Whilst restrictions remain in place around the world, the annual World Whisky Day will return Saturday 16th May, as an online celebration of the whisky community. A series of events will take place online, featuring Jura Single Malt Whisky, and key figures from across the industry including World Whisky Day Founder, Blair Bowman, and special guests.
The world has had to respond to the challenging times we face, including the whisky community in Scotland and worldwide. WWD and Whyte & Mackay responded with a reimagined online event, to provide an opportunity for the community to come together, mark the day, and recognize the people in the industry in aid of The Drinks Trust – the charity for the drinks industry.
Three samples of Dubliner Whiskey Beer Cask Series, part of the The Dublin Liberties Distillery Tweet Tasting, held Wednesday April 29.
Dublin is the capital of Ireland in the province of Leinster. Brewing beer in Ireland goes far back in history. And the coffee (for what I’ve heard) is just astonishing and not to compare anywhere else, this made me curious about the Limited Edition of these series.
It has been a while, but I attended a tweet tasting. And again, it was a blast.
This time it was inaugural Scalasaig Island Hopper release, which has a limited release to 3,000 bottles.
The whisky has been produced using ten unique casks of single malt whisky with a distinctly maritime style, which were vatted by and re-racked into first-fill European sherry oak casks to finish their maturation.
Alongside an array of whisky brands including Glen Moray, Arran and BenRiach, with a view to bringing enjoyment to the general public and the whisky industry which, like many others, has faced event cancellations and postponements in recent weeks.
Fishermans Retreat Edition No.6 Bruichladdich, Rivesaltes French Wine Cask. With just 249 bottles available, this is an amazing release.
Distilled on Wednesday the 23rd of May 2007 and bottled in 2019, Fishermans Retreat Edition No.6 Bruichladdich, isn’t been on the market that long. It is therefor a privilege and an adventure to enjoy this 50.4% limited edition, single malt whisky.
The Balvenie Distillery, built in 1892 by William Grant, is located north of Dufftown near Glenfiddich and they are one of Scotland’s most traditional distilleries.
The Balvenie 12 yr old Single Malt whisky; ‘The sweet toast of American Oak’, is the 1st part of a series of 3, with the name; ‘The Stories of Balvenie’. Charred virgin oak barrels are filled with bourbon whisky cask aged Balvenie.
This combination of virgin oak and ex-bourbon provides an amazing fruity taste and rich color.
