  1. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Oh, this is much nicer than the Ballykilcavan. More in balance. And better developed it seems. There is ridiculously much flavour in it for a 3-year-old.
    • Nose
      Pears and green apples. But also dried barley and hay. Vanilla and green grapes. Lemons, which is followed by grapefruit and nectarines.
    • Taste
      Honey. Caramel and milk chocolate. It’s quite sweet but nice. Barley sugar. Strawberries and wine gums. Vanilla. And also a hint of freshly cut grass. Later some spices such as liquorice, ginger and white pepper.
    • Finish
      Mid-long with mostly caramel.

  9. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Pretty pleasant whiskey, way less 'musty' than the Waterford Ballykilcavan versions. One of the better Waterfords I've tasted actually, full, fresh and fruity.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Pretty full scent, alcohol is clearly present, fruity, ripe fruits, floral and vegetal, plants. Hardly any musty notes now. Fresh, malty.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Fruity, pretty smooth now, a little sparkle, now some musty notes come in, ripe fruits. Citrus (like warm lemon juice), floral and vegetal.
    • Finish
      85 85
      More power now, more sweetness, some candy-like sweet- and fruitiness. Middle long.

  11. Wolfe Tone scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    I love the transparency of this new distillery, but I can't help but wonder how this malt would have tasted if they had matured it solely in bourbon casks, so we might have had a clearer idea of the distillery character.

    Still, a very good malt for this young age. On the nose: bread, spices and tropic, overripe fruits, and some caramel fudge.

    The taste is nice, oily and thick, with loads of pepper, nutmeg, cloves and coffee, and some tropical fruits, as well, but also some yeast, bread and barley. The casks have been well selected, but still, they haven't drowned out the distillery character.

    Finish is medium long and drying with spices and some sweets.

    Sardine in a beer can. Fish stew served with passion fruit! You may love this whiskey if you have fish bowl for a supper!
    • Nose
      81 81
      Can oily be an olfactory sense? Anyway this is the first impression. It is "hop-py", a little sour, and also a little fishy, peculiar! Used another perfectly clean nosing glass to double check. Same result. Then honey took the lead, accompanied by nice wood scent. But the strange fishy smell was still there.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Peanut soaked in a fish stew! Funny! The mouth feel is quite good though. Very good quality wood, shows rum and passion fruit.
    • Finish

      Passion fruit lingered, unfortunately so did the fish!

    With expectations as high as mine were for this, I was very worried I’d be let down, particularly worried they were antsy and might have bottled this too soon. Those fears were unfounded. It’s not like they managed to make a super mature-tasting whiskey at under 4 years old, but they did manage a good one. It’s actually one of the more unique whiskies I’ve tried and I’m more eager than before to see how these change over time.

  22. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    N: Light vanilla-ey naturally savoury-sweet grain whiskey-like/blended nose – compare it alongside Famous Grouse, I dare you! Also, light summer fruits talk of Cantaloupe melon, ripe yellow apples, and pears. Without the full details, I forget what the abv’s are now, but 50% rings a bell.

    T: We’ve a neatly chiselled/very clean arrival with soft slightly fruity barley-all-the-way curves. There’s just the beginnings of what might develop into a chewy toffee-d creamy barley mouthfeel after a few more years down the line, in oak. A little water, in fact, brings out more of those toffee-d, even fudgy [> raisiny > coppery] notes. With an involving form, seemingly light at first but with an ever-expanding presence, I expect this whiskey style will mature rather well in the years to come, not that that is exactly the plan at Waterford. What’s the cask policy again? First-fill [for now] I seem to remember, and how many casks? 50??

    F: There’s no bite, there’s no sense of excessive tempering, no tannin growls, and boy does it sail on through with a thoroughly pleasing coppery < sweet UK-bourbon-like conclusion.

    C: Beautiful beginnings, an accomplished 3yo with utterly no flaws. Scores [starting at 78 before moving up to 80 and 82 before settling at] 84 points.

  23. Jackson05 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Blind sample. My guess was Ben Nevis 10. Which would be a compliment!

    Very nice clean distillate. Barley sugars, clean wort, grapes, dried grass, pepper, milk chocolate, orange oils. The quality is there for sure; now let’s see how it progresses.

  24. hs305 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2020] A lot of hype around Waterford distillery releases but is there any corner of the whiskey world without hypes these days? I doubt. So I managed to get a Waterford sample to check this underaged dram by my own taste buds...

    ...and they state: This is just another baby malt that smells and tastes like almost all other (unpeated) baby malts. Hard to tell differences beside speculations and certainly no reason to be hyped, according to my taste buds. But they never ever were impressed by a three years old, why should they? Because it is a new distillery? Come on...
    • Nose
      80 80
      The colour is jonquiripe corn and the nose offers the typical immature profile of an underaged dram with tons of sour mashy impressions, very shy fruits only, hardly identifiable floral notes and unfinished barley sugars. This could be any unpeated baby malt, to be honest. It is neither impressive nor delicious but there are no off-notes either. Clearly this nose is way too young as to tell any specifics about how the adult malt will be (except you are a master-blender and you have nosed tens of thousands of young drams before). Sorry folks, I am not a master-blender and I am not paedophilic as a drinker!
    • Taste
      81 81
      The taste is that of any ordinary baby malt too with loads of barley sugars, shy fruits and firm wooden notes again without any flaw. It is absolutely okay for a three years old but why should I drink such simple and replaceable stuff? And to be honest: I doubt that any ordinary drinker can tell how this malt will taste when it gets ten, fifteen or twenty years old (even the experts are very cautions to make such projections). So why drink it now?
    • Finish
      80 80
      The dram arrives warming and coating on the palate with a good mouthfeel for a three years old. The finish is of medium length and adds no new impressions as with almost all baby malts - where should these impressions come from, the maturation simply has not created them yet and it will take at least seven to ten more years until this is done (with unpeated malts, peated stuff matures faster).

    Tèireoir

    After Bruichladdich was sold Mark Reynier moved to Ireland and founded the new Waterford Distillery there. His search for terroir goes one. The first releases sold out immediately, but new bottlings are underway already. This Bannow Island was produced from barely from the eponymous farm and matured in a mix of casks: American oak, American virgin oak, French oak and French Vin Doux Naturel casks. It was cut to 50%.

    Whoa, this is a good nose! A lovely mix of rye bread and bakery spices, molded wood, potato peel and nutmeg. That is followed immediately by fruity notes of mango, pineapple and overripe banana on a bottom of pastry. Hint of sweetened, but cold coffee in the back. This is very promising and entertaining.

    Good body, nicely oily – and immediately pretty piquant. Ginger, nutmeg, anise, white pepper and a truckload of cloves. I suspect the French wine casks have had quite some influence. The rye bread now moves over to make room for more quasi tropical fruit. Next to mango and pineapple, some nectarines and raisins appear. Very good!

    The finish is quite long, sweet and dry, but very satisfying.

    While it certainly shows some young, rough edges, this is a very interesting malt. Craftmanship. It was released at 70 EUR and is worth it.

    nose:
    very pronounced and pleasant, on vanilla, cream, red fruits, sour candies
    slight trace of varnish, malt, wood and spicy sweetness, return with a little honey!
    mouth:
    dry woodiness, almond cream, herbs in return a little dried out, spices on the pepper, the alcohol arrives there a little significant
    slightly undifferentiated fruits, like a fruit basket, it smells of fresh fruit, it's airy as a sensation, with malt and almond kernel at the end
    final:
    spicy, alcoholic which leaves the same scents lasting, fruit on the scent of Harlequin candies on the one hand, and wood and cereals on the other.

    nose difficult to define, but rather pleasant, dried fruits can be? Super dense on the palate, beautiful substance, it chews a bit with a nice complexity.
    it is fresh, malty and cereal.

    Nose: Quite sweet, and fruity with nice fruity touches – nectarine and ripe orange as well, there are quite a lot of wood spices, and vanilla cream, sweet dough, and baked apples, and a bit more lemony with time.

    Finish: Lots of wood, with the vanilla sweetness and apple peel, and golden syrup.

    Palate: round and oily, very nice mouthfeel, with initial spice heat (pepper. chilly, ginger) on the first wave of sensations, then it tones down to reveal the barley sweetness and more of the sweet vanilla ice cream, with cinnamon on top.

    with water: now the Rotwin hits through a little more, but also the artificiality, works like artificial aroma in a chewing gum

    Conclusion: yes, what should you expect from a three year old .. for his age he is OK, but still a few years away from a good whiskey. It still needs a lot of aging in the barrel.
    • Nose
      78 78
      Cereals and malt, some grass, some floral notes, subtle light fruit (apple) and some vanilla, also a few red splashes of fruit are included (currant), but this looks a bit artificial

  47. LaddieNerd scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Promising malt as a starting product for future bottlings. Here he is simply too young and unbalanced for me.
    Plenty of grainy sweetness, malt, subtle wood, with light notes of grapes in the background. A little sparkling in the nose. Notes of pears, plums and lemons are added to the palate. As with the Ballykilcavan, I have pastries here too. Not a bad drop, but still too young in my opinion.

    A robust and good 3 year old whiskey that has a lot of potential with older age.
    • Nose
      Aromas of roasted grain are immediately present. This is followed by fruit aromas: red currant, slight hints of citrus peel. A subtle note of chewing gum appears later. A slight vegetable note is also noticeable. But this roasted aroma, felt first, lies above everything. A subtle but balanced whiskey on the nose.
    • Taste
      First the barley comes through, it tastes like beer for a short time. Bread notes are added and are then overlaid with apricots and a hint of pineapple. You can taste nut flavors, even if weak. Later the whole thing will be complemented by a floral note and wine notes.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Again minimal fruit and more floral notes with a hint of ginger accompany the finish.

    A lot of positive things have been said about the distillery. Nice and interesting concept, maximum transparency in all directions. It will be a success story if the quality fits. Let's see, some of them were pretty excited. Floral and fruity on the nose, well integrated alcohol. Very buttery, somewhere a farmer seems to be churning on an alpine meadow. Grain Notes. Bahlsen butter biscuits. Buttery-sweet taste too. Vanilla. Almost light gray notes. You hardly notice the 50%. Floral and slightly soapy but different from the Bowmore soap, it is much sweeter and somewhat chalky here. The finish is medium long, sweet and again these lime notes of very calcareous water.
    I really like it. For 3 years really outstanding quality. Addendum: Overall, however, I find it weaker than the Ballyklicavan. 85 points

  53. thijs100 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    The palate can’t quite keep up. If it had, this would’ve been a 90+ whiskey in my book.
    • Nose
      Young, sweet, fruity spirit on a backdrop of grain. It’s this graininess (rye-like at times) that stood out when I first sniffed it straight out of the bottle and it’s still here now that I’ve got it in my glass. I’m a sucker for that type of aroma, in part because of my preference for unaged or young Schiedam malt wine genever. Enough about the graininess though. I get stone fruits (mango, nectarine) as well as tinned pineapple and raspberry syrup, with just a tinge of Jaffa Cakes. Finally some raw sugar and apfelstrudel with vanilla sauce, which all makes it sounds über sweet, but that’s not the case. It gets fruitier and more tropical over time and the graininess is al but gone now, but then has this mineral edge too. Hard to grasp, in a good way.
    • Taste
      Oily mouthfeel and a somewhat spicy arrival (white pepper, ginger, cloves), followed by some subtle tropical fruits and a caramel sweetness. It has this green, grassy effect on my taste buds as well. Little more spirit-y than the nose suggests.
    • Finish
      Dry and medium in length ending on a syrupy sweetness.

    A very exciting concept. I am a friend of "local Barleys" and so of course this bottling was mandatory.
    I like it a little better than bottling Ballykilcavan. But here, too, a sample is enough for me.

    3 years, 7 months, 27 days old, fermentation time 136.2 hours. The date of barley sowing (23.03.2015), the date of harvesting barley (07.09.2015), the date of arrival of the barley at the distillery (10.05.2016), the average sunshine duration (6 - 6 1/2 hours) in the field and a lot more information will follow. Maximum transparency. Great. You just have to be careful not to get lost in all this information and forget about the whiskey himself (without 'e'!). Because, despite his youth, he's pretty good. Now. To say that it tastes a little like Scotland would probably come close to “blasphemy”. But to say that he is a completely different Irish single malt than you are used to, maybe just works.

    Comparison Bannow Island (BI) / Ballykilcavan (B)

    nose
    BI more floral and fruity than B, B in comparison, more chocolatey and "tastier" in the nose. B shows a slightly sour note in comparison, which he did not show in the solo tasting. B "darker" than BI, B more towards the forest floor, BI more the spring flower meadow.

    taste
    B malty, more chocolate than BI. BI also remains in comparison with its leading floral and fruity note. In comparison, B looks “darker” than in solo tasting. Here even a little damp forest floor and mushrooms.

    Finish
    The two don’t give each other any intensity in the finish, everyone cuts a really good figure in their own way.

    Conclusion comparison
    Different fields, different tastes. That was what Mr. Reynier wanted to prove. Proof successful. TEIREoir. Especially for Ireland with EIRE in the word "terroir". While in solo tasting m. E. the pendulum swings slightly in favor of Bannow Island, it can be found in the direct comparison in the middle of both bottlings. In anticipation of what will come ...

      Very fresh first impression. Spring flower meadow, fresh laundry. Malt, whole milk chocolate. Because of his youth, one looks for green branches, pear notes, perhaps also for warm sheet metal - but: none. Instead, fresh yeast dough, vanilla, honey come in the further nosing. Still the spring flowers, they set the tone (and are tasty at the same time).
    • Taste
      87 87
      Strong, full, creamy and fruity sweet. Ripe strawberries, some rhubarb. Clearly chocolate and caramel. Fresh bread dough. Floral sweetness without being overwhelming. It's amazing how mature it looks on the tongue. Over time peppery seasoning, paprika powder, a hint of chili.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium (actually!) And dry. Malt and sugar beet syrup, honey, ground coffee beans, chocolate, pepper, grated nutmeg, flavored pipe tobacco, dried apricots, cut flowers.

    typically Irish, very fresh, springtime, floral. Very pleasant on the palate, easy to grasp, without any headache. A small complaint? Maybe a little lack of length.

    TOTALLY TRACEABLE & TRANSPARENT

    There’s plenty we would like to share with you about each whiskey. In fact, rather too much for a bottling label – that strange, tiny surface that has been regulated to death.

    Which is why drinkers will be able to access a new feature on the website, currently in beta version with more refinements to come.

    Every bottle of Waterford whiskey features its own pioneering TÉIREOIR code, which once entered online will reveal a host of unprecedented and engaging content related to the release.

    Using rich photography, and drawing upon our unrivalled digital logistics systems that collects thousands of data points, you will be able to explore maps of the place, the harvest, the grower, distillation details as well as view the full spectrum of wood.

    Built upon on our own bespoke software that brings together five data systems from farm to bottle, it has been a remarkable project to collate the data for each release: so watch this space.
