Whisky Reviews for Ireland 1989 DD

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Exotic fruits delicious (mango, among others). I look up at the sky of pleasure, because I waited for them firmly. Fresh grass. Then, more discreet, vanilla, caramel, toasted wood, baked bread. In the mouth, silky texture where we find all the exotic fruits with a balance sweet / bitter a little wobbly. Wood tannins maybe. 42.2 °? Is it a deliberate reduction option or is the Gulf Stream making angels very thirsty in Ireland? Finale on the exotic fruits again - it's the red thread of this dram - which draws limit on the chewing gum, but it dries up very quickly - evoking in passing a drink with vermouth - and delivering a rather strong bitterness . I was expecting more greed here.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    n: very fresh and fragrant, loads of sweet-sour fruits, mango and green apple.
        a little mint and freshly mown grass. after a few minutes its getting a little spicier
        and the oak shines through but not much.
    t:  initially sweet with a creamy mouthfeel. it is bursting with tropical fruits like mango, lychees and a few tangerines. also perfumy, maybe a tad too much.
    f: long on these lovely fruit coctail.
    comments: very good, just a little too perfumy for my taste

    The nose is completely WAOUW!
    • Nose
      Basket of exotic fruits freshly diced (banana, pineapple, mango). Very present floral freshness. Slightly spicy.
    • Taste
      Fruit peel, grapefruit zest, lots of fruits everywhere!
    • Finish
      Small tingling of sweet spices. Fruity drying declining.

    The best Rum Cask I've tasted!
    • Nose
      It smells too good !! Banana (unmissable), sweet mango (ditto), melon, haribo candy, rum dessert, cannel and ginger. Exotic to death!
    • Taste
      The same! Exotic fruits, cane sugar and spicy spice are all well-known. It's mellow and round, a treat. A flat: lack of punch ..
    • Finish
      Long, slightly woody but still fruity.
