Serge's smagsnoter

Bruichladdich 1992/2007 'Fishky' (50.2%, Stupid Cask, Germany) Ho-ho-ho! This is a very funny experiment made by some German guy, who bought a bourbon cask of Bruichladdich new make and let it mature in Scotland and then let it being re-racked in sherry in 2001, and finally let it being shipped to Berlin last year. Guess what, he did then a herring cask finishing on it to pay tribute to the early distillers who used to use herring casks to transport whisky (Well, just any casks I think). All that with lots of humour, he even chose ‘Stupid cask' as the bottler's name. Good one! Let's try it now"¦ Colour: gold - apricot. Nose: it's perfectly all right, and even nice! Not that far from the Cadenhead's, just rounder and with added hints of red fruits (raspberries, blackcurrant) and apricot jam. There may well be a little iodine in the background but I'm not too sure. An enjoyable nose, for sure, but it should all happen on the palate. Mouth: let's go straight to the point: you have to like salt to like this. Actually, it does work and it does remind me of the infamous Loch Scainam Tlam we made a few years ago, blending various malts with 5% water from the Loch Indal (please read its name reversely). There's quite some fruit jam, apricot pie and very ripe melon and most amazingly, the salt never completely takes control of the whole. Kind of a mixture of fruit spirit with salted liquorice and salted buttered toffee, in fact. Again, that works"¦ until the finish! Indeed, the whisky slowly ‘vanishes' as usual but the salt remains on your tongue and on your lips for a very, very long time"¦ It's a rather weird feeling but no problems at all, unless you had planned to try other whiskies just after this one. I didn't, I had been warned ;-) . Anyway, I think they did this the best they could, and I doubt any other herring-finished whisky would ever be better than this one. Now, this first may also be a last"¦ 83 points, and I'm not exaggerating at all. (and thanks, Pit).

Besøgte her i onsdags d.30 maj Cadenhead's i Berlin, var på jagt efter lidt Inchgower både med og uden "sherry".
Klaus P. er jo en hyggelig fætter, fik smagt lidt forskelligt og endte med at købe en 14 års 46% Inchgower lagret kun på ex-bourbon fade, godt valg.

Whisky livet kunne jo ikke gå videre uden at smage Bruichladdich, nå..nej jeg mener Fishky, fadene den havde lagret på prydede jo indgangen i den grad, så man blev temmelig nyfigen først bourbon fadet, så sherry fadet og til sidst sildefadet der først havde været brugt til rødvin, inden silde showet.
Fik en god snak med "pinki" om forsøget, som de fleste er klar over er en ren PROTEST mod alverdens forskellige fad finisher af single malt Whisky, nu er det ved at være nok er "pinki's" mening.
Smagte først før sild, en glimrende Bruichladdich, og derefter silde finishen, spændingen steg, hvad fanden ville du opleve? det var ihvert tilfælde ikke julefrokosten's hvide eller krydrede det smagte af, tværtimod bredte der sig en smag af syntes jeg en mærkelig sødme hurtigt efterfuldt af en saltagtig prikken på tungen.
På ingen måde en "grim" oplevelse, skulle jeg give en karakter efter Jim M. skalaen så omkring 8o points.
For at få den fulde silde oplevelse, skal den nok starte på first fill sildetønde i 8 år og så lidt portvins fad, og derefter et år på sherry fad.
Hvilken julefrokost i år 2017.
Nå spøj tilside jeg spørger ligesom Klaus i Berlin stop nu det vilde finish race. :?

Vores norske venner har set at Stupidcask.com igen har fået en "tosset" idé.

Denne gang har de, så vidt mit tyske rækker til, lagt tørv ned i fadet.
