Ardbeg “Corryvreckan” Islay Single Malt at K&L California – Scotch Whisky News

Outer quote mark
Inner quote mark

Ardbeg “Corryvreckan” Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $82)

View

96 points Whisky Advocate

 Powerful, muscular, well-textured, and invigorating. Even within the realm of Ardbeg, this one stands out. The more aggressive notes of coal tar, damp kiln, anise, and smoked seaweed are supported by an array of fruit (black raspberry, black cherry, plum), dark chocolate, espresso, molasses, bacon fat, kalamata olive, and warming cinnamon on the finish. Quite stunning! (JH, Fall 2009) 

K&L Notes

2009 Scotch Whisky of the Year from the Malt Advocate. Named for Europe’s largest whirlpool, this whisky is now available on a full-time basis, having replaced the beloved Beist. Like the whirlpool, Ardbeg Corryvreckan is heady, intense and powerful. Its finish is long and deep, leaving the sipper with a lingering, mysterious and enticing taste. It is without a doubt one of the best Ardbegs ever created and lends a bit of richness to balance out the spicy flavors. Lots of peat, lots of power, but always perfectly balanced. A malt to really savor.

AVEVA Recognized with Frost & Sullivan 2020 Product Leadership Award for its Manufacturing Execution System in the Global Food & Beverage Industry

AVEVA, a global leader in industrial software, driving digital transformation for industrial organizations managing complex operational processes, today announced that it had been recognized with the Frost and Sullivan Product Leadership Award for its Manufacturing Execution System (MES) for Food and Beverage (F&B). This best practice award is bestowed on companies that consolidate or grow their leadership position by continuously innovating and creating new products and solutions that serve the evolving needs of their customers.

AVEVA was recognized for its success in enabling F&B manufacturers to digitally transform their operations to achieve higher productivity and enhanced manufacturing flexibility and quality while reducing the cost of regulatory compliance in a complex environment. Citing AVEVA’s approach as ‘customer centric’, the report states that AVEVA offers a model driven MES solution that combines the traditional advantages of an MES with a new digital workflow management approach to integrate people, processes, and businesses. AVEVA was also given recognition for delivering enhanced efficiency, capturing work procedures in digital workflows and relevant user experience models in contrast to competitors in this space that provide only standalone MES software.

The unique selling point of AVEVA’s MES is its out-of-the-box connectors for both plant and enterprise applications, which provide greater flexibility to customers in terms of integrating the MES into their entire business. While competitors’ platforms are designed to integrate only with their proprietary systems, the AVEVA System Platform is vendor-agnostic, working with any competitor’s programmable logic controller (PLC), remote terminal unit (RTU), programmable automation controllers, IIoT devices and general IT applications. AVEVA Connect, which is also mentioned, allows clients to connect and optimize existing operations with advanced capabilities in the cloud – removing organizational silos. Furthermore, the ability to connect with automated manufacturing processes and integrate with asset performance management software or third-party applications, allows customers to achieve end-to-end process management and to standardize processes across the enterprise.

For several years, AVEVA has been delivering a multi-site MES value proposition to the F&B market to digitalize manufacturing activities and integrate them with both ERP and automation systems. The Best Practices Award further highlights that AVEVA enables users to achieve the maximum level of automation, consistency of operational tasks, and collaboration across diverse teams. AVEVA’s Model driven MES approach is based on the digitalization of operational processes, KPIs and reporting with sustainable reusability as a template and for governance of change across a multi-site enterprise. This standardization approach allows for rapid multi-plant optimization and lays the foundation for the optimization of the manufacturing value chain and for more agile, resilient businesses.  

The MES benefits customers by reducing operating costs, increasing productivity and yield, and shortening the decision time. Vendors who can offer a real-time, plant-wide platform that can be easily implemented in a wide-scale manner without causing any disruptions in existing operations will be best positioned to stay competitive in the dynamic MES market.

Recipe: French Manhattan

Drew Beard April 8, 2021

Who doesn’t love French things? Well, I guess there was that whole Freedom Fries kerfuffle years ago, but since then I hardly know anyone who doesn’t talk fondly about the trip they took or will eventually take to the wine and culinary capital of the world.

This cocktail is perfect for the budding Francophile, adapted from the original recipe found in Drinking French by famed chef and food writer David Lebovitz. It’s a riff on the foolproof Manhattan with a focus on French ingredients. The traditional rye whiskey is replaced by Cognac, giving the cocktail a silky, fruit-forward body without the spice of the classic, while the use of Grand Marnier “Cordon Rouge” adds an elegant citrus sweetness amplified by the use of orange bitters. To keep things entirely French, you can use a native sweet vermouth like Dolin or Noilly Pratt. I cheated with Antica, which hails from Turin just over the Italian border (where the French learned to make vermouth, anyway), and I used a little less than the original recipe to allow the cognac to stand out more. A votre santé.

French Manhattan
1.5 oz. Cognac
1 oz. sweet vermouth
.5 oz. Grand Marnier (or other orange liqueur)
1 dash orange bitters

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass over ice and stir until well-chilled. Strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with a cocktail cherry.

Review: Tree House Brewing Super Treat Double IPA

Tree House Brewing Super Treat Double IPA

Drew Beard April 8, 2021

Tree House Brewing began life in 2011 in a small barn in Brimfield, Massachusetts, initially operating at a barebones, homebrew scale with a 5-gallon Coleman cooler system. Today, the brewery has become synonymous with the wildly popular hazy, New England style of IPA and their current site in Charlton, Massachusetts can produce upwards of 50,000 barrels a year, which is good by any craft brewery standards but even more impressive when you consider that Tree House is a non-distributing brewery. Every drop of beer made by Tree House is sold on site. And judging by the throngs of eager hopheads that have camped out and lined up for Tree House’s releases over the years, they could almost certainly sell even more.

I live nowhere near Massachusetts and honestly have a hard time standing in line for anything, so I came by Tree House’s Super Treat Double IPA via a good, beer-loving friend who made the pilgrimage to Charlton last fall. The beer is a riff off of another Tree House favorite, Treat, with more dry hopping to bring out candy flavors from the hops and Tree House’s own house yeast. I’ve never had a beer people lined up for, so let’s see what all the hype is about, shall we?

The beer pours thick, in classic hazy fashion, with a deep gold, almost cantaloupe color, and a fluffy white head. Despite the lollipop on the can, the aroma isn’t overly sweet. There’s a great balance of funky yeast, dusty hops, and just ripe citrus offering an introduction that, while enticing, doesn’t scream flavor bomb. And it shouldn’t because the palate is every bit as balanced and surprisingly restrained in its sweetness. It shows tons of citrus up front with tangerine, orange zest, and a bit of pulpy orange juice, more tart than sweet. The body is creamy, but not overly so like a lot of hazy IPAs I’ve encountered. The finish is clean and crisp with a gentle carbonation and restrained notes of orange slice and fresh cut, underripe melon that linger with a gentle hoppy bite. I’m still not sure how long I’d wait in line for this. But at least a little while.

Diageo project creates ultra-low carbon footprint whisky bottles

Diageo is celebrating a successful pilot project to pioneer the lowest-carbon footprint glass bottles ever produced for a Scotch whisky brand.

Conducted in collaboration with glass manufacturer Encirc and industry research body Glass Futures, the project used waste-based biofuel-powered furnaces to reduce the carbon footprint of the bottle-making process by up to 90 per cent.

For the trial Diageo used its Black & White Scotch whisky brand, producing 173,000 bottles which also used 100 per cent recycled glass, further reducing their environmental impact.

Diageo says more work is needed to develop and scale the process for future production, but that it represents a significant step in its drive to become more sustainable.

Following the success of the trial, Diageo has also agreed a 10-year partnership with Glass Futures to accelerate innovation in the glass industry.

Review: New Riff Maltster Bourbons and Winter Whiskey

New Riff Winter Whiskey Bourbon Bottled in Bond

Most bourbon drinkers know that the typical bourbon is made from three grains — corn, rye or wheat, and barley. Of those, only the lattermost is typically malted, a process in which the grain is gently germinated in order to make it easier to ferment while adding a more enjoyable flavor to the finished spirit.

New Riff’s new Maltster series includes additional malted grains, one wheat and one rye, and while this is not unheard of, it is a fairly rare occurrence, particularly in the proportions being used in these two whiskeys. New Riff’s Maltster with Malted Wheat is particularly interesting, as it includes three different varieties of wheat in the mashbill.

In addition to the two new Maltster releases, we’re also looking belatedly at New Riff’s Winter Whiskey, which is made with malted oats, among other unusual ingredients.

All are bottled at 100 proof. Let’s dig in.

6 Great Meal Ideas That Are Perfect For Your Muslim Friends


Are you expecting some Muslim friends for dinner or lunch? Probably you are wondering what to prepare for them. Before we hope into the meal ideas, there are things you need to know concerning Muslim foods. First, Muslim meals must be Halal. This means you must prepare the meat and its accompaniments in an Islamic way. Secondly, you should understand what's prohibited and allowed in Islam. For instance, they don't consume pork and its products. When you know all these restrictions, you can then prepare a sumptuous meal for your friends. This article will discuss some of the perfect meals you can come up with for your friends. Read on for the list.

  1. Chicken Biryani

If rice is your perfect local food, chicken biryani might be the ideal meal to prepare for your friends. You will need some spices and grain rice to prepare the ideal traditional biryani rice. To make it more sumptuous, you can add the ghee or spices as per your taste. The Muslim Chicken Biryani tastes better, has a fantastic aroma, and it's non-greasy. To prepare, marinate the chicken with lemon juice, salt, turmeric powder, and chili. Next, heat the pan and add the onions, green chili, cloves, tomato, ginger paste, cinnamon, and other flavoring spices. Cook until golden brown before adding the chicken pieces topping it with coriander leaves. Add some water and basmati rice, then cook for seven minutes and then serve.

  1. Garlic Mustard Fish Fillet

Garlic Mustard fish Fillet is a traditional Muslim food, mostly consumed in India. To get the best flavor, you can bake this meal instead of deep-frying. For this, you can shop on the best halal groceries to prepare a mouth-watering delicacy. These groceries include fish, cubed potatoes, pepper, olive oil, garlic, carrots, lemon juice, and salt. To prepare the meal, mix all the ingredients, including potatoes, pepper, olive oil, garlic, and others, then soak the fish in it or leave it for a night. You can then bake the mixture for 20 minutes while serving it with white rice. Include some lemon wedges to add flavor.

  1. Easy Victoria Spongecake

Do your friends fancy some cakes? You will get it right with this recipe. The sponge cake is soft and has great proteins derived from eggs which also add some taste. Get some sugar and butter, then blend jointly while adding the eggs. Mix the components with a sift of flour, then put the mixture in some clean baking tins. Prepare your oven, put in the tins and heat for 20 minutes, cool down, then apply some cream to the cakes' top. This cream helps to seal the sponge. Lastly, get some icing sugar which you'll use to serve the cake. This sponge cake can act as a dessert or a bite as your guests wait for the chicken biryani.

  1. Kebabs

This Chinese food can get grilled on charcoal ovens or put on grills to add the smoke flavor. Ensure you don't compromise on the taste. You need to prepare your meat pieces with onions, potatoes, and other ingredients, and then put them into kebab sticks, ready for grilling. Ensure to marinate the elements with spices before grilling them on moderate heat. You can eat your kebab with lime, green chutney, and other accompaniments to create a fantastic flavor. With the smoky taste from the charcoal, you are sure of your friends enjoying the tasty meal.
