    Αν δεν με απατά η μνήμη μού όλα τα Tennessee Whiskey πρέπει να έχουν περάσει από Lincoln County Process εκτός του Prichard's Tennessee Whiskey που έχει πάρει εξαίρεση για ιστορικούς λόγους. Αυτό έγινε μετά από συστηματική άσκηση πίεσης από το JD, αν και για την ώρα εκκρεμούν οι ενστάσεις άλλων εταιριών και μικροαποστακτηριων Χρήση Pot Still?

  5. Heaven Hill Brands' Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey - Product Launch 21 March 2019 | By: Lucy Britner www.just-drinks.com Heaven Hill Brands' Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Heaven Hill Brands' Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Category - American whiskey, Bourbon, 50% abv Available - From this month Location - US Price - SRP US$130 per 75cl bottle Heaven Hill Brands has released the Spring 2019 iteration of its Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. The expression is comprised of barrels laid down in September 2005, and it was bottled in February of 2019. The 2019 release is the third in the series. "As was the case for the past editions, this edition's tax strip, which has always been a signature of transparency on bottled-in-bond products, will disclose when the liquid was produced and bottled," the distillery said. The whiskey, which is available on allocation, carries an RRP of US$130. "It meets the strict requirements of a bottled-in-bond: the product of a single distillery from a single distilling season, aged a minimum of four years, and bottled at 100 proof or 50% alcohol by volume," Heaven Hill added.

Also available online Price - See below The founder of Georgetown Trading Co has created two American whiskey iterations that honour James E Pepper, a whiskey distiller in Kentucky during the 19th Century. Amir Peay has partnered with Spirit Cartel to secure UK distribution for: James E. Pepper 1776 Straight Rye Whiskey 92 Proof, 46% abv, RRP of GBP45 (US$60) per bottle James E. Pepper 1776 Straight Rye Whiskey Barrel Proof, 57.3% abv, GBP55 per bottle Both will be released across Europe and Asia, as well as Australia, in the coming months.

Operations ceased in 1958 and Peay has restarted operations at one of the facilities. The American whiskey segment of the spirits category is enjoying impressive growth rates in its domestic market. Volumes have jumped from 17.6m nine-litre cases in 2013, to 21.3m in 2017, according to GlobalData. By 2022, American whiskey volumes at home are forecast to hit 27.2m cases, a near-55% rise on ten years prior.

    Tariffs to blame as US whiskey slowdown increases - Distilled Spirits Council Andy Morton21 March 2019 www.just-drinks.com American whiskey declines caused by retaliatory trade tariffs are accelerating, the US trade group for spirits has warned. American whiskey is at the centre of a global trade dispute According to figures from The Distilled Spirits Council released today, US whiskey exports dropped 11% in value in the second-half of last year compared to a 23% gain in H1. The council said the numbers were "worrisome" and blamed tariffs on whiskey imposed in some regions last year. Countries including Canada and Mexico continue to impose retaliatory tariffs on US spirits imports (10% and 25%, respectively) in response to the Trump administration's steel and aluminium tariffs, which were introduced last year. Overall in 2018, total American whiskey exports still managed a 5% gain to a record US$1.18bn. However, this was a "significant deceleration" from the annual growth rate of 16% in 2017, the council said. The declines were most marked in the EU, which accounts for 60% of US whiskey sales. First half growth of 33% on the continent turned into a 13.4% decline in the second half. "It is clear that the retaliatory tariffs are having a significant and growing impact on American whiskey exports, which had been a bright spot for US agriculture exports," said council president & CEO Chris Swonger. "The damage is now accelerating, and this is collateral damage from ongoing global trade disputes." Some whiskey producers have already highlighted the cost of the tariffs. This month, Brown-Forman CFO Jane Morreau said the estimated annualised cost to the company of increased tariffs is set to total around US$125m.

    Στήθος η μπούτι; Jameson or Laphroaig?🤔😉😋
  10. Τελικά είναι η βραδιά της ηλικίας... πέρασαν κιόλας 30 χρονάκια από τα 90ς 🤔😳😝
  11. Και ακόμα πιο μπέρδεμα η νομοθεσία τούς 😝
  12. Ναι απλά αν είναι τόσο πρόσφατο δεν θα το θεωρούσα "συλλεκτικό" και δεν θα έβλεπα κάποια πρόσθετη αξία πέραν αυτή τής λιανικής και αυτής μειωμένης, αλλιώς Ποιός ο λόγος κάποιος να το αγοράσει από την δευτερογενή αγορά;
  13. Χμμμ Ναι έχεις δίκιο τότε δεν νομίζω ότι το Royal Salute είναι τόσο παλιό η αλλαγή από 75cl σε 70cl έγινε το 1990 δεν νομίζω ότι το 10 χρόνια πριν η Chivas θα έκανε εμφιάλωση 70cl... @giorgos καμία ιδέα;
  14. Μα και φυσικά δεν τίθεται θέμα αδικίας φίλε απλά νομίζω ότι, μια και δεν είμαι υπέρ της βαθμολογίας, είναι καθαρή περίπτωση που υποδεικνύει το πρόβλημα βαθμολόγησης (ειδικά 10/10) για παράδειγμα το Singleton με 7 βαθμούς είναι απειροελάχιστα υποδεέστερο του Royal Lochnagar ενώ νομίζω θα συμφωνήσεις ότι δεν τίθεται θέμα επιλογής ανάμεσα στα διό. Όσο για το θέμα επιείκειας Ναι έχεις απόλυτο δίκιο είναι θέμα προσωπικού γούστου 🥃
  15. Είς Αύριον τα σπουδαία 😉
