KILCHOMAN Machir Bay 46%

Aside

We consider the latest batch of MACHIR BAY to be the finest. Less dry than the previous version, it features greater maturity and balance. A slightly bitter finish drawing on cold tobacco, which we didn’t find displeasing, has been given a more liquorice feel. The marine freshness has been preserved. An Islay turned classic that has been exclusively distributed on the French market and in most European countries by La Maison du Whisky since this farmhouse distillery was founded in 2005. The 2013 version of Kilchoman Machir Bay is a single malt full of character, characterised by notes of ash and smoke, candied citrus fruits, earth, malted barley and pepper.

Style: Smoky and elegant. Nose: Mellow and harmonious. Stewed fruits. Aromas of peat. Palate: Full-bodied. Notes of fruit and vanilla. Finish: Long and persistent, with notes characteristic of Islay whiskies.

BENROMACH 10 YEAR OLD 43%
Single Malt, Scotland / Speyside 70cl Ref: 15349

We have a weakness for this lightly peated Speyside, inspired by the style of the single malts produced in this region before the Second World War. Launched in September 2009 by the Urquhart family, the owners of the distillery and Gordon & MacPhail, it has the finesse and fruitiness of the Speyside single malts combined with the smoky notes of an Islay. Exclusively imported and distributed on the French market by La Maison du Whisky, there is nothing in Scotland that really compares to this very seductive single malt, with its rich aromatic palette and range of flavours.

Sourcing its water from the neighbouring Romach hills, this single malt is the result of a blend of bourbon and sherry casks. The blend then rests for twelve months in oloroso sherry casks, of which only Gordon & MacPhail know the secret. A peated version worthy of a southern Islay.

WHISKY DE TABLE 3 years old Blended Malt – 60th Anniversary LMDW 40%

Aside

To create his ‘Whisky de Table’, John Glaser first travelled to Kentucky to select barrels directly from the Buffalo Trace distillery, bringing them back to Scotland and using them to age new make spirits from four of his favourite distilleries. After just three years of maturation, a series of tests resulted in this blended malt to be enjoyed among friends in the same way one might share a traditional table wine. Slightly smoked, the ‘Whisky de Table’ perfectly embodies the Compass Box philosophy, in that it breaks all the tasting rules. But be warned: behind the accessible appearance of this new masterpiece, designed in celebration of La Maison du Whisky’s 60th anniversary, hides layer after layer of olfactory and gustatory surprises, for each to discover in his or her own way.

Profile: Fresh and refined, the nose is herbaceous and slightly smoky. It fills out with notes of lemon and vanilla. As it opens up, it becomes floral and spicy. The palate is fruity (pear, melon) and oily. Very harmonious, it becomes increasingly heady. The finish is spring-like and fruity (strawberry).

TASTING NOTE

  • Appearance : very pale gold with glints of green.
  • Nose : refreshing, refined. Notes of freshly cut grass and smoke take centre stage in the nose, equally characterised by lemony and vanilla-scented notes. It becomes aniseed and mentholated upon airing. The smoke is left to linger at the bottom of the aromatic palette like a signature. The more it opens up, the more it gains in complexity, becoming floral and spicy.
  • Palate : generous, smooth. The attack on the palate is incredibly refreshing, simultaneously milky (almond), oily (walnut), herbaceous (chlorophyll) and fruity (pear, melon). The mid-palate is spiced (star anise), with a subtle hint of liquorice and chocolate. The overall effect is one of intense cohesiveness. It then gradually becomes headier and warmer.
  • Overall : smooth, well-balanced. This spring-like concoction is evocative of a field of barley gently swaying in a refreshing breeze. Infused with a gentle, malted mellowness, a delicately fruity side emerges (raspberry, strawberry). The retro-nasal olfaction is characterised by notes of undergrowth (moss, lichen). The empty glass pays homage to the malted barley.

KI NO BI

Aside

 

The Kyoto Distillery, founded in 2015, has just released its very first product titled KI NO BI Kyoto Dry Gin. The name KI NO BI (季の美) translates to “The beauty of the seasons.” It’s a fitting name for Kyoto’s first artisan gin. Kyoto, Japan’s ancient capital, is renowned for its natural beauty, cultural traditions, and a long history of artisan crafts such as pottery, kimono fabric, and the brewing of sake.

 

KI NO BI is made from a rice-based spirit and high-quality local botanicals from Kyoto and other parts of Japan. Key ingredients that give KI NO BI its “Japanese accent” include yuzu (Japanese citrus fruit), green tea from Uji, ginger root, hinoki wood chips (Japanese cypress), shiso leaves, bamboo, and sansho berries (Japanese peppercorn). Water from Fushimi in southern Kyoto City, famous for its purity and the brewing of sake, is used to cut this spirit down to a bottling strength of 45.7%.

Legend has it that the Finnish find inspiration while taking a sauna. And this is precisely where the idea for the Kyrö distillery germinated in 2012.

Kyrö was born of the desire to acquire a disused factory that used to produce the most popular cheese in Finland but had been closed for five years. After two years of red tape, Rye Rye finally came into existence in 2014. As its name suggests, rye is showcased here. All of the ingredients used by Kyrö distillery are produced locally.

Founded by the King Car Group, Kavalan did not hesitate to call on the services of the best experts in the industry, declaring their intention from the outset to make a whisky of exceptional quality. It was thus with the help of Jim Swann that the distillery produced the first drops of its new-make on 11 March 2006 and brought its first whisky to the market in December 2008. By selecting the best barrels, Kavalan managed to produce a range of single casks (sherry, bourbon and port) in 2009, only three years after it began production, and has already won numerous medals at a variety of international competitions.

Aside

Buffalo Trace, the emblematic bourbon from the distillery of the same name, is a classical American whiskey. Created in 1999, this Kentucky Straight bourbon, produced from a mash bill of maize (80%), rye (10%) and barley (10%), is a blend of some thirty barrels of the distillery’s new make spirit aged between 8 and 12 years old.

Inspired by his predecessor, Blanton’s creator took advantage of the end of cask rotation, and decided to allow each cask to express its own unique flavour profile. This is why Blanton’s different expressions are able to offer a succulent and precise range of cereal, spice, candied fruit, citrus fruit and floral notes.

A genuine symbol of the distillery’s values, Armorik showcases both the quality of its expertise and its love of the Breton terroir: not only are the single malts all aged in Brittany but they also often contain salty notes as well as notes of salted caramel and cooked apples that recall the culinary heritage and traditional alcohol production of the area. These single malts are made from both malted and unmalted barley. A sign of recognised expertise, in February 2014, Warenghem won the gold medal at the “Concours Général Agricole” for their Armorik Classic.

Produced from buckwheat (the famous saracen), whiskies from the Eddu brand are unique and stand out from other whiskies for their taste that is like no other. Rounder, less full-bodied and lighter, the different Eddu whiskies are all marked by floral, fruity, spicy and nutty notes. Distilled twice in Charente stills, aged in casks from Cognac and the forest of Brocéliande, and gently reduced over many years in casks, these eaux de vie are produced using a combination of French and Scottish techniques. These whiskies are extremely innovative and at the same time remain faithful to ancient Breton traditions.

It produces single malts produced from Swedish barley and sources its water from an underground spring fed by the hills of Valboåsen. While part of its whisky stock is left to mature in 100 litre casks, the Mackmyra distillery also uses first-fill ex-bourbon barrels that, once filled, are stocked in a warehouse 50 metres underground in the “Bodäs” mine. It also uses new Swedish oak casks from a forest located on the island of Visingsö, planted over 160 years ago to provide a source of wood for the construction of military navy boats.

The largest micro-distillery in Australia (producing 100,000 litres per year), Hellyers Road was founded in 1997. Located on the island of Tasmania, which is known more for its wines, salmon and lush green landscapes, the distillery owes its existence to a passion for whisky shared by the owner of a milk cooperative and a professional distiller: together they decided to create a new “milk”, which was malted and in a rather more Scottish style! Distilled for the first time in 1999, the quality of the whisky was quickly appreciated by connoisseurs, and is now one of the islands best exports, and among Australia’s most well-known whiskies.

Bought by Long John Distillers in 1981, the Coffey stills were subsequently dismantled. Although the majority of its whisky is aged in ex-sherry casks, some ex-bourbon cask bottlings have recently appeared on the independent market. It’s worth noting that the distillery was mothballed for six years at the end of the 1970s, and then again in 1984 and from 1986 to 1989.

Santa Teresa is a light rum. Its production begins with the fermentation of molasses, either in batches (between one and two days) or through continuous fermentation over 15 hours (a process co-developed with Bacardi), giving it a must that is four times more pure. These different musts can be distilled in column stills to obtain a spirit with only the desired congeners, or in pot stills using artisan distillation methods. Ageing is carried out in vats of up to 18,000 litres or using the solera method. Recognised internationally for its quality and originality, “Ron de Vénézuela” has become one of the top ACs in the world of rum.

Since 1931, three generations have succeeded one after the other at the head of the distillery, preserving the skills and expertise of the greatest Martinique tradition. Grégory Vernant-Neisson, in his early forties and currently at the head of the distillery, describes their Martinique Agricultural Rum AOC: “The most important thing to understand about Martinique rum from is that it’s produced directly from sugar cane juice, and not molasses.” Behind the Neisson philosophy lies a great respect for the value of the land and its properties. Because Martinique, with its volcanic soil and climate (particularly in the north of the island where the distillery is located) has a particularly strong influence on the aromatic palette of Neisson Rums and their unique flavours.

Even before he earned his title of ‘Professor’, Cornelius Ampleforth was known as a slightly eccentric inventor. He dreamed of running a huge laboratory filled with vials, test tubes, botanicals and spirits. And in the autumn of 2011 his dreams became a reality with the release of his ‘Bathtub Gin’. The tireless professor’s imagination has continued to produce a stream of concoctions, such as a cold-distilled 91.2% ABV absinthe and a cask-aged gin. Nothing appears to deter him from completing his experiments. Using a wide range of tools and resources, he revives the spirits of the past, much to the delight of discerning palates and connoisseurs.

The Summer version is a very dry, lively gin with characteristic flavours of blood orange and bergamot blossom, with a delicious final note of ginger.

Forest Dry Gins are unique in the world thanks to their special flavours, characteristics and aesthetic. The best illustration of the artisanal mastery that goes into crafting these gins remains their subtly cloudy aspect, triggered by a high percentage of essential oils produced by distilling seasonal fruits and plants.”

Ilegal

Aside

The Guatemalan company, ‘Ilegal’ takes its name from the fact that it employed somewhat unconventional methods to import its first “artisanal” mezcals. At that time the best producers of artisanal mezcal did not have any official certification; it was therefore in theory illegal to export them. Hence the founders of Ilegal opted to import the mezcal on a clandestine basis. The company is now thankfully legal, and the Ilegal brand continues to select mezcals from traditional producers who have organic certification and whose mezcal has a unique aromatic profile: the notes of agave take precedence over the notes of smoke, rather than the other way around.
ILEGAL

Produced entirely from Espadin agave grown in the Tlocolula region, Ilegal Mezcal is distilled twice in copper stills. This classic version, Joven, is bottled using traditional methods, and without being aged.

Montelobos

Aside

Montelobos Joven is the result of one man’s vision and passion for mezcal, namely Ivan Saldana. Situated in Santiago Matatlan in the Oaxaca region, this distillery uses only the Espadin agave variety. This totally authentic and classic mezcal is very subtle and full of nuances; hints of earthy, almost peaty notes can also be detected. Its aromatic and lively palette is above all centred around the taster. From the onset, the initial nose sets the tone: lemony, salty and peppery. Then follows a delicate earthy note with delicious fragrances of agave. Spices become more pronounced (nutmeg, cloves). The palate is unmistakably earthy, almost peaty. A remarkably forthright mezcal that continues to intensify throughout the tasting experience.
