談酒標設計,如果是喜愛葡萄酒的朋友,必先想起年年請來神級藝術家合作的 Château Mouton Rothschild,其實不少威士忌的酒標,也花盡心思,堪值細賞,例如意大利裝瓶商 Samaroli 的酒標別出心裁,酒廠介紹文字滿有詩意想像,未開瓶,已讓人充滿期待...

Springbank and Glengyle 雲頂及格蘭蓋爾

While the Islay region is hot nowadays and the Highland and Speyside are crammed with distilleries today, but it is the Campbeltown which was once the heart of whisky industry in the history. It was once brilliant and after all those ups and downs, it is great to see them still playing a part in the industry...

 

近年艾雷島威士忌風頭強勁,高地及斯佩塞則蒸餾廠雲集,但其實在歷史上的真正威士忌重鎮該是坎培爾鎮(Campbeltown)。曾經輝煌,不過起跌向來無情兼無常,尚好血脈仍在,好東西能戰勝歲月,現在看來,並非必然,也帶著幾分握腕的慶幸...

Go grab it, Whisky Addicts! 沉迷去到一個點,就去搶吧!

I have kept writing on the brands, blending, distillation ... so let’s talk something beyond the scope this time. Last month, a bottle of Brora distilled in 1972, which is the most aged expression ever, was up for auction in Hong Kong and was finally sold at HK$ 147,000...

不停地在寫品牌啊,調配,蒸餾啊……今次說些無關痛癢的小故事。上月,一瓶於 1972 年蒸餾的布朗接(Brora)在港拍賣,是至今供拍賣,該廠最陳年作品,成交價為 147,000 港元。這類關廠長陳年威士忌,當然有價有市,不過要賣得好價錢,除了是因為酒廠結業、漫長陳年,還可以是因為沉船,還有電影...

The Aestheticism and Mathematics of Blending 調配的美學與數學

It’s natural to think that ‘Single Malt’ is really ‘single’ and require no blending throughout the making process. Actually blending is crucial to both single malt and blended whiskies, and to be more concise, it requires not only a sense of aesthetics but also a mindset of mathematics. A small discrepancy does matter in the final result.

或許因常稱單一麥芽及調和型威士忌,總會讓人有錯覺,認為單一麥芽威 士忌是不用調配的。其實,大多單一麥芽威士忌跟調和威士忌一樣,也經 過調配,才能成就,而調和威士忌的精彩之作,也非易求。調配技藝,既 是味覺的美學,也是營運的數學,多一點,少一點,就是差一點的了。

Whisky Archaeology 威士忌考古學

It sounds quite romantic for such an archaeological process which give re-born to The Lost Distillery Whisky, which trace the DNA of the flavor profile of mothballed distilleries a century ago through the study of archive, literature and interpretation. The project is reminiscent of the movie "Jurassic Park", fortunately they are not going to engrave any dinosaurs but whisky, which is charming and won’t give you a bite.

The Lost Distillery Company 透過考察、文獻及研究,追溯已經關廠一世紀的威士忌風味 DNA,復刻再推出,聽上去,其實是挺浪漫的考古過程。不過,立時聯想起電影「侏羅紀公園」,還好的是,他們要復刻的不是恐龍,而是威士忌,不咬人,且十分迷人。

There Is Nothing Permanent Except Change 變幻原是永恆

To us Hong Kongers, we are aware and disturbed by the fact that something is going to change in this March. Yes the world is changing. In the world of whisky, the classic blended whisky we all familiar with is revitalized with unprecedented content...

 

今年三月,香港人應該好難集中精神,充滿政治味道的月份。世局在變,故這期我們談變,舊瓶裝新酒,經典調和威士忌品牌出地區系列,新鮮刺激,世事說不準,測不定,唯一可以肯定的是,夜深人靜,一杯威士忌能鎮定神經,特別是在三月的最後一個星期天...
