The Thursday dram. -
My very good friend @raymondmontgomery is trying to convert me, by shipping me a bottle of Bushmills 10yr old single malt 🤔😂. I have made it known in the past, within this community, that I'm not a huge fan of Bushmills whiskey because, I find it a bit bland. So...what did I make of this??
-
Well, on the nose...immediately I get fresh juicy fruit. Very pleasant, not overwhelming. Perhaps lacking a little depth, but certainly better (in my opinion) than the other offerings I've tried. Lot's of apple and a hint of banana and maybe even spearmint.
The palate....is...nice 🤔😂😂. Alright, it's kinda strange, because the palate doesn't deliver what the nose would suggest. It dances around a bit and some of that fruit is there but doesn't have near the same influence. So I added a drop of water and (low'n'behold) the fruit was back. Along with the mint, but also with a bitter tinge which, sorta didn't work, but anyway...to...
The finish...before adding the drop of water, the finish was very rapid and underwhelming. The water actually gave it length and spice, making it very pleasant. -
So I'll wrap this up by offering a massive thank you to @raymondmontgomery for sending this. Has he converted me? Well I genuinely enjoyed this 10yr old single malt. I tried it alongside some of their 12yr old, and FAR preffered the 10. Am I now in the Bushmills camp? Well, I don't know, but I would recommend the 10 to anyone. 🤔 Might try the 16 next 😂
Cheers.

**DON'T FORGET**
.
We have this very special bottling exclusive to Speciality Drinks and The Whisky Exchange: a single cask of 26-year-old Green Spot pot still whiskey, distilled at Midleton and filled into cask on 18 October 1991.
.
It was initially matured in bourbon and sherry casks, before the spirit was reracked into a single Marsala butt for further maturation. The result brings together the fresh fruit flavours of bourbon-cask maturation with the richer dried fruit notes you get from sherry casks, and stirs them both together with fragrant Marsala and classic Irish pot-still fruit and spice.
.
Want to get your hands on our last remaining bottles of this exceptional @greenspotirishwhiskey? Please contact your Account Manager.

1700’lerin ortalarında İrlanda, ortalama 3 milyon nüfusuyla bir tarım ülkesiydi. O zamanlar ticaret şimdiki gibi olmadığı için fakirlerdi, nüfusun sadece çeyreği okuma-yazma biliyor ve ortalama 40 yıl yaşıyorlardı.

Çiftçiler yetiştirdikleri patateslerin bir kısmını arazi sahiplerine kira niyetine veriyordu. Kalanıyla da hayatlarını sürdürüyordu. İrlandalılar adeta sadece patates yiyordu. Patates, protein, karbonhidrat ve bazı vitaminler sayesinde onu yiyerek hayatta kalınabilecek bir besindi.

Günde üç öğün patates yeniyor, yanına yine patatesten ürettikleri alkol ve varlıklı olanlar sofraya balık, lahana atabiliyorlardı. Hatta bugünün meşhur Cooley viski damıtımevi (Kilbeggan ve Connemara viskilerinden hatırlayalım), bir zamanlar Ceimici Teo isimli -patatesten alkol üretim eviydi .

Kökten dinci Katolikler bu durumu “günahların bedeli” olarak yorumladı. Sosyal reformcu muhafazakarlar ise “büyük kurtuluş öncesi kutsama” dediler. Kimileri de aslında yeni çalışmaya başlayan lokomotiflerin havaya yaydığı elektrik yüzünden olduğunu söyledi. Elbette tümü yanlıştı. Patatesleri çürüten şey, Güney Amerika’dan gemilerle İngiltere’ye, oradan da şiddetli rüzgarlarla İrlanda’ya taşınan ve kök boğazı çürüklüğü olarak bilinen (Phytophthora ) bir tür mantar hastalığıydı. Patatesi yok ederek, aslında ülkeyi mahvedecekti.

Bu büyük açlık esnasında ölen yüzbinlerce İrlandalının yanında, bir o kadarı da “yüzen tabut” gemilerle Amerika’ya göç etti. Gemideki her 5 kişiden birinin kesin, 2-3’ünün sonradan hastalıktan öldüğü bu göçle de, Amerika’da İrlanda nüfusu artmaya başladı.

Velhasıl zaman geçti, İrlanda, hem kendi, aynı zamanda da İngiliz uzmanlar ve çiftçilerin de yardımıyla bu kıtlığı atlattı ama nihayetinde yaklaşık bilinse de 2 milyon İrlandalı öldü, bir o kadarı da ülke dışına göç etti. Bu hikaye, bir ülkenin tek bir şeye bağımlı olmasının getireceği sonuçlardan ibaret aslında.

1857'ye gelindiğinde ise Redbreast viskinin ilk sahipleri olan W&A Gilbey, Londra’da bir şarap evi olarak kuruldu. İlk ilanda şöyle yazıyordu: "Redbreast Likör Viski hizmetinizdedir. Ondan daha sadakatli, dürüst, sizi aldatmayacak bir arkadaş edinemezsiniz." Slainte 🥃

Couldn't pass by Cork without stopping at @jamesonwhiskey distillery in Midleton.🇮🇪 Such an iconic distillery producing many of the most delicious Irish whiskeys from the famous @redbreastirishwhiskey, @greenspotirishwhiskey, @midletonveryrare, @powers_whiskey and the more experimental @methodandmadnesswhiskey range ! 😘 This last one is distilled in a special "microdistillery" within the distillery (inception!) that you can see on pic 4 ;)
Oh, and pic 2 is actually the biggest still in the world 😱 #funfact

Evening in the office with @glendaloughus Irish Whiskey.
Irish: Gleann Dá Loch (took me a min to say it right ) meaning valley of two lakes 😎 loving the range of expressions and finishes they are producing. This one is finished six months in Spanish oloroso sherry casks. Looking forward to seeing this brand grow in Miami.
