喝完第一輪,大家繼續鳥獸散,多半的人都回到園遊會場去玩,我繼續進去聽音樂喝酒去,週日的下午多了很多人,感覺熱鬧很多。



Ardmore 1981/1995 (40%, G&M, Licenced bottling)

N: Metalic, clear peat with tropical fruit, lemon zest.

接下來是晚餐時間, 今天這間餐廳做了些應景的愛爾蘭菜, 不過上菜很慢, 我們倒是利用時間聊了很多, 席間幾個威士忌酒廠主人都過來聊天, 我們約定一定要在台灣碰面,把澳洲威士忌介紹給台灣人. 多數人都還要在過一晚, 他們打算隔天早上喝最後一輪後再離開. Craig幫我找了一個朋友讓我搭便車去機場旅館, 不過離開前他很堅持我要喝完最後一輪裡面的兩隻老酒再走.

C: 90 points. dilute really help. 好強勁的一支酒, 聽Craig解說才知道這看起來像是原廠裝瓶的酒其實是自愛丁頓集團時代的Lang brothers裝瓶(現在的酒廠主人), 又多學了一點!



喝到這裡, 真的有點醉了, 還好有一對夫婦載我去機場, 機場的希爾頓設備不錯, 不過checking就已經是凌晨一點半了, 有點擔心趕不上早上七點的飛機, 睡的很淺, 結束了這很充實但是很累的一次旅程 。

  • 也許是巧合,不過看來似乎還是這些熟悉的酒廠的表現比較好,慣性?
  • 也許心裡面確實存在一些偏見吧! 當然與這系列都是重泥煤或是重雪莉有很大的關係!
