BRUICHLADDICH OCTOMORE 9.1
ISLAY SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY
Distilled in 2012 from 100% Scottish barley, the 09.1 is matured full-term in top-tier ex-American whiskey casks.Ex - Jim Beam (51%), Jack Daniels (26%), Clermont (15%), Old Grand-Dad (8%)Matured entirely on Islay.
Gorgeous, mouth-filling creaminess (madam); surprisingly gentle, and for all of the flavour components: vanilla led, butthere’s a brightness about it rather than a sickliness; black tea, more Lapsang Souchong now. The velvety texture lingerssomewhat: it’s slightly cloying, it’s still filling – right at the end. A lovely umami note, balancing out. But the flavoursare mellow, they’re not bold.

RYOMA 7 YEARS OAK CASK
Ryoma is a Japanese rum made on the island of Shikoku (the southernmost of the archipelago). It is a 7 year old purecane juice, aged in oak barrels.
This is not a rum for everyone. The aroma is more akin to a whisky wort with a milky/flat beer quality or to be moreaccurate, quite like a saké. This is coupled with an aroma that is more akin to sweat. If you can get past that, you willfind some wood spices that are along the lines of cedar and incense.
The grassy sugarcane finally comes through on the palate and it feels soft as you taste. The sweet level is low while thefresh herb and tart components take over.
CHARTREUSE du 9e CENTENAIRE
Chartreuse Liqueur du 9 Centenaire was created in 1984 to celebrate the ninth centenary of the foundation of themonastic order of Chartreux. Ok, I feel a bit silly to write it again, but of course there are herbs, herbs and again herbsfirst! Anise, lemon balm, mint, wormwood, rosemary, sage, fennel, even basil I can find, plus some pepper and of coursea nice honey sweetness. Compared to the 1605, it appears softer, the sweetness a little more superficial, but the typicalChartreuse character remains.
The taste,gentle, slightly softer, but still powerful with a full load of herbs, honey and a very light, aromatic whitepepper. We can feel all the 130 plants used in this recipe.
Sweet, herbal, also long lasting for the perfect final.

an “ensamble” of three different types of maguey (60% Cuishe, 30% Barril, 10% Espadín). It is produced by CaesarioRodriguez, a third generation maestro mezcalero of Las Salinas, Oaxaca.
On the nose, very vegetal. Green grass, key lime, eucalyptus, bamboo.
Round and smooth in texture. More green notes of mint leaf, cucumber. Finishes surprisingly cut and mute; doesn’treally linger save for a faintly bitter green note.
Mezcal Artesanal BRUXO No. 3
