H for Hungarian Whisky

World Whisky Day is fast approaching on Saturday the 19th May 2018.

As part of the build up I’m featuring a series of blogs – both old and new – over the next month focusing on a country from each letter of the alphabet – if possible – that makes whisky.

Today is H for Hungarian Whisky.

BEKESI, SINGLE BARREL, SINGLE MALT WHISKY, 43%

Hungary.

Not a country normally associated with whisky production.

In 1956 the soviet tanks rolled in to crush a popular uprising..

The spirit in this bottle is dull and grey

A legacy of Stalinist oppression.

PS. Since writing this blog it has come to my attention a bit of Irish/Hungarian co-operation regarding the supply of used casks to the Hungarian Distillery.

I look forward to tasting future releases.
