  1. 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).

      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.

  2. 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.

    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 ... "
