  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

  7. Collegiate scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Pretty tasty number.  I’m noticing a bit more of a bourbon influence in this one over the one I had from about three or four years ago.  This one really benefits from water and you have to work with adding water until you find that sweet spot.  When you do, it opens up nicely with a lovely nose and a really creamy sherried texture and complex taste thanks to the mix of casks.  Without water, I found it too bitter.  I rarely buy Irish and tend towards single malts, so if you like Irish it will likely score a few extra points for you.
