Pommerscher Greif Batch 06 – whisky review

Pommerscher Greif

Pommerscher Greif is a German blend … and here I have to stop for a moment. The label shows a following statement: „Single Malt & Grain Blended Whisky”

Seriously? They could simply write „blend”, but presumably they would have to lower the price a bit (and the term „Single Malt” itself catches the eye and the liquor can be sold for a bit more money doesn’t it?). This strange term means no more than the fact that malt whisky comes exclusively from a single distillery. The rest is ordinary grain Whisky from column stills.

This is not a NAS. The bottle carries an age statement: „guaranteed aging above 1096 days”. Mercy! The calculator informed me that it was 3 years and one day.

Johnnie Walker Black Label – whisky review

Johnnie Walker Black Label

For most of us (or for at least few), Johnnie Walker Black Label was the first whisky to drink without the addition of coke or ice cubes. It appears, that it’s quite good value for money whisky, even though it’s only a blend.

It’s also slightly peated whisky. Not everyone likes it, but thoses smoky whiskies have a lot of fans (I’m also one of them) Continue reading „Johnnie Walker Black Label – whisky review”
