nose that has everything that makes Port Ellen such a gem nowadays. This one is right in the middle of all possible PE profiles. Some maritime dirtiness, sea spray and brine, herbs, oil, ropes, peppery and chili-esque spice, leather, the wonderful crispy maltiness (like salted crisps), camphor, discrete mint, peat smoke,... continue

CARONI RUM - miglior RUM dell'anno - 90 punti (da: www.whiskyfun.com)

Colour: full gold. Nose: no obvious oaky tones here, rather unexpected notes of... black olives. Well, we shouldn’t be surprised, olives, usually black ones, are often to be found n some rums in my experience. I’m not talking about James Bond. Other than that, we get motor oil, heavy tar, brine, camphor... And no, it’s not some Ardbeg sherry cask!... continue

GLEN KEITH 18 YO - 1991 - SILVER SEAL

Glen Keith 18 yo 1991 (46%, Sestante Collection,+/-2010)   I believe a part of this cask was bottled in magnums under the ‘Silver Seal’ flag. Aren’t our Italian friends good as designing old- style whisky labels? Colour: gold. Nose: it’s a rather grassy and flinty Glen Keith, well in the style of some other rather fairly recent middle-aged... continue
