Drinking whisky gives a feeling of luxury, outdoor experience, enjoy it with friends .... and that resulted in some nice anecdotes over time....
Bushmills Single Malt Whisky
It is not just the Irish Rock Legends who draw their inspiration from this lovely Irish whiskey. James Joyce wrote in his famous novel that the dizzying monologue of Molly Bloom in Ulysses originated because "the Bushmills was talking'.
Bushmills (bush-mills) 1608.n full. Alc: 40% is coming from Northern Ireland and tastes rich and warm with a short, refreshing finish and a hint of spice.
Nice mix: Bushmills Big Apple
Bushmills Original ice, ginger ale 100ml, 100ml apple juice, garnish with a slice of green apple. Serve with Apricots and plums.
Lagavullin Single Malt Whisky
The Russian spy Yuri Kobaladze was a peculiar men of word, as shown by the following quote: "I have a nostalgic feeling for Great Britain. I came to the conclusion that nothing is better than a 16 year old Lagavulin whisky"
Lagavulin (laga-voo-lin) 1816.n ABV: 43% vol comes from the Scottish Region Isle of Islay and is intense and smoky with a fruity sweetness. Serve by a appitize of strong, salty blue cheeses such as Roquefort, Stilton and Gorgonzola blue Lanark.
Glenkinchie Single Malt Whisky
The area around the distillery was a hideaway for smugglers in time before the big legal distilleries - in 1777 Edinburgh was known for over 400 illegal distilleries. By the time Glenkinchie was formed, 115 distilleries had a license, but their products would today probably not pass the inspection! It is a tribute to the quality of Glenkinchie that they have stood the test of time.
Glenkinchie (glen-chin-chie) 1825.n ABV: 43% vol comes from the Scottish Lowlands and taste light and delicately tasty with or without ice in sushi or tempura shrimp.
The Singleton is presented in a unique flint-blue glass bottle with a flat back. The characteristic flat shape was inspired by whisky bottles from the 19th century, which were made a bit flatter to pile them up for transport by horse and carriage.
The Singleton of Dufftown 1896.n Alc: 40% vo comes from the Scottish Speyside region. The Singleton is rich and fruity, perfectly balanced, delicious to combine with Rocher Chocolates (pralines) or creme brulee.
The whiskey choice of that famous spy in the books of Ian Fleming was a single malt from the Isle of Skye: Talisker.
Talisker (tal-iss-ker) 1830.n Alc: 45.8% comes from the Scottish region Isle of Skye and is firm and smoky with a peppery finish. The single malt that was created by the sea! Delicious with smoked salmon ...
Cardhu Single Malt Whisky
A burdensome thing: Helen Cumming began as an illegal "moonshine " distiller' (illegally distilled liquor). The Customs Administration visits were frequent, but Helen often distracted them with an invitation to stay for dinner and as she set the table, she took the opportunity to hang out the red flag behind the barn to warn their illegal neighbour distillers.
Cardhu (car-doo) 1824.n ABV: 40% vol comes from the Scottish Speyside region and is fruity and spicy with layers of flavors, it is a rich-flavored single malt. Delicious with a dish with parma ham.
Dalwhinnie Single Malt Whisky
Dalwhinnie is the definition of a true 'Highland'malt. It is not only the highest situated Distillery of Scotland, but the village is also considered the most far-off and rough. In 1994 it was officially acknowledged as the coldest inhabited place in Scotland for that year! Serve Dalwhinnie so cold for the best taste or..... store it in the freezer for 24 hours before serving. That's the real Dalwhinnie experience!
