Malt Whisky Yearbook 2011

Tuesday, March 29, 2011 Review by judywrites

There have been wine guides for years, but I found something new – the Malt Whisky Yearbook.

Last November,  the 6th edition of the book was published. Each edition is up-to-date with the most current information from over 200 distilleries.

The publication includes information on whisky shops, new bottlings and more than 200 tasting notes for single malts from distilleries in Scotland, Ireland and even Japan.

Malt Whisky Yearbook 2011 might just be the perfect gift for your scotch enthusiast.

Take care,

Gawk. This makes me wish I didn’t skip breakfast. Hmmmmmmmmmmm. Maybe lunch perhaps? I love the fact that they use a spicy chipotle sauce as a spread. Can it get any better?

Nose (undiluted)
Surprisingly soft mist of peat, rich sherry, lots of spices and vanilla.  Quite impressive for the price of this malt.

Palate (undiluted)
Sherry, some cranberry and raspberry.  Lots of other rich red fruits too.

Finish (undiluted)
Nice sherry again, red licorice and black coffee on the tail end.

General Impressions
I am really impressed with this single malt.  I mean really impressed.  For a malt that is made up of whiskies as young as eight years, it tastes like the majority of the spirit is much older.  Then again the nature of the new make whisky may mature much earlier (ie. 8-10yrs) than others.  In any case, this bottle is proof again that age statements do not necessarily denote quality.
