- Ruben had that here: https://www.whiskynotes.be/2018/irish-whisky/irish-malt-1992-liquid-treasures/
- Short winner of tasting:
- Liquid Treasures irish paints 1992
- Limited Whisky Investment irish paints 1989
- Glenburgie 1992 Cadenheads, ex-Bourbon
- Glenlossie 1997 Signatory Vintage, ex-Bourbon
His nose was light and his nose in front but on the finish I found the Limited Whisky Investment better and longer.
Notes of 94, however, I consider completely covered! The Lossie and Burgie were able to keep up and were only 1.5-2 points weaker than the LT Ire, at a price of about 100 €
- Not as complex as I would've assumed given the price, but still utterly convincing. All its aromas are clear as day, and have real depth to them, while the bourbon barrel is ever-present without ever taking over entirely. Immaculate nose! The only problem is that it's so eminently and refreshingly drinkable, which is a real danger at this price level. =)
A beautiful marriage of fresh fruit and dark roast notes. On the one hand, a whole basket of fruits: melon, papaya, pear, banana... On the other, the bourbon barrel is immediately present with notes of charcoal, milk chocolate, and café au lait. After a while, a lactic creaminess comes in as a third element, reminding me of a thick, frothy milk shake, sweet cream, and vanilla custard. By themselves, these three elements may not be in any way unique or surprising, but what's great here is that their intermingling never clashes; it's all one grand harmonious whole. One giant, decadent, fresh-fruit, vanilla-cream, arabica-espresso-laced tiramisu, if you will. Water brings out a mineralic/metallic freshness, like brushed steel, while leaving it in the glass for upwards of 30 minutes increases the cereal sweetness and adds christmas-cookie spices.
In equal measure fruity and dusty, with grainy pot-still spices aplenty, and quintessentially Irish in that regard. Perfectly drinkable at bottling strength. Warming, with herbal honey and sweet peaches in syrup.
All on sweet cereal and caramel, with some pockets of fruity acidity and dusty oak flashing up intermittently.
- Fruity, good texture, filigree and complex.
Kaiser pear, apple, peach, banana, passion fruit, tropical fruit, vanilla biscuit. Harmonious, pronounced intensity.
Passion fruit, pear, honey, vanilla, malt, tobacco. Warming, creamy, sweet, full-bodied, pronounced aroma pressure
Passion fruit, pear, pepper, malt, vanilla. Medium-long finish, good finish.
- Very drinkable and also enjoyable
Fruity, honedew, little vanilla, peach, pineapple, some dry hay, little austere, herbal - I would say typical Irish - very good
Fruity, oily, sirupy, good sweetness, more tropical and yellow fruits, little spicy and herbal, again the typical austere and herbal expression of Irish malts, hints of tobacco - very good again
Medium long, warm, fruity, little spicy
- Coconut on the nose! Seriously? Very fine and perfectly integrated, it's a real pleasure.
