A really interesting Medium cider made from Italian pressed apples and lightly sparkling, and in a cracking bottle that looks more wine than cider.
Well this is a dram from a distillery I know not a lot about, other than it’s a Grain distillery that no longer exists, and its basically the same age as I am.
Another supermarket purchase, picked out especially after Steve Prentice, my mate who happens to live in Cider country, told me this was top of his go to list.
This Peated malt, which is around 6 year old, was finished in Pedro Ximinez Sherry cask number 99917 giving the peat a caramelised jam finish.
So lets just take a minute to look at the age statement on this dram, 50, yes 50, year old blended grain from the wizards of whisky at That Boutique-y Whisky Company, and batch 2 of it, at that.
I’ve been picking up supermarket Ciders recently and this is another from my local supermarket, an interesting cider from Jack Daniels.
I've had Flor de Cana rums a few times but always with cigars so never written reviews of them so was nice to sit and sip this one on it's own.
This Foursquare Dominus Rum was tasted as part of the recent Tweet Tasting By The Floating Rum Shack of rums from the Foursquare Distillery.
This Cask Strength 2005 vintage Rum was tasted as part of the recent Tweet Tasting By The Floating Rum Shack of rums from the Foursquare Distillery.
Another from the recent Tweet Tasting By The Floating Rum Shack of rums from the Foursquare Distillery which was one i'd heard of but not partaken of previously.
When theres a possibility of a Tweet Tasting By The Floating Rum Shack that involves interesting rums, i'm never going to look away.
I’ve seen a number of distilleries trying different things recently with Triple Distillation being one of them.
Another supermarket Cider choice, I tend to like a lot of cider at this time of year, I find it refreshing, and I jump between ones I know and ones I see and fancy trying.
Tamdhu mature all, well I believe all, of the whisky in-house in sherry butts with Oloroso sherry being the cask of choice, because of this Tamdhu is not a distillery I tend to hunt out and try.
Mannochmore is a distillery that only really gets to spread its wings and shine through independent bottlers as the majority of it’s production is used for blending with it being one of the core drams in Ballantines blended whiskies.
Another supermarket special this was part of a selection I picked up in my local supermarket and have enjoyed them all.
The last of four of the octave finishes in this series of Pulteney drams from AD Rattray is this Rum Octave Finish.
A quick wander around any decent sized supermarket nowadays will let you find a range of interesting craft ciders, with Sheppys being a particular favourite it was good to find this VAT 07 premium Cloudy Cider.
The third of four of the octave finishes in this series of Pulteney drams from AD Rattray is this Rioja wine Octave Finish.
The second of four of the octave finishes in this series of Pulteney drams from AD Rattray is this Oloroso Sherry Octave Finish.
