玩家的圈子真的很小, 一大早跟著Serge他們晃進來會場, 他們一進來就望三樓的會議室跑, 我還以為他們想聽什麼演講, 糊裡糊塗的跟進去才發現是另外一個德國當地的有名團體Regensburger Whisy-Club辦的tasting. 當場有點給他尷尬, 因為我沒有報名…不過Maniacs的名號還是很好用的, 當場幫我打個招呼, 繳個錢就進去了.在這裡試了五支酒. 其中那支Glenfarclas 1968是Luc裝瓶的那支, 喝過了就不再紀錄.
 
90      Dallas Dhu 4.1981/2.2005(53.3%, Whiksyfiar bottling, Bourbon Hogshead#424, 164b.)
Golden color. Quite nice fruity nose. A little bit woody. Nice palate. Medium body. Salty. Long finish. Very nice Dallas Dhu, enjoyable and powerful.
 
87       Ben Nevis 34yo 1966/2000 (49,8%, OB, cask 3663, 158bt)
Golden, very oil. Lot’s of peat, some marine charcters, a little bit orange.  Medium body, medium finish. Not bad but the MARA one is much better.
 
88       Talisker 25yo 1952/1977 The Queen's Silver Jubilee (70proof, OB, Cube shaped)
Golden. Old malt feel. Some peat but not that good feel.  Quite weak in palate, watering. A little bit gone. Not my style.
 
89       Bowmore 31yo 1968/1999 (44%, Signatory, millennium edition, cask 3820, 252bt)
Yellow, very nice nose, very Bowmore, seaweed and peat. Thin in palate. Wood.
 
回到會場, 還是跑回去跟Bert 聊天.  他除了對Ardbeg狂熱之外, 最近超級迷日本威士忌, 請他推薦了一支Japanese Oak, 不過後來查了一下似乎是120.1才是, 120.2沒有特別紀錄桶子的種類

 
85      Hakushu 14yo 1988/2004 (62.9%, SMWS 120.2)
Strange oak/woodiness. Hint of salt.

 
91       Ardbeg 26yo 1974/2000 (50%, Kingsbury, 278 Btl.)
Nice peat, Ardbeg. 有點番紅花的感覺? Very Enjoyable. 附帶說一下, 問到這一支要800歐元, 吃人!

 
91  Springbank 8yo (70 proof, Glens Extra, crica 1950s)
眼尖的人應該有發現Serge喝了很多這間裝瓶廠的酒, 多半都是較早期的裝瓶. 其實第二天我的狀況並不好, 也不知道為什麼, 這支酒沒寫紀錄, 也沒裝sample回來, 就在那裡喝掉了, 應該是很好喝吧!
 
91  Highland Park 19yo 1986/2005 (55.3%, OB for Maxxium Holl., c. #2793, 1120 h)
這支酒是Olivier特別叫我試的, 一瓶小瓶裝的酒, 他還叫我有機會要多買幾瓶留下來喝.
