今天起床發現有一個follower了,雖然有點失望,但和我期望的那個數字相差也就只有999而已,總算是個好開始
本來是要拍張美照上載的但我那天才藝術家女伴一睡醒吃了很多東西後又倒頭大睡,沒素材了只好用旅行時拍下的照片了
台灣真是個好地方,最美的風景也名不虛傳,還有就是#威士忌 真的很便宜,所以我決定要在餘生中撥出至少十年移居此地每天醉生夢死
今早看書,作者是一名居台二十年的外國人,成立了一間有限公司名為白痴,可能我太正常了所以很多處都看不懂,親愛的讀者們可以一看
還有是我沒有在利用我在ig上強大的影響力在為該書賣廣告,當然枚先生若是想打賞也是可以私訊我的
我想#白痴 會比較有吸引力,還是#文青 會好一些
後者似乎有挖坑的意味啊
#aberlour 是我很喜歡的威士忌品牌之一,雖然這瓶#abunadh 我還未能一嚐

A’BUNADH No.50 - 59.6%
新開的原酒難免帶著沈重的酒精嗆辣
濃濃的深色雪莉
期待下次再嘗試時能變的更加
柔順圓滑。

Seeing the weeds come through the cracks in this picture inspired me to write a poem.
.
.
.
With very little light,
Through the cracks I rise,
With little time passing,
I double in size,
.
I can’t be contained,
I push through walls,
I spread open cracks,
Not matter how small,
.
Scientifically speaking,
I’m not from a plant genus,
Jk about being a weed,
I’m really a penis.
.

Aberlour 16 yo 1st fill sherry cask, 59,1% abv.
This is a sherry bomb! No. The correct term would be sherry nuclear bomb!
The colour, the aroma, the taste.....it's wonderfully sherried!
Compared it to the a'bunadh batch 62. The comparison is unfair. The a'bunadh lacks the sherry punch and complexity of it's big brother.
Unfortunately it is now a bottle kill of this bottle your own I did in 2014 at the Aberlour distillery after superb tour and tasting. Some day I will be back at Aberlour and get my hands on a another sherry monster. .

Night fell with ruby red skies tonight in Scotland... Not a bad background for our whisky, matured in Oloroso sherry casks.

New episode is out now (link in bio)! We're drinking A'bunadh from @aberlour and it is incredible! Pour a dream and tune in!

Aberlour A’bunadh Batch#56, 61.2%

對亞伯樂原酒印象深刻。

前陣子入手第 56 批次的原酒,不過沒有馬上打開品酩,事實上對最近初相遇的 GlenDronach 更有愛,但今晚終究開瓶了,品飲之際就把舌尖的味道簡單寫下來(配合林宥嘉的伯樂好像蠻搭的,反正都有伯樂兩字)。 亞伯樂的原酒包裝方式很特別,瓶口是直接上厚厚的蠟封裝,打開時必須使用刀片劃開,沿著瓶口撕開,蠟封密合度較好,對酒精度很高的原酒來說也不容易讓酒跑掉。

第56批次的原酒將酒精度又拉升到更高的 61.2%,不過喝酒在意的一直不是酒精含量,還是忍不住貪杯後隔天醒來懊惱不已,還好我喝酒總是非常理性,抱著很敬畏的心面對每一支和自己擦身而過的威士忌,然後很冷靜的吞下每一口,在腦袋中出現一篇又一篇貼文,往往回過頭來檢視都不太確定這文筆是怎麼來的。

開瓶後撲鼻而來的是烏梅香氣,酒液顏色很深,偏暗紅色,這是在雪莉桶熟成特色,看來高貴、沈穩和氣質的色澤,沒有太多酒精刺鼻味,會讓你以外它是一支非常溫順的酒,入口後味道層次一層層被扒開,一拳拳紮實打進胸口,完美不已!

我試著喝了大約20ml,非常濃郁的梅子味道,雖然接續而來的味覺刺激很多,卻很難具體形容這些味道代表著什麼感覺,決定先把它塞好,放入木櫃中,過幾天再來重新感受一下。

Punk Rock Romania
TOMATIN 12 MINI

Swipe to see all FOUR Tomatin pix!

When Lord C and I were in Romania for a couple weeks in September, I bought minis of Tomatin 12 and Arran 10 to carry around the city for whisky pix. Just like here in Boston, super cool minis were really hard to find.. I love that these have the Romanian tax label across the top tho, such a great whisky souvenir!

We spent several hours at this awesome punk rock bar before I remembered I had the mini bottle, LOL, it was our third pub of the night! This bar is called Niste Domni si Fiii and translates to "Some Gentleman & Sons". We had sooo much fun there and took (what seemed like) a MILLION photos LOL, I'll put some in my story!

This is my first attempt at putting several photos in one post, so please slide left to see more of this fun bar and Romania.. The third photo was taken in the bathroom!

Lord C and I haven't traveled since March and it's been waaaay too long.. Next stop = Madrid and Barcelona! Can't wait!

Punk Rock Whisky!
COMPASS BOX DELILAH'S

I've been savoring the original Compass Box Delilah's XX whisky for an entire year and I looove it.. Words can't express how psyched I was to hear about this new XXV bottling!

Lord C and I spent most of the weekend celebrating my dad's birthday in the mountains of NH and when we stopped for gas on the way home, there was a liquor store right there... Hmmmm... What were the odds they'd have one of these bottles? I can't answer that, but my photo speaks a thousand words LOL!

The new bottling celebrates 25 years of the super cool, punk rock whisky bar in Chicago and I posted the 20 year anniversary bottling last October. I'll put a link to that post in my story, go look!
🛑
Stop here if you don't like whisky info!
🛑

Delilah's XXV has lots in
common with the original whisky-

1) it's another collab between Compass Box's John Glaser and Delilah's Mike Miller
2) the original American oak whisky is used as the base, but aged an additional 5 years
3) it's limited edition, only 8520 bottles
4) it's not chill filtered/has no artificial color!

What's different about XXV from XX?

1) this one's a yummy 46 abv
2) it's aged 5 more years
3) they've added lots of sherried whiskys, including Linkwood, Teaninich, Miltonduff
4) Did I mention sherry casks?

I love the idea of this whisky and the label is way too awesome. It's so nice I may post it twice, LOL... I can't wait to drink it! Today's another HOT one here in Boston, hope you're staying cool and enjoying the weekend!

Happy Sunday!

Old vs new A’bunadh. Have you tried both? What do you think? There’s been a lot of uproar in recent weeks about the pricing of the stronger Aberlours by Pernod Ricard. The newer abunadhs are nowhere near the quality of the older batches like this, despite the fact that they are all meant to copy the “original” bottle in terms of profile. Having said that, for the old price, the newer version isn’t a bad dram, especially compared to its replacement in the price range - the Casg Annamh - which tastes like its barely passed the three years and a day needed to qualify as scotch.

Aberlour A’Bunadh won the coveted Whisky of the Year award with 97.4 points at the 2018 International Whisky Competition! Shout-out to our Master Distiller Graeme Cruickshank and the Aberlour Team.

Hoyo Epicure No2 and Aberlour A’Bunadh
Don’t have much to say about the Hoyo but the A’Bunadh is another level. Powerful 61% with hints of dried fruit and dark chocolate was a treat
Lovely scotch that will always have a spot in collection

Hope everybody is having stellar humpday

Regrann from @whisky_donna - 🍃
GLENFIDDICH 18
Scotch Weekend!

Here's something I bet you
didn't know about Lord C-
He's not only a Lord, but he's also a fantastic chef! He likes to cook masterpieces year 'round and especially loves cooking outdoors during grilling season.

If he's cooking up a delicious meal, I MUST pair it with an amazing whisky! You prob already know that I'm a huge fan of @glenfiddichwhisky and their incredible 18 year is a current fave. Totally Manor bar staple worthy.

Seriously, there's almost nothing more fun than outdoor, summertime drinking along with yummy food.

This Glenfiddich is matured in Oloroso sherry and bourbon casks for at least 18 years, then married and aged an additional 3 months in small batches. These days, it even says Small Batch Reserve on the label. This stuff is apple fruity, toffee sweet and ginger spicy with lots of malty, nutty goodness.. Sooo many feels.

I got so caught up in the festivity of National Scotch Day yesterday, that I forgot to post and didn't even do a story! I mean, I know you had loads of fun too, so why limit it to just one day? Let's declare this National Scotch Weekend, I'll remember to get some pix posted and I wanna see your pix too LOL!

Cheers to summer, whisky and outdoor fun.. Check my story for tuns more!

더운 것도 지나치면 약간의 내성이 생기는 건지, 잠깐 나가 다녀보면 그래도 건조해서 이만 하다 싶다. 더워서 지친 입맛엔 촉촉하게 당 충전을.
의외로 술을 잘 안 먹는지라(피드 올릴 때 빼고 혼자 술을 마시는 적도 없다), 다른 술꾼 들 같았으면 벌써 예전에 없어졌을 아벨라워가 아직도 남아있는데, 전문적으로 마시는 분 들 처럼 마신 후 마개 처리(주로 파라 필름을 사서 감아준다)를 제대로 못하다 보니 증발해서 잔뜩 사나와져 있다. "구"처럼 완벽한 맛의 아벨라워이지만, 이렇게 사나와진 61.2도 짜리 위스키를 이 계절에 먹단 죽을 거 같아서, 이 완벽한 아이를 제대로 모시지 못한 미천한 자는 뭔가를 타서 먹기로 했다.
처음의 시도는 '오후의 홍차'. 자주는 아니지만 화장품 편집샵에 가면 주로 집어드는 밀크티. 덜 달고 우유맛 보다는 홍차 맛이 진하게 나서 우유를 잘 못 드시는 가리는 것도 많은 내 입맛엔 딱이다.
얼음을 가득 채운 잔에 아벨라워 1oz, 오후의 홍차 밀크티 4oz. 아벨라워의 깊은 맛에 밀크티의 부드러운 단맛이 잘 어우러진다. 오후의 홍차의 칭찬할 만한 점은 우유의 맛이나 홍차의 맛이 균형을 잘 이루고 있어서, "감히" 아벨라워님께 뎀비지 않고 자기 위치를 잘 안다는 점.
잠을 이루지 못하는 열대야. 세상에서 제일 고독한 영화인 [블레이드러너 2049]를 보며 아벨라워밀크티를 한 잔 하면, 절로 라이언 고슬링의 미간을 닮게 된다. 화면을 가득채운 안개를 입안으로 차곡차곡 가슴 속에 채워보자.

Going back to a classic sherry monster malt, Aberlour A’bunadh batch 61 at 60.8% ABV is as good as ever!

Whisky Korren checked, and 36 degrees C is not too hot for whisky! This batch 57 A'bunadh was just the perfect nightcap on a hot Swedish summers night. #abunadh #aberlour #maltwhisky #hotsummersnight #whiskykorren #summerinsweden

One more to celebrate #nationalscotchday
I’ve been nursing this @aberlour A’bunadh batch 42 for quite a good bit of time. It’s going to be a sad day when she’s finally empty.
What special bottles has everybody been pouring for themselves? 🥃

It’s no surprise I had to replace the Aberlour A’bunadh after the bottle kill a little while back. This particular bottle is from Batch 60. Anyone try this batch before? Thoughts? 🥃

This is definitely the best a'bunadh I have ever tried. Having a tempting, bold, overwhelming but not over doing sherry nosing is remarkable and rare nowadays. A solid sherry bomb in the palate but still, not over doing. To be more precise, I would say it is a firework but not a bomb. It is doing a really great job by giving me a long and satisfying finish. What a great dram! This is what exactly I've been looking for a wonderful sherried whisky!

Just like Serge said, "NAS is okay since a'bunadh is good." Cheers!

🥃Aberlour A’bunadh.
Gaelic for “the original” the A’bunadh pays homage to James Fleming, the founder of Aberlour. Hand crafted in individual batches, this single malt is an absolute cracker. It’s cask strength, is rich, complex, intense and it’s oh so rewarding. Selling for around $140 AUD a bottle, the A’bunadh is something special to keep on the shelf for when you need to warm the soul on a cold night.
———————————————
🔸Nose: Praline, Orange, dry spice reminiscent of old sherry casks. 🔸Palate: Intense! Full bodied mouthful of Orange citrus, dried fruit, hints of ginger and bitter coco and cherry. 🔸Finish: Equally as intense, strong spice, dark chocolate and oak influences, backed by a lingering sweetness warmth. .

Both unopened. Both phenomenal . Both can perform brutal takedowns I remember absolutely loving getting my hands on watchdogs for the first time. It’s weird, I prefer it to watchdogs 2 in ways.

Mystery Time!
THAT BOUTIQUE-Y WHISKY CO

This is a mystery whisky!

I've been a fan of That Boutique-y Whisky Co (TBWC) for a long time and got this bottle in Camberley, England in March. I couldn't resist because (a) it's @boutiqueywhisky and (b) it's an exclusive bottling for the UK wine and spirits chain, Maverick Wine.

This bottle is extra COOL because there's a MYSTERY to solve. Wanna help?

On the front label are 7 cryptic clues to the 7 distilleries that contributed to this yummy blend. There's a close-up shot in my saved story if you wanna try solving it too. They made the contest really tough because the prize was a £500 bottle of their 29 year Macallan!

Whisky Scoop-
This is an 18 year old bottling of their Blended Whisky #2. There were 2 batches of the 18 year and this Maverick Wine edition is Batch 1. My bottle is number 490 of 961 total bottles. It's all natural and 46.5 abv.
💥💥
UPDATE!
According to BensWhisky.co.uk,
The 7 whiskys are all 18 years old or older and they are: Highland Park, Glenrothes, Tamdhu, Bunnahabhain, Strathclyde, North British and Invergordon. I still couldn't match them to the clues on the label, but @100dconez could!

Check my saved story for all the scoop!

Donna Scoop-
There's a funny story about the glass in this photo. Nothing special, right? Every bar has them. Well... I "liberated" this one from our hotel to protect a souvenir during the rest of our travels! As a result, the glass became special to me LOL!

We haven't traveled since March, deciding to relax and live local for a bit, but it's been long enough.. Lookout Spain and Austria, we're visiting soon!

How's your summer going?
Any fun travel plans?
Happy Whisky Wednesday!

Time for some serious Whisky Business!!! 🥃🥃 A visit to Scotland is not complete without a whisky experience!
.
Follow me to Aberlour Distillery - located in Speyside whisky region at the confluence of the rivers Lour and Spey near Ben Rinnes.
.
Behind me is a Distillery’s manager cottage that was built in 1879 and is the only building that has survived the fire in 1898.
.
Today we had some interesting tastings which includes:
.
🥃 Casg Annamh (Batch No. 1)
📕Originally produced for the French Market last Dec and only available in shop last week, this is a triple cask matured whisky which has intense Sherry and Caramel flavor!
.
🥃 A’bunadh (Batch No.62)
📕 Means The Origin and it aims to create the old whisky James Fleming would make in the 19th Century. origin Only mature in sherry cask.

GLENLIVET NADURRA 16
All Natural/Cask Strength

I'm not sure if you remember, but in February I posted a fairly recent bottling of Oloroso matured Nadurra. I love it, it's really quite good but the overwhelming response was that everyone missed the discontinued 16 year Nadurra. So I got a bottle!

Both versions are distilled and bottled in small batches, dated and numbered on every bottle. Both are all natural, with no chill filtration or added color. I mean, the name Nadurra is Gaelic for 'natural' after all LOL. There are 2 MAJOR differences- the age statement and maturation casks. Side by side tasting soon!

Nadurra 16 is aged in American oak ex-bourbon barrels for at least 16 years and bottled at 54-56%. My bottle is 55.7 abv. One important thing to note, while all of these are cask strength they are not single cask bottlings.

Btw, all Nadurra are super drinkable for cask strength whisky, even without water. Lord C was on his third (very) large dram and when I told him the abv he was shocked!

Donna News-
In my most recent Macallan post, I mentioned my obsession with signboards and believe it or not, I actually acquired another since then.. this one lights up LOL, see the above photo!

We're about done with lily season here at the Manor, one of the last is pictured here and I'll miss all that color!

I hope you had a fun Friday the 13th
and are celebrating Bastille Day today
with lots French Whisky, santé!

Happy Saturday
See my story for a lot more pix!

#istandwithtrooper #wesupportyouscotchtrooper Showing my support to @scotch_trooper who has educated and brightened my day with his posts. Check out his story. Apparently someone deemed mixing toys and whisky a bad thing 🙄 Sorry, Barbie is all I have! I will be sure to corrupt some little girls with this post!

Two highly peated and a sherry bomb! The Abunadh is so strong and long lasting - the Bunnahabhain and Benromach are both highly peated but in a very different way!

GLENMORANGIE 18
Extremely Rare

As you know, I just love everything I've tried from @glenmorangie and it's one of my fave distilleries, but... I never actually tried the 18 "Extremely Rare" until this past March at a super fun pub in England. I'm not really sure why it took me so long.. I'm guessing the huge variety of other delicious whiskys were keeping me otherwise occupied, LOL!

I'd really been missing out tho, this stuff is super tasty. From my very first sip, I knew it'd be a Manor bar staple and I was lucky enough to find it on sale. I love a whisky that's magically both smooth and complex!

Whisky Scoop-
This whisky is matured for 15 years in American white oak, ex bourbon casks, then a third is removed and aged for 3 years in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks. When both batches reach 18 years, it's all married and bottled at 43% abv. I'm not sure about chill filtering or added color on this, do you know? I couldn't find any info, which usually means it has both. The color is sooo pretty, I hope it isn't fake and I'll do the water test tonight to see if it's chill filtered.

That said, IMHO Glenmorangie 18 is every bit as delicious as Macallan 18 but waaay more affordable. Not only that, if you like a good-looking bottle on your bar, this one is really gorgeous. You should see the base and the box! I'll post more pix in my story.

I tried to keep this photo more simple than my usual posts and it actually wasn't easy but I did it!

We're still having unusually hot temps for Boston but it's just been fantastic and so much fun. I'm veeery excited it's finally Friday, that first week after vacation is always the longest LOL and now we get to celebrate Friday the 13th!

Happy Finally Friday
and cheers!

See my story MUCH more!
