749) Caol Ila 1995, 19YO, Painter's Series, The Whisky Agency

N- Honey, sweaty and fur with preserved fruits, prunes, mango and sourish, backed by nice incense wood. Smokiness appeared tamed by aged and a bit subdue with layers of paper ashes.
P- More peat building up on palate, along chocolate and pleasantly sweet vanilla. Plenty of heats, fume and spicy mints at the back. Good body and elegant.

F- Medium-long, well balance of sweet and smokes that lasts. Fresh and breezy, may be lack the usual marine notes but yet another very good Caol Ila.

752) Tomatin 1988, 25YO, The Perfect Dram, The Whisky Agency

N- Refines and elegant that acquired from fine aging, delicate notes of kumquat, honey, milky chocolate and fine tea, all fits in well on the subtle wood notes. Fresh and pleasant, just as delicious.

P- Subtly spicy frizzy sensational that works well with juicy citrus, black tea and drift of smokes. Gummy candy and maltose mouth coating.

796) Strathmill 1990, 23YO, Liquid Library, The Whisky Agency

N- Nutty almond and a honey bomb, with also floral and malty notes dancing around, you just cannot not liking it. Lifted further with fine chocolate notes, underlay whiff of peculiar old rubber, fruit candy and fine cedar wood, scents of cigar cabinet. Energetic and full of life with charms yet complex.
P- Soft dried fruits, particularly fig, with roasted malt and yummy semi-ripe strawberry. Not as expressive as the nose.

F- Very long, an active refill butt with plenty of quality spicy strength to last, firm and warming throughout. Just with a wee touch of wood shave pop up at the wrong place.

[How can a closed distillery produce whisky?🤔]
If you’ve read the <Malt Whisky Yearbook>📖 , it stated that Mannochmore distillery was mothballed from 1985-1989. But the bottle in this picture is from 1988 – a 1988 Mannochmore? How can a mothballed distillery be producing whisky?
Well, this is actually a "trial-run" whisky 💡
Before a mothballed distillery reopens, production staff would typically do a few trial runs to ensure all the equipment can perform optimally and the flavors of the new-make spirit are what they expect. It’s not until the production quality was confirmed, the distillery would announce its reopening 👍
And this delicious 1988 Mannochmore was indeed produced during its trial-run before reopening. Hope this whisky tidbit can be a fun factoid for your start of the work week 🤗
.
「關廠的酒廠也能生產酒?」
如果你手邊正好有威士忌年鑑或者其他相關的書籍,翻開Mannochmore那一頁,書上會告訴你這間年輕的酒廠在1985~1989年間是休停沒有運作的。「那圖中這隻1988的是怎麼回事?難道是假酒還是打標籤的人手誤?」
別擔心,這不是哪裡出了問題~其實這是所謂的「試產酒」。在酒廠決定要重新啟動之前,酒廠員工會先進行一波試產,一來確認整組設備是否能正常運作、二來也是確認做出來的新酒是符合他們想要的風味。直到這些都確認完畢之後,酒廠才會正式宣布復活。而這些試產酒也不會隨意倒掉(都是錢啊!),所以才能偶爾看到這種在酒廠重啟前一年的「試產酒」。希望這有趣的威士忌豆知識,能讓你的週一過的更開

Elegant with lots of maraschino cherries, varnish, vanilla. Palate is sweet, with soft tannins, popcorn and maple syrup!

Familiar with blended malts? If you are not, come in and let us tell you about this intriguing category of blended malts! We are doing a flight of a fun and fresh blended malt by @compassboxwhiskyco and @maisonduwhisky , moving on to a slightly richer blend from The Whisky Agency at 8 yo, and finishing off with the tasty @adelphi1826 Adelphi's Glenborrodale 8yo with rich sherry and dried fruits and a wisp of smoke.
This is the awesome world of the mysterious blended malts!
