Jeg har en hvis skepsis overfor den slags præmieringer. Der står at det er et udvalg af folk fra branchen, men jeg syntes ikke det fremgår om der er smagt blindt? I min optik skal den slags målinger foretages blindt, da alle har deres egne præferencer og ikke mindst interesser.

Citat: "Judges for Whisky Magazine's independent editorial panel were drawn from the best drinks journalists and retailers across the world, with industry representatives made up of master blenders, distillers and brand ambassadors in the final round."

Det underlige er hvis man så klikker på årets vinder - Yamazaki 25-yo, så får den langtfra topkarakterer ved "eksperterne".
Dave Broom mener den er "Old and over the hill" og giver den 65 point.
Martine Nouet skriver "Too oaky to be OK" og vurderer den til 70 point.
Ikke ligefrem noget der inspirerer til at smide 650 £ efter den hvis man er så heldig at kunne få en...

Martine's og Brooms anmeldelser er fra 2006

Den nyeste batch ligner noget der er meget bedre siden den kan samle den her pris op

Det ser ud til at den blev udbudt til 450 £, men nu koster 650 £ hvilket er meget naturligt - udbud og efterspørgsel.
Stadig en "samlerpris" som er helt ude af proportioner imo... :-(

Jeg bider dog mærke i et par ting.

En sydafrikansk blend vandt Worlds best blend. Det er overraskende, især med en top blend som Black Bull 40 i konkurrencen

Hvordan sidstnævnte kan vinde "Worlds Best New Release" er mig uforståeligt, den har efterhånden en del år på bagen, og der linkes til batch 1, der er siden kommet en batch 2, men det er vist også et par år siden efterhånden

Mere om Yamazaki 25 her

Meget positiv anmeldelser, men Chris Bunting skriver også

and I think there are just as interesting Japanese whiskies for a lot less, but I am adding myself to the pro-25 brigade if we are judging only on taste.

(Please note the dates on reviews if they are provided. There may be significant variation between different years of a single malt brand)


650 £ er vel bare et greb i lommen for dig Duffer, hvad med at købe en flaske og anmelde den her :-)

Det link er næsten fire år gammelt. :P

Man vil altid kunne finde nogen der syntes en whisky er rigtig god.
Man behøver ikke gå længere end til den legendariske Cardhu 12-års OB og Jim Murray :-)
Den japaner skal nok være udmærket og temmelig interessant hvis den kostede 120 £

Jo, 650 £ er måske et greb i lommen, men jeg tror både du og jeg kunne finde andre og bedre alternativer.
Og det er del fra min øvre grænse - man kan også blive til grin for sine penge :lol:

Ruben anmeldte Yamazaki 25 yo (43%, OB +/- 2010) - og ikke 2011 versionen som vandt.

I know. Iphonens tastatur tillod bare ikke den store stil :)
Lidt skidt, hvis den er så varierende i batch'ene. Især til den pris...
