The Macallan to release fifth in Archival Series
How many years is it going to take us to reach pages this time? Interesting thoughts on the Dark Cove. I have to wait until the whisky messe in April to have a try. Joat posts months. Had a bit of retail therapy today and bought these, but which to try first? Enjoying a nice GlenDronach Batch 12 with the 2nd half. Going down well. I've not done the Ardbeg thing for a couple of years but was drawn by the ''sherry at its heart'' description for Dark Cove. Its clearly an Ardbeg - nothing like a Lagavulin Distillers - a firm favourite.
Its really delivers on the palate - small amounts on the very tip of your tongue - BAM! Peat smoke with a hint of sweetness that lingers for a good while. Not done anything with a drop of water yet.
Just busy sipping away over the last few nights. Look forward to a better nights sleep after last nights all night rave in the local woods - cheers plod - f all use. Only respect is that they took all their rubbish home - since when have ravers had a small degree of morals? Tip of tongue to back of mouth - several times.
Give it time. The nose is delivering best at the bottom of the glass - plenty of air in the nosing glass. This is one that goes a long way - perfect for a tight Yorkshireman. Podie 45, posts months. Which was nice.Welcome to WhiskyIntelligence. Please submit your press releases, newsletters, events, tasting notes or comments. The first St. Kilian German Single Malt bottling was limited to bottles only. It was quickly sold out.
For the general whisky inauguration, the experienced master brewer Mario Rudolf designed a Signature Edition Series to be continued by future releases. A special aromatic kick was initiated by five percent of toasted juvenile chestnut barrels. These refined the blend, which was vatted in a large tank for two days only.
The whisky integrated individual aromas of the respective barrels and lead to a very distinctive taste profile. The small 50 litre quarter casks enhanced the impression of maturity, the PX casks gave colour, sweetness, mildness and aromas of dark fruits, while the French chestnut wood made the Kilian whisky softer. The rum casks made it sweeter wheras Bourbon barrels had contributed some notes of caramel, vanilla, ripe pineapple and toffee.
The blending of distillates from different barrels was skilfully carried out by master blender Mario Rudolf. The sensory complexity generated by the vatting is a result of a highly sophisticated wood management system implemented at Sankt Kilian distillery. Some test trials were necessary as there had been no experience or tradition for the newly distilled spirits at Sankt Kilian distillery.
The German St. Kilian single malt whisky is a real surprise. The Signature Edition One is pleasing with its pronounced fruitiness. A bouquet of aromas of ripe apples, pears and apricots flows continuously into the nose. Impressions of pineapple, vanilla, caramel and honey follow. Malty barley tones emerge and recall youthful freshness of the whisky. Soft sweetness of toffee and honey unfolds on the palate, which gradually leads to a spicy, slightly peppery, ginger-like notion.
In the end notes of bitter chocolate and some nuttyness flair up. For its young age, the whisky causes a well-balanced mouthfeel. There are no alcoholic pungent effects in the nose. The alcohol is harmoniously integrated in its overall appearance.
A caramel-like sweetness lingers on for a medium length of time, however, it ends abruptly. The highly fruity single malt appears surprisingly harmonious for its young age. Conclusion: The Signature Edition One by Sankt Kilian is a successful and enriching newcomer among international whiskies. Release Signature Edition Three. The Peaty St.
Kilian Version.Classic advertisements which were used to promote the Macallan in bygone days are making a limited comeback. Complete with a sherry oak style of The Macallan, Folio 3 continues the ongoing Archival Series remembering the legendary advertising campaigns of the s, s and s that took The Macallan to a wider audience for the first time.
A collaboration with creative director, David Holmes, and copywriter, Nick Salaman — who masterminded the original campaign — Folio 3 leads with an advertising feature that celebrates the idea that whisky is best made in cold weather. This was inspired by a tradition commented on by The Macallan distillery manager to Holmes and Salaman on a visit to The Macallan estate.
Folio 3 will only be available directly from The Macallan and enthusiasts have the opportunity to secure a chance to purchase one of a limited number of bottles being made available through a ballot from The Macallan Online Shop. The Macallan will send you a confirmation email with additional details that confirms your entry into the ballot. Please note The Macallan visitor centre and shop will be closed to the public from Tuesday, 8 May onwards, as they prepare for their new distillery and visitor experience, opening this summer.

This is a rich and complex whisky containing rare spirit distilled from our home grown barley, selected for its unique character. Cultivated solely for The Macallan, this barley is distilled just once a year over a single week. Presented in a striking gift box inspired by the natural beauty of our Speyside home, the pack features inlay of hand-cut slate and a panoramic vista of our beautiful estate on the interior.
The wandering ducks? Well, on my way up to Benriach on 3rd May, I stopped off at Glenallachie as its new visitor centre was opened just in time for the Spirit of Speyside Festival. It was all quite calm when I got there but they had been busy and more people were due in. The distillery is looking beautifully white and crisp and the visitor centre is in darker tones inside. Another driver coming the other way had to do same.
I really liked that — having to stop for the wee creatures to get safely over. And so on to Benriach. They were kind enough to invite me up for the Friday of Spirit of Speyside. I could have chosen any, or all, of three events but the only one I had time for was the Warehouse 13 tasting with Rachel Barrie in the afternoon. There were about a dozen of us from various places clustered round the casks with pre-poured malts in the warehouse.
Some of them needed cuddling as it was a bit chilly. Rachel had chosen 6 single cask whiskies for us all to try, all 10 or 12 years old. One from an ex-Jack Daniels barrel; one from an oloroso cask; the third one from a virgin oak hogshead; fourth from a European oak Sauternes cask; number five was a peated one from a port cask and, lastly, a marsala casked whisky.
It was really hard to choose a favourite from all these goodies. The virgin oak had spices and toffee on the nose, then lots of fruit once water was added.
I detected mint and spices in the peated one. Benriach has such a richness of wood available and they do good things with all of it. Rachel says they have the most eclectic cask collection on Speyside — a good dozen types.

They also get 40 days more sun than other places in Scotland and only mm of rainfall a year as opposed to mm at sister distillery, The Glendronach to the east and 2,mm in the west of Scotland. It was the one from port cask and those are not charred but the whisky definitely had that aroma about it. They were all so complex and layered.
Check before you go or, even better, book your tour in case you turn up and the tour is already full. Whether you visit or not, it really is a range to try. Their Batch 1 at Not a lot for worldwide distribution. Benromach is one of the distilleries with no automation like Deanston.
I like it when distilleries rely on people rather than computers which is pretty rare these days.Lovers of The Macallan have just over a week to register their interest in a new limited dram.
