Reviews y puntajes 2010 Malt Advocate

Jhon Hansell el famoso catador y editor de la revista Malt Advocate publicó su listado del 2010 donde se seleccionan los mejores whiskies del mundo por la revista.

La lista es larga y les adjunto el link para que la vean. Sin embargo les publico los 2 mejores blended por encima de 95 puntos.


Los puntajes de clasificación utilizados son los siguientes:

A classic! All components are balanced appropriately, with the complexity and character expected in a classic.

Outstanding! One of the best for its style. Distinctive.

Good to very good. Plenty of character and no identifiable flaws. Worth seeking out.

Average. No unique qualities. Flaws possible.

95 The Last Drop, 1960 vintage, 48 year old, 52% Price: $2,000.00
A 12 year old blended whisky was created in 1972 consisting of 70 different malt whiskies and 12 grain whiskies. The blend was then placed in three sherry casks, where it was matured for the next 36 years (highly irregular, to say the least). The quality of the sherry casks is quite evident, as is the whisky's age. There's substantial malt content here, too. These three factors, along with the wide range of malt and grain whiskies, combine to create one of the finest blended Scotch whiskies I have ever tasted. It's dark, mysterious, and enormously complex, with notes of molasses, fig cake, dried fruit, tobacco, dark chocolate, old pot still rum, and polished leather, finishing with lingering cinnamon and mint. There's no sign of this whisky getting tired at all. I am pleased they bottled it at natural strength and didn't water it down to 40% or 43% abv, which could have ruined it.
(Allocation information: There's a total of 1.347 bottles, of which only 350 are being imported to the U.S. They are available exclusively at Binny's Beverage Depot (Chicago), Park Avenue Liquors (New York), and Wally's (Los Angeles)).

95 Chivas, 18 year old, 40% Price: $70.00
An essay in balance on both the aroma and palate. Silky layers of delicate sweetness (honeyed vanilla, caramel, light toffee) permeate through clean, delicate fruit (citrus, peach, currant), and subtle, complex dried spice. Clean finish, with a hint of dark chocolate. A very versatile, very drinkable blend which suits most moods and occasions. Indeed, a benchmark blended scotch.
