    This miniature is from the long gone Jones Road Distilley in Dublin. It was owned by the Dublin Whiskey Distillery Company, also known as DWD. The 15-year-old D.W.D. expression was part of their core range before they stopped full time distilling in 1926 (however it appears that they may have continued distilling irregularly until 1945. I once tasted an Cadenhead 1942 expression of Jones Road Distillery). This miniature should therefore have been bottled before the end of the 1930's. A lot of pubs in Ireland still proudly display DWD mirrors, however full bottles of DWD are very rare.
    • Nose
      Starts dusty with old books and hints of diesel oil. Followed by dried apricots and figs. Some fruity sweetness of tangerines and mandarines. Aniseed. Shoe polish and old leather at the background. Also hints of tobacco in cigar boxes. How much pot still characteristics do you want in an Irish whiskey?
    • Taste
      Robust oiliness and spices, comparable with old Irish pot still whiskeys I tasted earlier. Notes of orange marmalade and candied bananas. Stewed apples. Grapefruit bitterness. Later on more on toffee Despite its lower fill level this whiskey is still very complex after so many years.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Cinnamon and a little black pepper. Cloves. Some pine and menthol at the end. Perfectly balanced
