Donwaldorf
Expert Senior Donwaldorf Tasting note

Donwaldorf gave this whisky 89 points
Color
Pale gold
Nose

Un nez double face voir multi facettes, d'une belle complexité. Les premières effluves sont clairement sur les fruits blancs et exotiques. Après quelques instants le nez n'est plus que tourbe et fumaison. Il y a de la coquille et ce je ne sais quoi de minéral. Encore plus tard, nous retrouvons des fruits et surtout de la crème de vanille et du Gâteau fait maison. 

Taste

En bouche cela semble plus clair avec une belle mixité entre tourbe grasse et huileuse et fruits maltés ( moins de fruits qu'au nez quand même ). Il y a des notes de caramel, cacao et vanille. Quand à l'alcool il est intégré à la perfection, pas le moindre défaut.

Finish

Très belle longueur sur l'huile de tourbe et le retour des fruits exotiques. Quelques notes salines font leur apparition ainsi que les épices, la noix de coco et la vanille.

Comments

Un Cooley d'une belle complexité, qui pourra plaire à tout le monde de par ses différents profils. Il reste très atypique dans le monde fruité des "Irish".

Nose : Smoke, seabreeze, citrus, vanilla and some leathery notes.

Mouth : Peat and fruits (yellow, exotic). Vanilla cream.

Finish : Long, creamy, fruity.


Great balance between peat and fruits and nice pastry notes. Almost like a slightly smoked fruits yoghurt.

Tasting from december 2016.

SV;

Cooley 23 yo 1992/2015 (55%, Cadenhead, Irish) Five stars A brand new Cooley by Cadenhead. Please note that I’ve used the picture of an earlier (very good – WF 90) bottling. Probably a barrel as well. Colour: pale gold. Nose: well, how many times have I already told that story about a friend who was pouring young peated Cooley to punters on the parking place of a famous Islay distillery starting with an A, around twelve years ago, and managed to let everyone believe it was young whisky from that very Islay distillery? Indeed, you could think this is a slightly lighter and marginally fruitier A***. Especially love this smoky earthiness, these whiffs of lit cigars, the touches of garam masala and the horse saddle notes. With water: more fruits and more rooty notes. A little more barley as well. Mouth (neat): one of the fruitiest ueberpeaters I’ve tried. Shouldn’t work but it does. Smoky pineapples (not hand-grenades) and peppery litchis, then rather various oranges, especially bitter ones. And blood oranges. Really an unusual style, and this baby still roars like a tiger after 23 years. With water: perfect. Peat and fruits work in tandem, almost like… let’s see, say John Coltrane and Duke Ellington? (S., you’re afraid of nothing.) Finish: long, and rather more on fruits rather than peat this time. Strawberry yoghurt. A rather exceptional signature, as fresh as a baby’s… err, mouth. Comments: I absolutely love this style. Balance is deliciously perfect – what a tango! SGP:556 - 91 points.

I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me, than a full frontal lobotomy.

Assez fermé, avec quelques fruits non identifiés. Il y a de la tourbe, modérément et pas mal de malt. La vanille, intense, émerge peu à peu. L'ajout d'eau ne changera pas grand-chose. Moi qui attendait une bombe de fruits, je suis assez déçu. En bouche, c'est bien plus intéressant ! Très doux, fluide et souple comme on l'attend d'un irish, l'alcool est parfaitement intégré. L'ajout d'eau de rend plus vif et épicé, faisant oublier qu'il a quand même 23 ans ! Le toucher de bouche est vraiment chouette ! En fin de bouche, ENFIN ! Les fruits exotiques, les voilà ! Qui perdurent, perdurent dans la longue finale !

Enthousiasme 3/5

Cadenhead's notes:

Irish Whiskey (Peated) from Cooley Distillery, Eire 1992 23y/o 55%

Nose: Clotted cream, custard creams, vanilla custard and very soft sweet smokiness.
Taste: More smoke than the nose suggests; creamy with raspberry jam, strawberry yoghurt and salted butter.
Finish: Initially very creamy then a dry ashy smokiness builds along with gooseberries and olive oil.
