Whisky Reviews for Cooley 1992 CA

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.50 points

  1. Gaija did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Some insight about the strange stated age on this one.

    It seems that the Irish law has recently changed (or that Cadenhead recently agreed to abide by it) about Irish whiskey maturation. Now, as soon as a cask of Irish whiskey leaves Ireland, it "stops maturing" officially so the stated age is actually the duration of ageing *on Irish soil*. Which doesn't impede the bottler to state the real bottling date, though, so this one's obviously 27yo, rest assured ;)

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong ! :P

    A very interesting mix of an irish fruit bomb with peat - very well balanced and thus very drinkable - very good!
    • Nose
      91 91
      Very fruity, apricots, peaches, tropical fruits too, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, white wine, honey, really just whiffs of peat and smoke, rather more going into greenish fruits - very good anyways
    • Taste
      92 92
      Very very creamy, oily, mellow, good sweetness, now the peat really kicks in - lot of peat and only little smoke, soot, cold ashes, later lots of fruits again - great

      Long, warm, fruity, more peaty but also still sweet

    Gaiga - You are correct, I think. Look at all Cadenhead's Lammerlaws... they are all 10 years old, no matter when they were bottled. My guess is that they were all brought to Scotland at 10 years old... Apologies if I am wrong about this.
