    Madra 26 yo 1991/2018 (49.4%, The Whisky Cask Company, bourbon, 156 bottles)Madra 26 yo 1991/2018 (49.4%, The Whisky Cask Company, bourbon, 156 bottles) Five stars
    A new one by our friends in Bern, capital city of Switzerland! Colour: gold. Nose: huge fruits! More fruits than in fruits, bananas, maracuja, papayas, guavas, the whole lot. What’s also really amazing is the way many smaller herbs and teas start to come out after those massively fruity first whiffs, with chamomile, very honeyed flowers (wallflowers), hay, lime blossom, honeysuckle, dandelions… It’s totally spectacular. Some are still wondering why Diageo have sold all those casks at that time, because they sure are of ueber-OB quality. Mouth: oh! Totally in keeping, full of tropical fruits, nut oils (hazelnuts, almonds, sesame, pine) and just absolutely marvelous. Possibly one of the very best irish whiskys ever, really (together with a few sister casks that have already been bottled in the not too distant past). One could drink this all night while watching the most distressing series on Netflix – and still be happy. No I haven’t tried that. Finish: medium, a tad more herbal, always very elegant, with these wee mentholy touches that do come with age (I mean, in whiskies). Oranges. Comments: what’s Madra? Other than that, what an Irish stunner (sad to see it leave the EU, remember Bushmills’ in Northern Ireland)!

    Wonderfully fruity. In the finish this elderflower syrup. Very nice.

    Super fruit bomb

    Awesome Irish treasure again. Rate the Capall from this TWCC trio 1-2 points higher, but this one is also just and simple stunning Irish Whisky at its best. Never had a OB from the distillery, which comes even close to this ones. Great fruity dram!
