    The 1995 Malaga Cask edition has been matured in ex-bourbon and ex-oloroso sherry butts initially for 10 years before being vatted and matured for a further 14 years in ex-Malaga sweet wine casks. €400 per bottle with 2491 bottles available.

    It's very good, the winey side bothers me a bit because I am sensitive to it but I think that whoever appreciates it will be satisfied! The Irish type profile is a little hidden by the barrel.
    • Nose

      Tobacco, leather, dried fruits on the nose, we are completely in the Sherry. Unfortunately, I find there a slightly vinous note that I do not appreciate, such as banyuls.

      On the palate this winey side, rancio is confirmed. We feel a small fruity explosion that draws on the exotic, spices such as cinnamon, star anise. The alcohol is present despite a long aeration.

      The finish is long, refreshing well marked on fruity Sherry and citrus fruits.

    One of the best whisk(e)ys I've tasted in many a year and that from a Scotsman!! Like Christmas with hints of Lemon and other citrus tones, the fantastic taste lingers a long time. Wee bit pricey but worthy.

    One of the top whiskeys I've tried this year. 25 year old whiskey - half of which was aged in Oloroso for 10 years and the other in Bourbon. Both were married and re-casked for another 14 years in Malaga casks.

      Amazing nose with lots of pronounced notes

      Oily, great mouthfeel. Plums and cherry then spice. An explosion of flavours. You'd expect less the second sip but again... boom!

      Long and keeps on giving.

    Now this is something you should expect from Ireland's "oldest" distillery. Very very lovely. Compared to Muscatel 2008 the nose is less sweet, less wine-y, still very floral and fruity though. But the taste is very well rounded, sweet honeycomb with hint of vanilla, raisins and plums with slight citrusy note somewhere far away. And I got that nice tingle on the tip of my tongue I usually get only with Madeira finishes. Too bad I only got a dram.
