A while ago I received a gift from the Glen Garioch Drambassador Club. In this gift I found 3 bottles of whisky. Whisky from Scotland ( Highland) to share and experience with my friends.
Recently I had the privilege to ask Ger Buckley, Master Cooper of Midleton Distillery some “serious” questions. I’ve met him during my stay at The Whiskey Academy in Ireland.
When you’re ever in the opportunity to shake this man’s hand with the opportunity to have a little chat, do it! Do not hesitate, just go for it. An amazing man, with amazing stories and an amazing strength.
Thoughts on whiskey: “Happiness is having a rare steak, a bottle of whisky, and a dog to eat the rare steak.”
This Tyrconnell 10 Year Madeira is just magnifique. That’s the first word that came to mind after the first shiver in my nose. This one sample that I had in my possession, wasn’t enough. That means I need more, much more. Now I’ve got a need for more. But have to settle with the sample for this moment. Enough whisky in the world or should I say whiskey to explore.
You are probably very curious about the vintage after reading about the Benromach 10 yr. I was born in the year 1979 and consider myself vintage. Flipping the 9 and you get 1976.
1976 is the year, Apple Computer Company is founded by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne and 1976 is the year Sony brings the Betamax cassette on the market ….
When a package arrives with two beauties inside. Whisky Beauties that is, my heart starts beating like a geek.
It’s time to review 2 samples from Benromach Distillery. I’m cutting the notes in two. In this review you can read about my findings about the 10yr old. The vintage will be joining soon! Continue reading
After a long and hard struggle I finally decided to open the bottle. I’m sorry that I can’t tell you the exact reason, it was a feeling I had. And a good feeling that was.
I knocked on the sample An Cnoc, the 12 yr old a couple of times, but no one opened the cap. Lucky for me I have strong hands and a strong grip. Voila, the sample has been opened in just a few seconds. Could be magic .. or I’m just a little criminal.
