  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Very dry and vegetal here, big oak tree extracts, almost like gin, a lot of herbal notes, sweet and light.
    • Taste
      Wow, it becomes big here, rich tropical notes, mango cream, very classic tropical-style Irish whisky here, fresh grass with cream, light smoke.
    • Finish
      Long, oak spices, bitter herbs, mints.

    Tasted in the evening in 15th position.

    Exotic nose, very liquor in the spirit, but it stays a little closed. (And I lack patience)

    Explosion of exotic fruits, very beautiful volume of aromas in the mouth.

    Final crackling!

    Nose 3/5
    Mouth 4/5
    Final 5/5

    C: Where richness and youthfulness are abound in equal measure. Very decent juice bottled at an awesome age.

    Scores a B

    A revisit to make sure, given how so many rave about it. I thought it very good [Blog87], save for the +£300 price-tag.

    N: Ashy [char] rich cream.
    T: Sour cream with a sweet touch and later, suggestions of sweetcorn.
    F: Mild liquorice=aniseed finish.
    C: Again, it’s decent stuff but I’ll take four various Hunter Laing single cask bottles for the same cash.

    Scores a B

    I had high expectations of the Gelston before the tasting and was not disappointed. Nice strong nose, smells like Irish :) the 54% are well integrated. In the mouth really great, high quality! Long finish, stays nice in the mouth. Great whisky if you are Irish!
