  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Ultra rare Irish whiskey of more than 100 years ago. It has obviously lost some power, but still creamy with fruity notes, instant herbs and mints. Some extra emotional points for the rarity.
    • Nose
      Very dusty and fragile (glad I taste this in a 1920's Blender's glass). Grassiness of hay. Floral notes of geraniums and rhododendrons. Eucalyptus as well. Dried apricots at the background.
    • Taste
      Lincolnimp is right. Now more on juicy fruit of fresh figs of papaya and melon. Amazing after such a long time! Hints of caramelized apple. Smooth, but unfortunately a little thin on the mouth.
    • Finish
      Not that long. A little white pepper. Liquorice. Pine at the end

    The label states I pint & 7 Fl oz
    The bottom white label states
    `Absolutely trustworthy throughout the world`.
    I had to taste this one, over 100 years old (approx. 110)
    Apologies did not do a full tasting note but I jotted down this had lovely mashed exotic fruits on the palate like banana, mango and pineapple, it was really smooth and the finish was sweet and a little creamy with the fruit notes lingering.
    Difficult to be objective when tasting something this glorious but I certainly enjoyed the experience.
