Old books, currants
- Tasting Notes:
- I like the profile but as a whole it is a bit to 'tame' for me. Also, it loses points in the finish for me. I think there's some bitter nutty flavours here that are putting me off - I have a strong nut allergy.
Apples, banana, coconut, slightly waxy. Not a very strong nose but certainly pleasant.
Very smooth nut with enough punch, apples, citrus, aniseed, coconut, oak flavours
Medium long and quite bitter.
- Redbreast "15 years", original bottling, 46% alc.
Extending: sherry (Oloroso) and bourbon barrels
Region: Midleton, Ireland
Special feature: "Pure Pot Still Whiskey"
Nose: immediate dark fruit flavors in the nose, beautiful sherry notes with berry fruits (blackberries, currants) and mild coffee aromas. In addition, nuts and the fruits are now a bit lighter. Pineapple and apricots, marzipan.
Palate: More fruit and really many spices, a beautiful sweetness spreads in the mouth. Drier, also here is the sherry influence: coffee and dark chocolate, raisins and walnuts. The flavors are rounded off by the taste of baked apples.
Finish: Medium to long. Dry and spicy, the spice runs the rank of the fruit. In addition, a slightly fading sweetness, honey and a little vanilla, as if the bourbon - with the sherry casks deliver a match here.
Conclusion: Positively surprised, I really like the Irishman. A whiskey for all connoisseurs of unspoiled fruit bombs.
