I am satisfied with this wine. Much better than Royal de Alloza Barrica 2003 (also from FANBAR cellar): it has more texture and is plenty of flavour. May be this is related to the facts that it is a "monovarietal" and that it has 14,5º instead of 13,5º. Worth to taste it.
In addition of being Trias better than Birba, you can check here the different package. While the former ones advertise Gaudi and Barcelona, the latest ones are devoted to bulls. This is a shame for Birba. Worse quality and worse package. You can perform this comparison at several airports.
Trias: Birba biscuits:
rear side to check that they are really Birba from Camprodon:
This is the best restaurant I have visited in Glasgow. In addition, it is elegant, they provide outstanding dishes for a very reasonable price. Thus, it deserves the OUTSTANDING qualification. Worth to visit it! specially because Glasgow is plenty of places that provide very low quality food. Next post will be devoted to the outstanding building.
fixed price market menu for 15,5 GBP. Although it should be ordered before 7 PM they provided it for us after 8 PM, on a wednesday. very good salmon fish:
pasta (not the italian pasta, the catalan "pasta fullada") with vegetables:
a very good dessert, although too much sweet & caloric, in my opinion:
the price is amazing. thus, I put the receipt. You will check that it is a true bargain:
This is an OUTSTANDING whiskey. without dubt the best one I have ever tasted. Even for someone like me, that prefers brandy/cognac to whiskey. Nevertheless, there is a plausible explanation: the barrels have previously contained sherry :-) Really tasty, smooth, plenty of colour, taste and flavours. The unique drawback is the price: 93,2 EUR when purchased in Colmado Quilez and 79,99 GBP at the distillery. In this case, it is slightly cheaper at the cellar ;-)
This is an outstanding whiskey. Similar to the previous one, it is very smooth. The alcohol does not burn your mouth, like other famous whiskeys do. In addition, this is more tasty and complex in taste and flavours than the 10 years old one. Similar to the previous 10 years old whiskey, it is cheaper when purchased in Barcelona than in the distillery (46,65 EUR in Colmado Quilez, 38,50 EUR in vilaviniteca and 49,99 GBP in the distillery).
This is a surprising single malt whiskey. Really smooth! They do not smoke the whiskey, like other distilleries do, and I appeciate this style. I dislike the smoked whiskey. Worth to taste it! Nevertheless, it is much cheaper in Colmado Quilez (24,4 EUR) than in the distillery (26,99 GBP)
This is the whiskey that they offer during the touristic visit. They also provide water in order you want to add it. They recommend to add water, instead of ice. In my case, as always, I disencourage to add any of these strange elements into whiskey!
