Character: This bottling burns with an absolute recognition value in the memory. The mixture of mango, sandalwood, sea buckthorn, ginger and orange oil is simply unique. That's what I call a bottling with a very own character. Rating: A true broadening of horizons. I'm really glad that I could try this bottling. Although it does not quite meet my personal preferences, I will not forget this taste experience so quickly. For that alone I would like to recommend this drop from the heart. Those who like this special, spicy-exotic character are in great danger of falling in love with these Irishmen. Then it's time to strike fast while it's still available. Exactly this bottling will probably never come again. With a rating, I rarely do hard. I can understand that this Glendalough powder for many connoisseurs the 90s mark. For me he is now simply the "Fanta Mango" among the whiskeys! However, like the Fanta Mango back in the 90s, it does not quite meet my personal taste. That's why it stays at "only" 88 points for me.
Basic flavors: fruit, citrus fruits, wood, herbs, spices, oils (ethereal), malt *, cereals *, vanilla *; Note: * = barely Description: One of the most exotic noses I've ever come across. Active I would never have guessed, but EinSpatzUnterVielen opened my eyes: Sandalwood is really program here. In a remarkable interaction with a lot of mango and a fresh tingling herbal and spicy note that reminds me of ginger and sea buckthorn. I'm a bit heavy on describing other individual spices, but I feel a certain resemblance to kavalans from the bourbon cask. Light peaches, pears and some citrus and orange oil are also part of the party. After a longer life comes finally something slightly creamy with very subtle hints of vanilla. The nose is really fancy and my first association "strange" does not want to disappear on the second day either.
Basic flavors: fruit, spice, wood, spice, oils (ethereal), coffee (espresso), malt *, Note: * = barely Description: The taste continues as consistently as the nose has announced. Clear, fresh and almost sparkling, the drop settles on the tip of the tongue and immediately ensures a fruit and spice explosion. Again intensive mangoes, lots of sandalwood and a slightly sour sea buckthorn. A noticeable spice unfolds and brings ginger and white pepper into play. On the tongue, an intense tingling sets in, and slowly sweet sweet fruit flavors and a slightly restrained malt taste conquer their place. Peaches mingle with orange oil. Finally, the oak produces a slightly bitter, not unpleasant almond flavor, and behind the ginger mango sandalwood curtain plays pleasant espresso on the piano. What a tasteful score!
Basic Flavors: Fruit, Spice, Wood, Oils, Coffee (Espresso) Description: The finish is medium to long. Extremely intense sounds the above-described flavor mixture. Mangoes, orange oil, ginger, sandalwood and enigmatic espresso are present in the mouth for several minutes after the last sip.
