Liquorfang 方酒坊 - Benrinnes 18 Year Old 52.0%
這次挑選的是在波本桶內熟成超過 18 年的 Benrinnes，酒廠以往風格一向帶有肉感與硫味（meaty & sulphury），而且大部分原酒均為調和威士忌之用。方店主指出這桶 Benrinnes 不但沒有如火藥般的味道，反而有點點煙燻、煙肉般的氣味，同時帶有豐富的蜜糖香及花香，猶如帶輕泥煤風格的愛爾蘭威士忌，討好舒適而不失層次。
根據方店主所指，這一年間已嘗試超過 20 個樣本，但沒有任何一個符合他「價廉物美」的選桶原則，反而這桶 Benrinnes 讓他喜出望外，一喝下去已呈現了神秘而高貴的紫色，亦使他聯想起被喻為最成功的電影原聲大碟之一的「Purple Rain」，值得一提的是該部同名電影亦是主唱 Prince 的半自傳式電影。
After waiting for more than a year, this monotone series from Liquorfang is finally back!
This is the 3rd bottle for the series, and it is a Benrinnes which aged in Bourbon Barrel for more than 18 Years. Benrinnes is famous of its meaty/sulphury new make character and due to its demand by blenders, Benrinnes has never become a front-line single malt.
Mr. Fang told us that this Benrinnes does not contain any gunpowder or sulphury flavour, but it does have hints of smokiness and flavours of bacon, with lots of honey and floral notes. It is similar with lightly-peated Irish whiskey - elegant and complex.
Mr. Fang pointed out that he had already tried more than 20 samples last year, however, none of them fulfilled his will, yet this Benrinnes was outstanding and surprised him a lot. After a tiny sip, “purple” popped out of his mind, and reminded him one of the most successful original movie soundtrack - “Purple Rain”.
If you would like to know what style of whisky Mr. Fang is fond of, seize this opportunity and take it home.
