Gamme Artist 1 by La Maison du Whisky - 2011

The Artist behind edition #1
Warren Khong

Made in Singapore

Born in 1984, Khong completed his university course in Fine Art in 2009: Painting & Drawing at Huddersfield University in England. On a quest for an eternal and absolute expression of beauty, Khong has been working on this subject for several years. Influenced originally by the contemporary art movement Superflat (manga and Japanese cartoon art), he then moved on to explore other ways of expressing this beauty. In 2010, he introduced text-image into his Deliberate Shapes work, which gave it new density.

  • Bunnahabhain LMDW gamme artist

    BUNNAHABHAIN 1973
    Over 35 years

    Islay Single Malt - 49%, 70 cl - Single Cask #12153 - Refill
    Sherry Butt - Limited edition of 457 bottles
    Exclusive to LMDW

    This unique barrel was found at the far end of the new row of warehouses owned by the independent bottler Signatory Vintage on a freezing cold and rainy day in February 2011! Initially tasted at ‘local’ temperature, this Bunnahabhain of over 35 years of age seemed somewhat numb. It was only around a warming fire that its aromas started to loosen up the tongue and mind. Expressive and luxuriant.

    Tasting note

    Short Profile

    Exotic fruit (pineapple, persimmon), citrus fruits (orange, tangerine) and beeswax. Flowers (peony). Cinnamon, cardamom, curry. Chocolate and cream.

    Colour :

    burnished gold with amber tinges.

    Nose :

    complex, fine. Malted barley, lime blossom honey and ginger follow apricot, gingerbread and coriander. Dynamic and round, it has a certain ‘old-school style’ about it. The second nose reveals distinct vegetal (fir, broom, hay) notes.

    Palate :

    full-flavoured, gourmand. With even more finesse, it faithfully reproduces the aromatic palette. Except this time it adds dried tomatoes and cardamom. Sherry has to content itself to playing second fiddle by adding mellowness and consistency.

    Finish :

    long, endless. The rustic character (in the best sense of the word) of Ben Nevis is highlighted with a lovely woodiness and fresh walnut. Its chocolatey and spicy (ginger) bitterness gives way to juicy fruit (Mirabelle plums, greengage plum) and notes of undergrowth (mushroom).

  • glenlivet whisky artist

    Glenlivet 1981
    Over 30 years

    Speyside Single Malt - 59%, 70cl - Single Cask #2531
    First Fill Sherry Butt - Limited edition of 520 bottles
    Exclusive to LMDW

    Exotic and classic, discreet and omnipresent, subtle and extremely powerful. These contradictory characteristics bring out the very essence of this Glenlivet. Unless this game of see-saw is a deliberate attempt to throw the taster? In any case, the result lives up to expectations.

    Tasting note

    Short Profile

    ///

    Colour :

    orangey copper

    Nose :

    rich, opulent. The malted barley is magnificently expressed here. It then takes on an oriental register, (Turkish delight, rose petals) before returning to more classic aromas. Autumnal (lichen, mushroom), precious (sandalwood, incense), floral (honeysuckle), spicy (black pepper, cumin) and fruity (cherry eau de vie).

    Palate :

    fine, distinguished. The malted barley remains the framework onto which the fruit (pear, tangerine) and spices (cinnamon, ginger) can fully express themselves. Develops into honey and flowers (lime blossom, mint) and dried fruit (apricot, dates). Gorgeously smooth, it shows great generosity.

    Finish :

    creamy, balanced. Its exoticism (mango, passion fruit) and mentholated freshness transcend the palate. A handful of dark fruits (cherry, blackcurrants, blackberry) add an Irish touch to this highly powerful single malt. Cut grass and notes of undergrowth mix with a discreet yet omnipresent sherry undertone.

  • ben nevis gamme artist whisky

    BEN NEVIS 1990
    Over 20 years

    Highland Single Malt - 63.5%, 70cl - Single Cask #1506
    First Fill Sherry Butt - Limited edition of 640 bottles
    Exclusive to LMDW

    The last Ben Nevis selected by La Maison du Whisky, a 1975 version called The Prestonfield, left its mark on the palates that encountered it. This 1990 bottling has a completely different, more rustic, style, but has equally represented this charmingly quaint distillery with flying colours.

    LAPHROAIG 1996
    Over 15 years

    Islay Single Malt - 55.3%, 70cl - Single Cask #8513 –
    Hogshead - A limited edition of 321 bottles
    Exclusive to LMDW

    Long after, the retro-nasal olfaction reveals notes of creosote and pine pastilles which enhance the aromatic palette of this magnificent Laphroaig. Now all the ingredients are in place: peat, tar, white flowers, marine undertones and an indefinable charm that oozes smoothness and exoticism. A dazzlingly authentic Laphroaig!

    Tasting note

    Short Profile

    ///

    Colour :

    golden yellow with a green hue.

    Nose :

    bags of charm, precise. Unusually fine notes of peat are present. It then steers towards a spicy (cinnamon, cardamom) marine environment (salt, sea spray, shells), smooth medicinal notes (cough-sweet, castor oil), latte and coconut.

    Palate :

    lively, invigorating. The peat becomes bolder; its underlying notes profess unfailing devotion: the ash, smoke, damp straw, malted barley, coriander, cloves, both fresh and exotic fruits and white flowers.

    Finish :

    long, endless. Tar is the central theme here. But the palate is also flooded with coconut and green almonds. Its smoke is reminiscent of a strong havana while candied lemon, peppermint and lavender make up an extremely harmonious trio.
