    A pity, he still has too much of a new make. I would like to be able to mature for a few more years.

      Penetrating resin notes, artificial raspberry sweetness (Hubba-Bubba, fruit gums): New Make - Feeling. Honey and vanilla flavor, with the smell of resin and juniper are still very dominant and other notes (in addition to Hubba Bubba sweetness) do not allow.

      On the tongue the raspberry then plays in the natural. Hardly resin, rather a herbal with juniper, bay leaf and pepper. Pretty strong and aggressive. Brown bread note, lightly baked bread rolls from the oven. At the back comes out yet again pine resin

      Rather short, dry, strong. As in the beginning and later on the tongue: pine resin rules.

    My first tasting note, and that's what the Dingle Single Malt Batch 3 must be for. Why exactly this one? A beautiful story connects me to this drop, which I like to share with a common dram.
    I'll point out that this whiskey still needs oxygen, it gets better every now and then.

    Honeycomb, hay, young wood, spicy.

    In the taste, the seasoning continues.
    Juniper, barrel notes, young and strong.

    He tastes my wife.
    Not me.

    Established in 2012, Dingle is purporting to be Ireland’s first artisan distillery. This bottling is a marriage of 75% bourbon & 25% port casks, but that won’t necessarily reflect the signature recipe/makeup/style of Dingle long-term as they are still experimenting with their ratios.
    N&T: It’s young and clean. Nothing stands or sticks out.
    F: Dies off soon enough.
    C: It is the case that many of the newer distilleries are making very decent yet extremely neutral spirit, a position that relies heavily/solely on cask management/activity to transform the juice into something greater. As I always seem to be saying, “time will tell”.

    There must be some cross contamination from the gin production at Dingle Distillery. The smell and taste of gin is too obvious. Otherwise it is a good and easy drinking young whiskey.
    • Nose
      Very grainy with additional herbal and earthy aromas. Notes of pine trees, juniper berries and gin. Some fruitiness in the background. The youth of this whiskey is quite obvious.
    • Taste
      Spirity and spicy at first mouthfeel. A light whiskey that cannot hide its youth. There is a strong gin influence on the palate. Furthermore herbal aromas and notes of pine tree leaves, oak, pepper and ginger. Some sweetness is coming up after a while.
    • Finish
      Long and very spicy, warming from deep inside. Very long aftertaste (herbal aromas and gin).
