  1. Archer scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    He came late this year into the shops, until December you had to wait to get the new batch B1 / 17 home.

    Although less sweet and ingratiating than its predecessors again, a strong single pot still on a very high level.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Dried plums and dates, raisins swirled in sherry. A spice cabinet: nutmeg, rosemary, thyme, cumin and some pepper. The nose makes the whiskey appear dark, conjuring up associations of an old leather suite and a wood-paneled library. In addition to the spices then wild herbs and after a while, sweet sugar beet syrup, which does not last very long.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Very creamy and oily, warming and in spite of 58.2% not in the least burning. Milk chocolate and raisins, plus the great pot still spices, as they already stood out in the nose. Liquorice snails and fine herbaceous herbs. At the beginning a little sweet (again the sugar beet syrup), but this also disappears quite quickly on the tongue. Leather and tobacco notes and still a lot of licorice.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium-long and creamy with the taste of toffee sweets, cold milk coffee, licorice and pepper on the tongue.

    • Nose
      A little closed. It gives a toffee.
      With a little water, milky and vegetal.
    • Taste
      Intense, juicy, cream of milk, biting spices.
      With water, more drinkable, but less complex.
    • Finish
      Big arrival!

      Enthusiasm
      Nose 3/5
      Mouth 4/5 (3/5 without water)
      Final 4/5

      Whiskey n ° 1991

  3. Collegiate scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Nose - musty, leathery, old books, rounds out with sweetness
    Palette- gentle waves of sherried tartness, raisins, ramped up pot still character, oily and dense.
    Finish - wamp...heavy bitterness, more pot still notes, wallop of sherry cask, very long lingering finish.

    Iron fist in a velvet glove. I don’t normally love on Irish, but this one is a beast.

  4. Izzino scored this whisky 97 points Expert Senior

    Dark fruits, chocolate, caramel, blackberries, raisins, baked apple. Gorgeous whiskey, perfect price-performance ratio. Good vintage

    Nose: Here is Charlie`s Chocolate Factory, the dark chocolate syrup smelled me staggering. Then there is a bit of orange flavor, but it is still full of pulp. In fact, if it is not the taste of liquorice liquorice slices, it is quite in line with the aesthetics of the pride of the high-end real estate.

    Palate :: patina, caramel, stewed fruits (apples, pears), haystacks, and licorice slices. I remembered that I had a fat and oily and bloody hair that lasted on Saturday, and another stumble.

    Balance, Body: Moderate weight is placed on the body, overflowing with fat, strong alcohol.

    Finish: Medium to long. Caramel sugar sugar sugar sugar sugar sugar ... Original milk tea, chiffon cake.

    This is good, being new to Irish this makes me want to explore more. Love the nose, but a bit tannic to be a A+
    • Nose
      90 90
      Black licorice, root beer, caramel, earthy, green banana, hot cross buns
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet, creamy, cantaloupe, white pepper, vanilla wafers
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium long. Metallic, tannic, unripe banana again, dehydrated strawberry, marshmallows.
