- Big Irish whiskey, full of pleasure
Sherry Dried Fruit Raisin Sweet Vanilla Caramel Nuts Almond Grapes Banana Tropical Fruit
very complex and interwoven, little to no oak, dark. Good memories of Port and the earthy aromas of old wine cellars. Later also tropical fruit. Full and multi-layered nose enjoyment.
little oak red grapes banana spices (little) nuts oil almonds sherry dried fruits raisins sweet vanilla caramel dark chocolate
creamy-soft, oily and dark-heavy, very complex, with every sip new aspects
Sweet dark chocolate fruits grapes spices cinnamon oak
Long. Soft, gentle, later becoming drier. Occasionally also artificial metallic (?) Aspects, very round and soothing in the palate and throat
- slightly different botle code L 8 338 IB 05S, but otherwise identical. Perfectly matured, aromatic and complex mixture of Oloroso, Port and Bourbon barrels. With each sip it became more complex and round with lots of nuts, marzipan and chocolate, always mild and with a long, wonderfully full-bodied finish. Perhaps a little overpriced in the meantime, but justified demand dictates price developments
- Unfortunately not as elegant as before, but still very interesting and despite 40% a strong journeyman.
The palate lives up to its promise. The finish is neat.
sweet, spicy, distinct tannins, beetroot, malt, a little cinnamon, prunes, strong dark chocolate, clove
Licorice, malt, dark chocolate, becoming dry, slight bitterness, black pepper, plum honey, also some beetroot, eucalyptus, licorice
medium length, clear barrel, light fruit note, pleasant woody, dry and slightly bitter
- Quite good Irish. It also has these somewhat artificial fruits, which are typical for me (red fruits here in this case), but by now it probably doesn't matter that much anymore.
However, a few percent more would do him good.
I'm not the biggest Irish fan anyway and there doesn't have to be a bottle of it.
The pot still whiskeys seem to be more to me.
