The Rare Malt Hong Kong x Tiger x GlenDronach

  Chinese edition is here. Recently, the Taiwan exclusive whisky bottlings are getting popular amongst whisky connoisseurs. The rich favors and package design with Chinese elements attract not only the local Taiwan customers, but also win the appreciation of other Asian and even the western markets. The Taiwanese market is mature and big enough to sustain a stable still growing status quo that allows the presence of many of these exclusive bottlings. Many people see Taiwan as a whisky paradise in Asia. Whisky is becoming a trend in Hong...

The Rare Malt x 虎之選 x GlenDronach

  English edition is here. 台灣包桶的威士忌近年在香港賣得成行成市,口味方面很個人那就不說,包裝上則充滿中國元素,如三國呀戲劇呀等。正所謂藝術既嘢我識條鐵,默默的看過便好。 那有沒有想過,會有香港的選桶包桶呢? 近日有老友堅持要我去一間開業於觀塘的酒行(酒專)看看,基本上我已很厭倦公關式的吃喝活動及坊間的買賣,但老友堅持,那順意去看看吧,那便是標題的 The Rare Malt ,一間新開業的香港酒行(酒專)。這店的店長我應該認識亦可能之前有見過面,說實在的香港所謂的"酒界"活躍的來來去去總是那幾批人,就算我多宅也好,總也會識到些人的。年青的店長說有參加過我的講座和"自細"便有看 Sipping Malt 的文章 (自細? ^%$&xo&^;^%^%(^*&….)。店面裝潢平實中見心思,尤其喜歡那酒架設計,酒款由數百元的多納十五年到珍藏級的輕井澤和古董酒也有,正是豐儉由人,店長年青亦青靚白凈….(哦~~~~ 你賣廣告!) OKOK,入正題。 這新開業的酒行竟然和台灣酒業名人黃敏恭先生合作推出香港限定的 The Rare Malt x 虎之選 x...

Glenfiddich 40 years 2013 Release 9

  A simple tasting note of an extraordinary whisky. Glenfiddich 40 years, 2013 Release 9, 600 bottles, 700 ml, 41.7% (tasted on 6/5/14) Obviously it was a sample as I am well-known the poor that by no mean I can afford a bottle. This 40 years old Glenfiddich is belonging to the Rare and Vintage Series. This Glenfiddich with a £2,700 price tap is the second but most expensive one in this series. The champion is the 50 years old Glenfidich which is selling for £22,850. I understood that we should not just focus on price and age for a...

The Whisky Agency Glenallachie 1973

  Glenallachie 的威士忌,在市場上並不多見,一般見於獨立裝瓶廠 Independent Bottler (IB) 的出品,原裝裝瓶的更罕見,Chivas Borthers’ 的 Cask Strength Edition 系列是少數之一。Glenallachie 的存在,是提供原酒調配調合威士忌,她是 Chivas 旗下多個威士忌品牌的原酒之一,除了主力 Chivas Regal,亦包括 Highland Clan, House of Lords, Passport, Queen Anne Clan Campbell 和 100 Pipers。後這數款威士忌罕見於香港酒行,反而偶見於一些辦館或非集團式小型超市。 來個 Glenallachie 的簡介吧,這算是間年青的酒廠,於 1967 年才由 Mackinlay McPherson Ltd. 建立,於 1985 年賣了給Invergordon Distillers Group,但轉手後短短兩年便被停廠,再兩年後便又再被賣走,真薄倖哦。買家是隸屬於 Pernod Ricard 的 Campbell Distillers。 Glenallachie 成為了 Pernod Ricard...

不簡單的酒的簡單酒評 Glenfiddich 40 years

  這酒評很簡單,但酒卻不簡單哦。 Glenfiddich 40 years, 2013 Release 9, 600 bottles, 700 ml, 41.7%  (tasted on 6/5/14) 很明顯我喝的是老友送贈的樣本,我這等死窮鬼是買不起的。 這款四十年陳的 Glenfiddich 是屬於 Rare and Vintage 系列,在全線酒款中,按酒價計,除了神壇級賣£22,850的五十年陳外,便算這一款賣£2,700神檯級的四十年陳了。 “喝酒不是喝價錢的,喝酒也不是喝年份(包括vintage 和 age statement),好些大師如是說,不是嗎?" 你們放過我這窮酒鬼吧,就是窮,買東西要斟酌價錢,買東西要知道實際買了些甚麼。你賣我這 GlenIslayer 二十三年的酒,好歹我也知道這瓶酒桶陳了二十三年之久,買得比那瓶 Bowfiddich 十三年貴也有道理哦。你這瓶無陳年標示 NAS 的 Macallapark Master Signature 賣得比GlenIslayer 23 years 1989 Lion Selection 還要貴?天知道你裡面調了些甚麼哦?你要騙誰哦!? “別傻了,你不能用蘋果跟榴槤比的哦!...

簡單酒評 Glenfiddich Cask Collection Vintage Cask

  我現在要介紹的這款 Glenfiddich,是見於免稅店的 Cask Collection 系列酒款。 這系列是一套三款,以下是官方介紹的定位: Select Cask: Sweetness, Spice and Citurs Reserve Cask: Antique Leather, Spice and Oak Vintage Cask: Smoky, Floral and Intense 我喝的樣本是 Vintage Cask Glenfiddich Cask Collection Vintage Cask, 700 ml, 40% “為甚麼不全喝三款才作全面介紹?" 哦~ 作為窮酒 L,有甚麼便喝甚麼的了,那有得揀擇。我不擅於埋堆拍馬屁,騙不到甚麼名酒老酒。有這些真心朋友送贈交換回來的樣本喝,已經很滿足的了,起碼是挺直腰骨地喝,喝得很暢快哦! 還是不要葡萄人家了,說回這 Vintage Cask 。根據官方介紹,這款酒是有淡泥煤的風味,分別由歐洲和美洲橡木桶陳的原酒調配,但沒有說明是雪莉還有波本。正路歐洲橡木桶陳的會是雪莉,美洲橡木桶陳的可以是雪莉或波本。 喝喝看怎麼樣的吧。 氣味: 炭灰,微鹹, 青草,紅蘋果,紅糖,甘草 口味:...

  Worldwide spirits and wines at Sipping Malt www.sippingmalt.com A simple tasting note about a GlenDronach. This GlenDronach is bottled for Mr. Kenny Hsu who is a Keeper of the Quaich. He is a friend of mine. He gave me a sample in a nice bottle in few years ago. I keep it as my treasure and therefore never open it. It has nothing to do with the value of this whisky but to the matter about how you value the friendship. Luckily my friends recently gave me another sample of this bottling. This sample is obtained from a Kenny guided...

Macallan Fine Oak  先入為主 ?

  環球美酒盡在 Sipping Malt 微醺之醉 www.sippingmalt.com English Version please click here 麥卡倫一向以其雪莉桶陳的威士忌以自豪。當其雅致系列 Fine Oak series 於 2004 年首現,好些麥卡倫的死忠粉絲大表不滿 – 不再是根正苗紅的雪莉麥卡倫了! 此外,還有傳言說標準的雪莉桶陳系列將會被這新的雅致系列取代。又據聞亞洲市場的反應最大,麥卡倫實在不感得失這個大市場,隨即更改配方,呀,照政府的邏輯這應該叫作"優化",加重了雪莉桶陳原酒的成份,"優化"為黃金三桶系列 Fine Oak Triple Cask Matured series,並澄清原有的雪莉桶陳系列繼續發行。這幕肥皂劇終於可以完場。 盡管如此,很多飲家還是偏愛標準的雪莉桶陳系列,尤其是雪莉桶陳系列和黃金三桶系列的官方定價是相同的,這是真的是先入為主的原因嗎? 我有喝過數個版本的十八年 Fine Oak,甚至乎二十五年陳的也喝過,我個人認為實在好喝。那現在喝喝入門款的十二年陳如何?

Macallan Fine Oak – the Preconceptions?

  Worldwide spirits and wines at Sipping Malt www.sippingmalt.com Macallan prides of her Sherry cask aged whiskies. When the first Fine Oak series was released in 2004, it broke the heart of some Macallan die-hard fans – no more blue blood Sherry Macallan. There was a hearsay that the standard Sherry Oak series would be replaced by that new Fine Oak. Rumored that the Asian markets complaint the most and Macallan adjusted the formula by increasing the weight of Sherry components to “refine" the series as “Fine Oak Triple...

勞斯萊斯級價錢的 Macallan the Rolls-Royce….Price

  環球美酒盡在 Sipping Malt 微醺之醉 www.sippingmalt.com English Version at page bottom 聽過有人稱麥卡倫 Macallan 為單一麥芽威士忌中的勞斯萊斯,酒質方面先不說,但酒價呢,由尤其以近年來說,則絕對稱得上勞斯萊斯級了。很多人一說起麥卡倫 Macallan, 尤其是酒質酒價這話題,總是爭論不休。其實與其說是爭論,倒不如說是抱怨,大多數的說法,不外乎都是說她近年酒質大不如前,沒有以往那麼雪莉,價錢越來越高,新品無年份賣高價,這價錢可有很多其他選擇….應該差不多了吧! 我喝酒很簡單,有興趣的才想買,買得起的才買,好喝與否當然重要,要掏腰包真金白銀用血汗錢買的。但喝酒最重要的是,要知道好喝的話有那好喝,難喝的話怎樣難喝。世界美酒萬千,嘗酒就就要有神農嘗百草的勇氣,探險家發現新大陸的好奇心,無論是自費買的,人家送的,好好珍惜每一杯美酒,用心了解她的美好或缺點,豐富自己的美酒知識寶庫。 好了,廢話說夠了,還是不要裝文青寫甚麼嘔心的舒情文了,酒鬼還是直接了當喝酒吧。 Macallan 25 years Sherry Oak, 700 ml, 43% 不得了,是麥卡倫 25...

  環球美酒盡在 Sipping Malt 微醺之醉 www.sippingmalt.com English Version at page bottom 七歲….甜齒,這標題你第一眼看上去,真的是七歲"甜"齒? 開過小玩笑罷了,還是入正題吧。對不起,今天的酒評,還是關於格籣多納 Glendronach。我還有很多篇未刊出的格籣多納酒評呢,包容包容吧。 格籣多納 Glendronach 對不少飲家的印象,就是濃郁甜美的雪莉桶陳威士忌,PX 的更濃甜,酒色深邃,黑醬酒般的更受歡迎,十多年陳的起跳,二十年陳以上更佳。我自己喝過的多納很多也是以上的類型,不是我特別追求,但遇到的就是這些哦(….把妹嗎 XDDD)。 我有機會喝到一款"非典型"的多納,就是以下這款。 GlenDronach 7 years, 2006, SMWS 96.7, 700 ml, 59.3% Title: For a sweet tooth Distilled: 8 June 2006 Cask type: Refill Ex-Bourbon Barrel Nos. of bottle: 187 這款酒是 SMWS 瓶裝,酒款描述"為了甜牙齒 For a sweet...

    環球美酒, 盡在 Sipping Malt 微醺之醉 www.sippingmalt.com Longmorn蒸餾廠由John Duff於1895年成立, John Duff 曾於Glendronach做經理, 更是Glenlossie的創辦人。 3年後1898年John再係隔離開設Longmorn的姊妹廠BenRiach。 可惜好景不常, 1899年調合威士忌公司Pattison’s whisky倒閉, 蒸餾廠生意大受打擊, John Duff將Longmorn及BenRiach賣掉。Longmorn 多年輾轉易手, 1978被Chivas購入, 再一并在2001被Pernod Ricard Group收歸其下。 而BenRiach輾轉易手至Pernod Ricard Group, 2004由南非和蘇格蘭組成的獨立財團購入, 成立BenRiach Distillery Company Limited。再於2008年買入Glendronach。不知當年BenRiach的姐妹廠Longmorn當年的風格是否類同, 今天的BenRiach是相一家非常勇於實驗和創新嘗試不同過桶的酒廠;...
