威士忌 - 常見問題
High-aged whisky must be better?
A high-aged whisky doesn't necessarily mean that it will taste better. Firstly, age isn't the only indicator of quality in whisky, there are many other factors that affect the taste. Secondly, high-aged whisky is often more expensive due to the cost of aging it for a long time and it tends to have a more complex taste, but this does not guarantee quality.
Aging whisky for a long time can add new flavor elements, but sometimes long-term barrel storage can cause the whisky to lose its original distillery character and be dominated by barrel flavors. There are also plenty of low-aged, high-quality whiskies, for example, the Talisker 8YO Special Release from 2018, although it was only aged for 8 years, it was able to express complexity beyond its age, and it's market value has grown even higher than it's original price.
Additionally, high-aged whiskies may be affected by climate and location, so even if they are the same age, they may taste different.
In summary, high-aged whisky is not necessarily better than low-aged whisky, the judgement of quality should be based on other factors and individual taste.
Single Malt Whisky must be better than Blended Malt Whisky?
Single Malt Whisky and Blended Malt Whisky both have their own advantages and it's not fair to say that one is better than the other.
Single Malt Whisky is made by a single distillery using only malted barley. Single Malt Whisky tends to have a specific terroir and flavor, and is more expressive of the distillery's style, but this doesn't necessarily mean it's better or worse.
Blended Malt Whisky, on the other hand, is made by mixing several different Single Malt Whiskies together. This type of whisky has a more diverse and rich flavor. As long as the blender has a deep understanding of the craft, blended malt whiskies can also be of high quality, for example, Compass Box is well-known for its blended whiskies, they even disclose their blending formula on their website.
Furthermore, for commercial reasons, some tea-spooned whiskies can only be bottled in the form of blended malt whiskies, but the quality is no different from that of a single malt whisky.
However, both excellent single malt whiskies and blended malt whiskies require careful brewing and appropriate aging to achieve the best quality. Therefore, when tasting whisky, you should choose the one that suits your personal taste. If you only stick to single malt whisky, you will miss many high-quality and relatively inexpensive whiskies.
Apart from Scotch Whiskies and Japanese whiskies, what kind of whisky is famous?
Besides the most well-known Scottish whiskies and Japanese whiskies that have won international awards in recent years, the world of whisky has been blooming with high quality and recognition from other regions.
Irish whiskey is known for its rich fruit flavors. The most famous Irish whiskey brands include Bushmills, Teeling, etc. Teeling also produces many high-quality single barrel whiskies.
Taiwanese whisky has also been gaining attention in recent years, known for its unique terroir and high quality. In Taiwan, whisky is typically made using locally grown barley and clear underground water. The most famous Taiwanese whisky brands include Kavalan and Omar, which have also won many international awards in recent years. Other countries like Indian Whisky Amrut and Paul John,Australian Whisky Starward, Swedish Whisky Smögen etc, are also gaining the attention of the international market.
In conclusion, high-quality whiskies can be found all over the world, each with its own unique terroir and flavor. It's important to choose a whisky that suits your personal taste and preference. If you only drink well-known Scottish and Japanese whiskies, you will miss many high-quality and reasonably priced whiskies from other regions.
Difference between Blended Whisky and Blended Malt Whisky?
There is a significant difference between Blended Whisky and Blended Malt Whisky.
Blended Whisky is made by mixing different Malt Whiskies and Grain Whiskies together. This type of whisky typically has a diverse range of flavors as it's composed of different types of whiskies. A common example of blended whisky is Johnnie Walker, where many of their products, such as Black label and Red label, are labeled as Blended Scotch Whisky, which means they contain Grain Whisky in their blends.
Blended Malt Whisky, on the other hand, is made by mixing different Single Malt Whiskies together. This type of whisky is made by mixing different malt whiskies of the same type. For example, Johnnie Walker's Green Label 15YO is labeled as Blended Malt Scotch Whisky, which means it doesn't contain Grain Whisky and is only composed of different Single Malt Whiskies.
In summary, Blended Whisky is made by mixing different types of whiskies together, while Blended Malt Whisky is made by mixing different Single Malt Whiskies together. These whiskies have different flavors and tastes, and it's important to choose one that suits your personal taste and preference.
How should whisky be stored?
Different storage methods have a significant impact on the quality and flavor of whisky.
Firstly, whisky should be stored in a cool, dry place, avoiding direct sunlight or high temperatures and humidity.
Secondly, whisky should be stored at a relatively consistent temperature.
Thirdly, whisky should be stored in a relatively still place, avoiding vibrations or shaking.
Lastly, whisky should be stored in a dark place, avoiding prolonged exposure to light, as light can cause chemical changes in the whisky that can affect its flavor.
In summary, whisky storage requires the appropriate temperature, humidity, stillness, and darkness to maintain the best quality and flavor.
