Whisky Reviews for Knappogue Castle 1994
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.42 points
- I prefer this Bushmills to the Cooley (1992), it's fruitier and much bigger 84/85
lemon and lemon zest (loads of them, smells pretty sour, but in a very pleasant way) and pears, much fruitier than the 1992, and much less of this wet streets, wet concrete, limestone, chalk, wax
quiet a big body for such a light malt, gentle, fruity start, then some green pepper evolves, the lemon zests grow
much bigger than the 1992 - at the end some very light smoke tunes in
- Tasting note from a miniature.
Less grassy than the 1993, more caramel instead and it has a bit more (oily) body, which is what that one misses. It seems a bit more mature than that one. And it's less malty than the 1995. I think I like this one best of the three.
Pear, lime, vanilla, apple, caramel, straw, candle wax and a whiff of smoke.
Apple, pear, citrus, vanilla, caramel and pepper.
Caramel, apple, pear, peach, light spices and a whiff of smoke.
- Can´t understand the high rating to be honest. Tastes alcoholic and kinda boring to me.
- This is lovely stuff. I could drink it anytime. Yum!
Clean, citrus, tangerines, malt underneath.
Hugely fruity and fresh. Almost fizzing.
Medium to long. Lovely waves of juicy fruits coming again.
- From the Old Bushmills Distillery.
