    As I work from time to time for Dingle, I won't comment or rate and I'll just publish my tasting notes.
    • Nose
      Spicy and fruity at first, with a slight sourness. Pot still spices play around wild blackberries and blueberries, dates, figs and raisins. Candied ginger, old books, some dried herbs (tarragon, thyme) and dried flowers in a pot pourri. A sourness seems to come from citrus fruits, maybe oranges and pink grapefruit with sugar dusted on it.
    • Taste
      Spicy and a bit sour arrival, with milk chocolate and roasted coffee beans. The flowers and herbs from the nose can be found on the palate as well, so do the fruits. A little bit of wood invites itself to the palate, I wonder if the Oloroso casks were made from Spanish wood.
    • Finish
      Floral, with cough syrup, caramel, a touch of wood. Slightly drying, quite long.

    Sample note. Single pot still means butter and butterscotch notes. The nose has neither of these, rather peach, yoghurt, and a touch of marzipan. No butterscotch on the palate either. Quite a dose of oak that drowns out the apple and yoghurt. Interesting but too much wood for my liking.

      ... short with vanilla, spice and salty walnut.

  6. Drum scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Fresh and light, but I couldn't find the sherry. I liked the popping association with the fishing shop, there was a coarse fish attractant called "Brasem" and you never forget that smell.
    • Nose
      Fresh and grassy with apples and citrus. I find a light rubber note in the background, which flares up again and again. Honey with white wine and light gummy bears or fruit gums. Overall a light nose.
    • Taste
      Fresh and wine notes, white wine spritzer. A bit thin but at the end I find grapes, biscuit and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Mild and marzipan aromas. A fresh, tingling and mentholic feeling sets in which becomes oily. Rhubarb and some fishing gear mixed in: rod lacquer and carp attractant.

  16. SRB scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      87 87
      A bit earthy, sour at the beginning, then it becomes flowery and fruity. Different herbs like rosemary, tarragon, and something I can't name exactly.
      Spices and old books?

      The Oloroso finish comes through every now and then, but is quickly displaced by the bourbon.

      The nose is almost a little too complex for me, or rather too restless.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Like the nose, but drier than expected and very "robust" for the 46.3%.
      The bourbon comes through stronger here.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium long, very dry and slightly bitter notes at the end.

  17. mydramofwhiskey scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Butterscotch, some earthy tones, shortbread, cocoa
    • Taste
      Sultanas, dark chocolate, malty (in a Dingle-whiskey kind of way) then it gives some pot still spice in form of ginger spices. Really lively.
    • Finish
      Short to medium

  18. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    So this year Bourbon and Oloroso Casks, according to a statement by Graham Coull - Master Distiller at Dingle - in a ratio of 73% first fill Bourbon Casks and 27% first fill Oloroso Casks.
    In contrast to the 3rd release, in which port casks were used instead of the Oloroso casks, the 4th release is less sweet, more in the area of dark forest berries and blackberries than it has sweet raspberries and strawberries. It appears more mature and more sedate. And it should now also be a year older than its predecessor - around 7 years? In any case, a very nice single pot still, slowly but surely developing into a classic.
    • Nose
      A spicy, fruity start with notes of forest berries, blackberries, plums, dried figs and dates. Pleasantly intense and varied pot still spices, which mainly manifest themselves in the form of cardamom, tarragon, thyme, savory and turmeric. Milk chocolate, café au lait, warm toffee, honey and fudge. A deciduous forest in summer. Spices, fruits and chocolate / caramel notes complement each other perfectly.
    • Taste
      A mirror image of the nose, with the difference that chocolate notes and roasted espresso beans play a role right from the start of tongue contact. Otherwise you will find the berries from the nose immediately in the dry start, their counterpart, the pot still spices, also not hold back. Here now a larger proportion of delicately bitter spices, more tarragon, thyme and savory than turmeric. Grapes, plums, dried figs, but also a lot of chocolate and some marzipan bread.
    • Finish
      Medium to long (sic!) And dry. Does not rest, does not become thin or watery, does not fray, gives everything until the not so bitter end. The fruits linger for a long time, pleasantly covered by the still present spices.
