小後苑 Backyard Jr. 位於信義區新光三越A9的3樓, 也就是 “福里安花神咖啡館 Caffé Florian Coffee” 的樓上, 小後苑與信義安和捷運站附近的“後院，Larriere-cour 是同一位老闆, 我在 小後苑 Backyard Jr. 2017年開幕的時候就已經首訪 (Link: http://globalfoodelicious.com/backyard-jr/ ) , 當時對於威士忌餐酒館充滿好奇, 那時的用餐經驗是相當不錯, 現在雖然換主廚, 但我仍舊對他們有信心. 只是這次我是去小後苑 Backyard Jr. 下午時段喝大人系的威士忌茶酒. 這裡有戶外座位, 這次我想看如何他們做茶酒, 我是坐在吧台區.
Backyard Jr. is located at 3rd floor of Shinkong Mitsukoshi A9 Department Store. “Caffe Florian Coffee” is at 2nd floor. The owner of Backyard Jr. also owns another Whisky Bar named “Larriere-cour” near Xinyi Anhe MRT station. I visited Backyard Jr. when they just opened at the year of 2017 (Link:http://globalfoodelicious.com/backyard-jr/ ). I was curious about the Whisky Bistro. The dining experience was pleasant as expected. Even though they changed their chef, I am still confident about their dishes. However, this time, I visited them during the afternoon for the whisky tea. Most people usually choose outside as their seating area in the afternoon. Since I would like to see how they make Whisky Tea, I chose the indoor seats near the bar counter.

威士忌茶時段是2pm ~ 5pm. NTD $480 可選兩款威士忌與茶配對, 可以兩人分享一壺威士忌茶, 再點個小點之類分享, 兩人在戶外座位聊天氛圍不錯. 步驟都註明在文末的菜單上. 我是選炭焙烏龍茶, 選威士忌的部分問專業店長或店員請他們推薦即可, 當天則是從三款裡選兩款威士忌, 酒款不定期更換.第一款是 Ardbeg 10 Years Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 雖然標榜泥煤威士忌, 但因為茶裡只加 10ml 威士忌, 若不精心品酌,微弱泥煤味很容易被忽略. 第二款是 Lagavulin 16 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 與第一款相較之下, 我個人比較喜歡第二款, 因為煙燻味與鹹味較重, 可以與烏龍茶相輔相成. 你們最想問的莫過於 “威士忌茶的酒味重嗎?” , 答案是 “不會”,畢竟並不是像在 “Trio Cafe” 喝調酒, 小後苑 Backyard Jr. 的威士忌茶也很適合不喝酒的人.
Whisky Tea time is 2pm ~ 5pm. With the price NTD $480, you can pick two whiskies for pairing with your tea. Two people can share Whisky Tea and order snack to share as well. The order steps are stated in the menu down below. I chose Charcoal Roasted Oolong Tea. As for whisky selection, you can ask their staff for recommendation. At the time, I would need to pick 2 whiskies out of three whiskies.First whisky is Ardbeg 10 Years Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Since the staff only adds about 10ml whisky, the peat smoky flavor is not too obvious since the Oolong Tea is quite strong too. As for second whisky, I picked Lagavulin 16 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky. The tastebuds can sense the stronger smoky and salty flavor while pairing with the Oolong Tea. Most people would ask “Is the alcohol heavy in the tea?” . The answer is “No”. It is not like drinking cocktail at “Trio Cafe”. Therefore, Backyard Jr. Whisky Tea is also suitable for people that don’t drink whisky at all.
French Fries with Whisky Powder

我這次去小後苑 Backyard Jr. 錯過他們與”時飴 Approprié 甜點店“ 合作的威士忌蛋糕甜點, 當時喝威士忌茶時想點個小點, 這道小點最特別的就是將威士忌作成不同風味的鹽粉, 店員端上桌時在桌邊灑上粉, 原料(?!) 則是 Auchentoshan Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 薯條吃起來松露味頗重, 倒是威士忌粉比較沒有凸顯出來.
I missed their dessert cooperation with Approprié for the whisky cake dessert. While drinking the whisky tea, I ordered a snack – French Fries with Whisky Powder. The ingredient is Auchentoshan Single Malt Scotch Whisky. The truffle flavor is stronger than expected. The whisky powder doesn’t enhance the overall taste though.
