Balvenie 15 Year Single Barrel-Life Cafe 983

By Andy “McMills” (until November 11th, after which time it’s Mills to you)

Balvenie Scotch Tasting Event isThursday, November 10, 2011, from 8-10pm at Life Cafe 983.

Balvenie 15yr Single Barrel

Single barrel, what a fine term. There is much confusion about the difference between the term single malt and single barrel. To be classified as a single malt whiskey, it must be whiskey made at the same time and aged for the same time, with the same year’s malt. This can then be blended together to create a consistent product over the years. For single barrel whiskies, however, it’s the same criteria as above, but without the privilege to mix barrels. This is done only by the malt master who chooses casks worthy of the year’s Single Barrel’s end product. Balvenie makes only 350 of these bottles per year. It’s very, very good to get your hands on one of these. As far as the taste, my opinion is this version is more robust and complex than its younger predecessors, despite the fact that the only barrels used were oak. The more time in the barrel, the more characteristics the whiskey picks up from the barrel. I should know; I’ve been in the barrel for years!

Looking forward to seeing you on November 10th for a free taste of these fine Scotches.


Balvenie 14 Year Caribbean Cask-Life Cafe 983

By Andy “McMills”, the Whiskey Dude

Attention: The Balvenie Tasting Event has been pushed back to Thursday, November 10th, from 8 to 10 pm at Life Cafe 983.

Balvenie 14yr Caribbean Cask Scotch

Okay, I was almost as confused as you. I’m now not only the Beer Dude but also the Whiskey Dude. I accept that gracious title for our upcoming Balvenie Scotch Tasting event. Just don’t expect me in a kilt.

I’m not entirely sure why they beat around the bush with the categorization of this one, but substitute “Caribbean” for “Rum Barrel.” A few years ago, Balvenie released a 17-year-old version of this product with amazing success, to which the word “rum” was attached. They started the process by aging the whisky for a full 14 years in oak whisky casks, and finished it in used rum barrels, The end product is rich, rounded and malty.

Re-mark your calendar for November 10th at 8 to 10 pm. Sorry, sorry, we expected it to be on November 5th, but the New York supervisor for Balvanie got called away for something urgent so we’re doing it a week later. No bother, it gives us more time to increase your knowledge about these fine Scotches. And it doesn’t prevent you from coming in beforehand to get yourself a taste either.

Anyway, what the hell!! If they don’t turn up we’ll just drink their scotch. So, get yourself in here now!
