    http://www.weinkenner.de/2014/drei-whiskys-aus-dem-bourbonfass-von-der-gruenen-insel-34256/ Color: straw yellow
    Nose: Green-flowery with mineral salt, gooseberries, quince, mirabelle, pineapple and creamy-sweet honey. But also with notes of straw and hay, creamy sweets and vanilla. After prolonged breathing, more and more intensive rubbers develop.
    Taste: Sweet, but at the same time tart and salty. Pineapple juice, black pepper and getting saltier and saltier. Notes of a glowing fuse as well as of herbs, fir resin and sweet, ripe apples develop dominant towards the end of the taste.
    Finish: Long - mineral-salty with aromas of white chocolate, vanilla, black tea, pine needles and tart peppermint leaves.
    90 points (nose: 89 / taste: 90 / finish: 90)

    I haven't had many Irish whiskies so far. however, this one is of exceptional quality. I don't think there are many casks of 76 tomatins left in the warehouses so I am curious to find an alternative supply of fruity whiskies, glad I've found one
    • Nose
      fruity, clean  and slightly herbal
    • Taste
      light and smooth almost silky. considering this dram is bottled straight from the cask at 50% abv that comes surprisingly (thanks to the triple distillation process:-)
    • Finish
      ... definitely the highlight, no doubt about it.

      a stunning fruitiness driven by blackcurrant as the dominating flavor, love it!
