A healthy breakfast on a spring morning
- 46 % ABV
- Uncoloured and unchillfiltered
- Mid Coul, Coulmore en Mains of Tullibardine Farms
As is the case with most Bruichladdichs, this is a whisky without an age statement, bottled at 46%, unchillfiltered and natural colour. The new Regime slightly modified this quality mantra to 50% ABV for the new The Organic Scottish Barley.
The Belgian importer for Wemyss Malts will be presenting a brand new 1997 Bunnahabhain for the Belgian market. This shiny new whisky from our favourite Scottish island (Islay, what else?) will probably be presented on the Spirits in the Sky festival in Brussels on November 8.
Some technical details:
- Distilled 1997
- Bottled 2014
- 46% ABV
- 273 bottles available
- Nikka Whisky Distilling Co.
- 51.4 % ABV
Nikka from the Barrel is a no age statement blend composed of Yoichi single malts and Miyagikyo grain whiskies. After the blending process the whisky is recasked to marry the aroma's and flavours and form a harmonious entirety.
Belgium vs Scotland: 1 - 1
- Dochter van de Korenaar
- 10 % ABV
- 66 cl
- batch june 2013
- matured on Lagavulin (2/3) and Ardbeg (1/3) ex-bourbon casks
Dochter van de Korenaar is a Belgian microbrewery. The Dutch Ronald Mengerink runs his craft brewery in Baarle-Hertog. The name of the brewery is inspired by a quote of Charles V that was written down in the chronicles of the city of Mechelen: "Ik kan beter tegen het sap van de dochter van de korenaar, dan tegen het bloed van de druiventros". Loosely translated as "I’m a better match for the juice from the daugther of the ear of corn then for the blood of a bunch of grapes."
The brewer was awarded a silver medal for his Embrasse Peated Oak. The first batches matured in casks that previously held Connemara whiskey from the Cooley Distillery. The June 2013 batch was lagered in Lagavulin and Ardbeg casks. Don't be fooled by the sticker stating "Peated whiskey cask"...
Time for my very first beer review!
