Nose

Eine Nase voll dunkler Früchte: Ein Kompott aus reifen roten Trauben, Brombeeren und Johannisbeeren, vermischt mit getrockneten Feigen, Datteln und Rosinen. Fein würzig, ledrig, edrig.

Taste

Kräftig, voll und pot still-würzig im Antritt. Obwohl "All Sherry"-gereift, ist der Gaumen nicht sherrydominant, sondern tendiert mit einer Note von getrockneten Früchten eher ins Feinherbe. Leichte Würze von Süßholz und weißem Pfeffer, die hinten heraus kräftiger wird.

Finish

Der Abgang ist lang und voller Gewürze. Hier kommen auch nochmal die erdigen und ledrigen Noten aus der Nase wieder.

Comments

Wenn man hier mit einer "All Sherry Limited Edition" eher den zuckersüßen Fruchtpunsch befürchtet, wird man angenehm enttäuscht. Es überwiegen die erdigen und würzigen Noten, die durch die Reifung im Sherryfass in Facon gehalten werden.

Nose

a load of fruit, spices and oak. quite grainy but not unpleasant at all. bananas, pineapple, mango.
also earthy notes, moss, fern.
nicely balanced

Taste

initially sweet but then getting a bit dryer.
very fruity and spicy, a little oaky too.
again a nice balance.creamy mouthfeel

Finish

relatively long wit a dry spiciness

Comments

really a nice dram. meanwhile too expensive.
the 21 is the better choice at a lower price.
but this is good whisky!
88/100

Aus einer Nachricht der Destillerie (21.01.16):

Mano a Lámh, gone but not forgotten.

It’s true. We are writing to let you know that all two thousand bottles of our limited edition, all sherry, Redbreast Mano a Lámh are gone. Every last drop.

my fav redbreast replacing CS12

increased rating after half way through bottle, some oxygen contact definitely improves the experience.

Nose:
Marzipan and Battenburg Cake rise from the glass with a surprisingly large amount of vanilla for an ‘all-oloroso’ offering. This has some spirituous notes but this is one of those occasions where this is a positive as it provides a platform for the lovely, sweet flavours to play. Light and airy but with hidden depth.

Palate: This is a smooth whiskey with a sweet back palate, some frozen red berries and hot vanilla sauce on top. It is terribly easy to drink, as you would expect from a Redbreast, but a block of ice really takes this up a level to a longer, more sipping whiskey. The flavours from the nose deliver on the palate too.

Finish: Sweetened vanilla custard, almonds and some milk chocolate praline.

Overall: Well, there we have it folk... the rise of Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey doesn’t seem fleeting, or limited to core expressions. It seems to be strong, and rising.

"-Mano a Lámh has no age statement to allow our Master Blender, Billy Leighton further freedom to choose from a range of ages to achieve his desired profile. We can advise however that the youngest whiskey used is 13 years old. "

Nose

Very deep dried fruit notes, raisins and sultanas with the more earthy tones of figs, dates and prunes. The sweetness is from the fruit and balances perfectly with pot still spices such as dill and black pepper, and the contribution of the toasted Spanish oak.

Taste

Silky smooth and deceptively sweet. Full of rich ripe dark fruit with the leisurely emergence of the signature spices

Finish

The rich fruit slowly gives way to the perfections of the Spanish oak.
