Nose

fruchtig, gelbe Früchte, mit Karamell und Vanille. Intensiv. Richtung Birne, Quitte, mit einer recht prononcierten Würzigkeit.

Taste

erst süss, dann fruchtig, Quitte und Minze mit einer süssen intensiven Würze. Etwas Zitrone gemischt mit Vanille.

Finish

mittellang. es bleibt die Eichenwürze mit einer  leichten fruchtigen Süsse, mit Minze.

Comments

gefällt mir gut. Ich finde diese Potstills aus Irland haben eine typische intensive fruchtige Würze.

Zeer rijke fruitige neus, zoete vruchten, tropische vruchten als ananas, mango, perzik. Een vleugje vanille er onder.

Taste

Zacht, fruitige smaak. Klein bittertje op de achtergrond. Rijk en vol.

Finish

Mooie, volle, romige finish. Medium.

Comments

Zeer fijne Ier.

Nose

Aromas of fruit compote, cinnamon and clove. A good clean streak running through it, but the rich spiciness  dominates.

Taste

A touch drier than expected, with austere peppery spice, making its presence felt, but sweetened up with spicy oak and fresh apple and mango.

Finish

Dry peppery and spicy.

Comments

Different and much better than the 12. years. 46% is better.

Sweet fruity sherry. Berries (gooseberry, blackberry), apples, caramel, raisins, roasted almonds.

Taste

Sweet fruity sherry again. Berries cooked and stewed. Some leather way in the back.

Finish

Medium. Red and dark fruit gums. Some vegetables in the back.

Comments
Here you have the Irish thick character from the single Pot Still.
Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10

Tipp: Redbreast? Müsste auf jeden Fall ein Ire sein. Sehr weich und ausgewogen. Am Ende aber noch mal mit Kraft. Den 12er von RB habe ich im Schrank und er ist eigentlich einer meiner Lieblingsiren und der kommt dem hier sehr nah!

Sehr schön! Vielen Dank. Den kannte ich noch nicht. Ein sehr guter Starter. Macht Lust auf mehr...

Nose

Bourbon-y,  with sweet malt, kindergarten glue, pine needles, juniper, and fudge. It's all well pronounced, but gentle. 

Taste

Oily and sweet, very pleasant with a gentle touch of spice. The bourbon-like influence becomes even more evident, with it's glue-ish and pine needle taste. The fudge and cinnamon are well in balance, and there is some soft pepper.

Finish

Relatively short, but it keeps returning. Now, the warming spice gets louder. It's a good mix of sweet and spicy. 

Comments

Well-balanced and well-made whiskey. Definitely one for the category spicy & sweet, but an essential dram.

Cheers! Paul

A showdown between Colin Dunn vs Joe Clark. Three drams each, blind. Joe's no.#2


N: Burnt butterscotch, creamy fudge, grain like,... Malted & unsalted barley - so it could be Irish.

T: Again, a little butterscotch. Strong, gravelly and seemingly stronger than the last four drams [starting here WB]. Edgy, grain led development 

F: Takes time to unravel and finishes well.

C: Why did the Irish use un-malted barley - because of the malt tax imposed on them. This works, it's style and character both strong. Now Colin's final dram: WB



Scores a C+
