Polish Blend - Dark Whisky

Postby reinder » Wed Sep 10, 2008 10:13 pm

In the subject "Fruity whiskies" Eric explains us he's tasting a Polish whisky called "Dark Whisky"...
I googled for some minutes tonight and found the following info including an image:

Same forums are already discussing where it is from...
Check it out here http://www.polishforums.com/this_dark_whisky_scottish_polish-8_26892_0.html,
and here http://www.celticmalts.com/journal.asp?cat=77&hierarchy=10%7C4%7C9

And the Malt Maniacs also tasted this "strange" whisky:
"We finished the Cadenhead's session with an oddity; the Dark Whisky 3yo (40%, OB, Poland).
Alexander spends a lot of time in Poland and brought this one over as a little surprise. Well, this was really freaky stuff that reminded me a lot of Japanese sake and rice crackers. It wasn't nearly as awful as I'd expected and I finally went with a score of 49 points - just 1 point short of being enjoyable. Interesting stuff, though."

The image I found... (Eric: Is this your mysterious bottling?)

Yes it is!The label states"blended with finest selection","Scotch whisky" and "blended Scotch whisky,distilled and matured in Scotland."The importer /blender?is V&S Luksusowa Zielona Gòra S.A.
The color is amber and the nose gives grain and citrus,a wee little smoke.
Taste,a harsh alcoholic taste,young.Dry-ish(not unpleasant)grain,wood,molasse,tones of butter.A soft and short finish.40% abv.
Not a superb blend but it ain`t a Vat`69 either,average would be the word,some surprising things to find in a whisky from Poland.The search goes on ;) .If ever in Leiden you`re invited to have a dram to try it.
Eric.
world peace trough whisky
