  1. Ostfriese scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Wonderfully interwoven, fruity and intense aromas form a harmonious overall picture and make this whiskey a great experience in the glass. I find this variety of flavors amazing for the still young bottling. The whiskey surprised me positively.
    • Nose
      The smell of light grapes flows towards my nose. They are followed by passion fruit, pineapple, bananas, honeydew melons and oranges. The smell of a granary mixes with hints of tobacco, ginger, cloves and rosemary.
    • Taste
      It starts very intensely with sweet honey and fudge. This is followed by malty hops mixed with vanilla, citrus aromas, mandarins and peach. Anise and pepper push forward accompanied by cloves. Dark chocolate, milk coffee and roasted aromas followed by slightly earthy and mineral notes form the conclusion.
    • Finish
      Slightly warming, malty granary, oranges and cocoa butter. Slightly spicy aromas waft in the background.

    blind tasting:

    Nose: preserved and fermented fruits, apricots, honey, cereals, shortbread, bouillon cubes, fresh, alcohol cools

    Taste: slight tingling at first, followed by yellow fruits again, sweetness before becoming a bit drier,

    Finish: the fruits become more acidic towards currants, raspberries, more residual sweetness, rather short

    Tip: mixed aging bourbon/sweet wine, maybe bourbon and sherry finish, 52%, max. 10 years
    tip region/ distillery; Highlands, Deanston, Aberfeldy

    Conclusion after resolution:
    I didn't expect such a young malt. The Fassbäkombi seems to fit. I have to admit that I have not been impressed at all with other Waterfords and this is the first that I would rate as okay. Points deducted on the nose because it still seems too alcoholic for 50%
    However, 70 € would still be far too expensive for me. I appreciate a Deanston 12yo more

  8. Dieter_W scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The nose is great. Nice and creamy, fruity, lots of vanilla, sweet, a bit artificial like a freshly opened Haribo confectionery bag. Nice and mild, you don't notice the 50% at all.
    When tasting you notice the percentages and
    three years of maturity is more.
    With lots of pepper, citrus fruits, ginger and cloves.
    Interesting farmer distillery from Ireland, with a lot of potential.
    I'm looking forward to further, older bottlings.

    Very good for a whiskey stored for 3 years and 8 months. Unfortunately, it is to be feared that the prices for the upcoming older bottlings will go through the roof.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Clear malt notes on the nose, which remind me directly of the “Caro coffee” from the past. In addition, something like light caramel chocolate and a fruit similar to a banana.
    • Taste
      84 84
      The aromas are confirmed in the mouth. A bit of alcoholic heat at the beginning, which quickly dissipates. With a little water flowery aromas emerge and the sweetness recedes. A very pleasant mouthfeel throughout.
    • Finish
      82 82
      A bit of oak can be felt in the medium to long finish, but it tends to remain on the sweet side.

    The nose is young, malty, ok, after standing it got better, but the taste continues to be simple and bad ... sad ...

  15. Thermidor scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Tasted blind. Guessed the distillery right after nosing.

    An interesting and pleasing dram I would have liked more than a sample of, but certainly still young and work in progress. I can't for the life of me score these young whiskeys the same as older 10-15yos.
    • Nose
      Fruity and a bit flour-y? Oh, it must be one of these young distilleries, maybe Waterford? If not, then Cotswolds or etc. Wood shavings, faint match heads, probably close to 46% ABV. With some time and a dash of water, the fruitiness dominates. It is that candied fruitiness you often find in these young distillery products.
    • Taste
      Fruity (probably mostly from the casks), with pepper and wood shavings, so a young distillery malt definitely. Maybe 1st fill bourbon + some wine casks? A bit thin on the body, but has a nice oiliness to it. No off-notes or yeastiness.
    • Finish
      Drying and flour-y, and a bit chalky and grassy as well. Doesn't last long.

  20. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I would really like to have an average or - even better - a really bad Waterford in the glass, just to be able to check whether what I pull out of the other bottlings fits at all. In the absence of one, the fact remains that Waterford has some pretty good stuff on the market with its fairly young whiskeys. At Tinnashrule 1.1 I was even tempted to award one more point for a moment, but then I was able to stop myself. In any case, for me the following applies: If you like the style of Waterford in general, you basically don't go wrong with any bottling (farm).
    • Nose
      89 89
      Toffee, malt, nougat, fudge, caramel - it takes straight out what basic flavors Waterford has to offer. With him here, I have the feeling that these flavors come across a little richer, thicker, denser than with other Waterfords. Quince jelly flavored with clove powder, rosemary and thyme, fresh apple compote. Looks like Hook Head 1.1 maritime with its salty sea spray. Fresh yeast dough, ground grain, a freshly mown meadow.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Powerful yet soft start. Very creamy and mouth-filling. Nougat, marzipan, hazelnuts, almonds, malt, milk coffee. Light fruits like apple, quince, green grapes. The feeling of a great density here on the tongue too. All flavors close together and yet very easy to distinguish from one another. Over time, seasoning comes in the form of clove powder, turmeric, rosemary, pepper and chilli flakes. Maritime notes, a warm evening on the beach.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium length, only slightly dry, still a bit creamy. Milk chocolate and white coffee lead the way and still have some pepper and thyme, nougat and caramel, salt and malt in tow.

    One place, one farm, one whiskey. With the Single Farm series, the Irish Waterford distillery is launching single malt whiskies that are intended to reflect the influence of terroir. The Tinnashrule Edition 1.1 is exactly 3 years, 8 months and 14 days old and shows distinct fruit notes accompanied by sweet vanilla, toffee and caramel as well as spicy notes in a recognisable balance. By adding a few drops of water, the whiskey clearly unfolds and gains enormous expressiveness and flavour. Well done for this young age!

    I thank Kirsch Import e.K. for the complimentary sample!

    • Nose
      Light fruity notes on the nose with tropical fruits, melon, a hint of banana as well as pink grapefruit. In addition, orange zest, juicy barley and some ginger spice in the background.
    • Taste
      Sweet start on the palate with vanilla, toffee and malty notes. This is accompanied by apricots, melons and some tart orange. In addition, warming white pepper, toasted bread and some spicy oak towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long with warming notes of barley, slightly bitter pink grapefruit as well as spicy oak.

      With water: After adding a few drops of water, a little more tropical fruit notes on the nose, plus vanilla and spicy oak. Sweeter on the palate with vanilla, caramel, honey and tropical fruits. The spicy warmth is somewhat softened. Additional notes of plum and creamy dark chocolate emerge. The finish is still of medium length with creamy honey, sweet vanilla, caramel and slightly earthy notes, plus tobacco and some spicy oak.

    Shop info:

    "The Tinnashrule 1.1 was bottled exclusively for the German market. ... Thanks to Waterford's radical transparency ethos, we know almost everything about whiskey:

    It comes from the Tinnashrule Farm and is batch 1.1, the first bottling from this farm. The whiskey was matured for exactly 3 years, 8 months and 14 days. The Tinnashrule 1.1 got its aromas from an exciting combination of 46% First Fill Ex-Bourbon barrels, 22% Virgin Oak, 15% French red wine barrels and 17% VDN barrels. VDN stands for "Vin Doux Naturel" and includes ex-Sauternes and sherry barrels.

    The Tinnashrule combines a honey sweetness with fruity notes of citrus peel and fine spicy notes such as cloves, white pepper and aniseed. Dark chocolate, notes of brioches and pink grapefruit make the whiskey a real pleasure. In addition to the unmistakable barrel influence, the long fermentation time of 152 hours also ensured the fruity character of this noble whiskey.

    Tinnashrule Farm is located in County Wexford, north of Enniscorthy. The fertile fields from which the whiskey comes are spread over gently rolling hills. The soil consists mostly of clay and loam. Tinnashrule shows a gentle terroir ... "
