Masterclass Fujimi/Nikka/Mackmyra/Hellyers Road/Glendalough/Kavalan

Hi everyone!

Here is a little feedback from my last masterclass at the O’Flaherty’s irish pub in Namur on the theme “Whiskeys of the World” (organized by Whiskey-Select). Some options were available for some whiskeys so I will only talk about the ones I’ve tasted (logic eh!). Once again, I would like to thank them all for the explanations provided and the price they asked for!

25 € for 6 glasses including a 5 € voucher for a bottle purchase or a drink in the pub. If you’re in Belgium, do not hesitate to register for the next special tasting “Road of the peat” scheduled for the end of January (well, you have to love peat, necessarily… Otherwise take a good beer, like the McDouglas).

Macallan Quest

Macallan Quest

Today I will talk about the Macallan Quest (40%). This whisky, developed for the Macallan travel retail collection, has been aged in 4 different types of casks: old American and European sherry casks, American bourbon casks and small hogsheads. This whisky is a tribute to those people who travel thousands of miles each year in quest of the best casks for their whisky. So, does it worth the trip? :p

Aberlour A’Bunadh Batch 49

Aberlour A'Bunadh

If there is a real must-have bottle when you appreciate whisky, especially cask strenght, it’s the Aberlour A’Bunadh. Non cold filtered, aged in Oloroso sherry casks and bottled directly out of the barrel, it is a full of character Speyside that always pleases, whatever the batch. This batch #49 is nevertheless one of the best (at least of those that I’ve tasted). Here come the tasting notes 😀
