  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Quite surprised by the profile of this Irishman given his reputation. In my glass, the fruit was clearly behind the influence of the sherry.
    • Nose
      89 89
      The first nose is quite grassy. Seaweed, pu erh, salted butter caramel.
      We continue on leather, tobacco, cigar. It's fat.
      Sherry takes the lead with cocoa, from the old book.
      Wood, nutmeg, clove. Dry wood.
      The fruit is very discreet. Plum, prunes, rancio. After 45 minutes of aeration we have a little passion fruit, mango, papaya. We had to go get them.
    • Taste
      92 92
      In the mouth the alcohol is very well integrated and oily.
      We are on the very efficient big sherry.
      Cherry, strawberry, passion, mango, orange, papaya, raisins.
      Leather, shoe polish, milk chocolate, cocoa bean.
      Embrun, black tea, salted butter caramel, oreo.
      Dry wood.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Final on wood, milk chocolate, liquorice, plum, orange zest, raisins.

    Enthusiasm: Nose and finish 5/5 Palate: 4/5 Whisky n ° 1746
    • Nose
      Big sherry, cooked fruits caught by the exotic fruits. Chocolate. Grape juice. Sweet and generous and fragrant. Toasted notes. Cinnamon. Wow.
    • Taste
      On the palate, a touch of austerity and restraint, but still these exotic fruits, pear, spice chocolate.
    • Finish
      Final exotic wish. A hint of vegetal notes evoking Littlemill. Gourmet and long!

  3. nallacam scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Full sherry aroma paired with the fruitiness of a typical Irish.
    An absolute outlier in the positive sense. I had tried it blindly after a 1921 Cagnoc, the resemblance was striking.

    On the nose, herbaceous freshness followed by a bit of cold tobacco (drums or amsterdamer), the sherry comes out at once with the feeling of old, dry and moldy grapes, which gives even more length in the nose; creamy and chocolatey.
    • Nose
      fresh and sherry that complement each other !! still a little mold, but some herbs too
      spices on gingerbread.
    • Taste
      a multitude of flavors, velvety under the tongue, well macerated fruits, well-moistened wood, spices strong enough to raise this sensation even further.
      back from a minty and kernel side.

  5. Bishlouk scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    The best Irish I've ever tasted so far. A treat from start to finish. It's fine, sweet, melted, consistent, fresh while being greedy, easy to access and dangerously drinkable. A total success.
    • Nose
      At first, it sends heavy. Ripe white grapes, herbaceous and floral freshness, Christmas spices, dried grapes and apricot, a hint of tobacco, frangipane, dark chocolate with orange, some hazelnuts ... All that? Yes, and even more. And all these scents form a whole that holds the road. It augurs a lot of good things for the future ...
    • Taste
      ... and this suite does not disappoint. Ground coffee, dried tree leaves, chocolate, orangette, raisins in shambles, apricots. A few grassy wavelets pass from time to time. Peppery hazelnut and candied currant.
    • Finish
      Average. Christmas spices are resurfacing. Slight woody drought. A very slight grassy smoke rises in the nostrils (Ho? A trace of peat?).

  6. Korre scored this whisky 93 points Expert Junior

    Wonderful sherried Irish whisky. From nose to finish, a great experience of flavours. These Irish whiskies keep surprising and booming and the Nectar keeps bottling beauties...
    For me personally, the best Irish I've had so far, although the one from the Whisky Fair isn't that far away, but totally different

  7. SimonOHA scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Superb sherry with a well-deserved reputation.
    • Nose
      On the nose we are on a fresh and perfectly melted sherry, then candied fruits. Chocolatey and syrupy.
    • Taste
      On the palate, it is thick and entirely envelops the mouth with aromas of cherry and mango. Very balanced and evolving on orange and leather. A hint of cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Very long finish on Corinthian grapes and wood.

    Three Irish whiskys bottled in 2015 for the nectar under “the saints” label…bought all 3 when released…12,14 and this 23 years aged whopper! What a threesome, what a dram, i liked them all…this is one of the best Irish i ever had!

    Nose on raisins, blood orange, heady aromas of rose.
    In the mouth it is very fresh, slightly spicy (cinnamon?), With powerful aromas, and what surprises the most is this mango juice that comes out of nowhere and lines the mouth for an endless finish ...

  12. juju cassoulet scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A very nice irish sherry, my first? Too bad the nose is not at the same level as the mouth. I am a little disappointed because I expected more, however when it came out there had not yet been all these Irish wonders that now reference.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Alcohol and light sherry. With the empty glass it turns into a beautiful Irish bouquet of ripe fruit.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Alcohol is not very well integrated, it is necessary to proceed cautiously.
      The start is spicy then the sherry develops with exotic fruits in a beautiful marriage. But alcohol remains present.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Long on exotic fruits.

  13. Jnpons scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Magnificent mahogany color, copper reflections.

    An enchanting nose, on exotic fruit, melon, pear. A touch of wild strawberry.
    In the background, a little toasted gingerbread, accompanied by a zest of grapefruit marmalade.
    We also smell a little spice, such as pepper.

    On the palate, an exotic, sustained candy shakes us up as it should, spicy fruit.

    A good late afternoon tea time whisky, with baked apples.

    Conclusion: a magical nose, I expected more complex on the palate. That said, it remains superb !!

  14. Zinni scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    ... tasted blind ...
    • Nose
      93 93
      heavy sherry with clear raisins (PX?), noticeable but not stinging alcohol, after a few minutes icing sugar spreads in the glass, freshly roasted coffee
    • Taste
      91 91
      superficial honey sweetness (dark forest honey), almost sticky, bitter orange, orange peel, Christmas
    • Finish
      92 92
      definitely not a new-fashioned sherry ... was only on Glendronach because of the nose ... the honey reminded me a lot of Balvenie ... Could be a TUN 1401 (although it is almost too alcoholic) ...

    Old style, old sherry - great
    • Nose
      90 90
      Black tea, sea weed, smoked fish, soy sauce, herbal, little tarry, hints of sherry wod, spices, cloves, nutmeg, toffee - interesting but not bad
    • Taste
      93 93
      Little punchy, very oily, creamy, thick, mellow, milk chocolate, subtle sweetness, tobacco, espresso, dried fruits, nutty, old sherry wood - great
    • Finish
      92 92
      Long, warm, old wood but not drying

  16. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Leather dried exotic fruits, Christmas spices, apricot, marzipan, really nice finish. The sherry tends to tame a bit the tropical fruitiness though. Very good.

  17. aphex scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Quick notes from a blind tasting.
    Just the best Irish I tasted so far.
    Usually sherried Irish are a tad too oaky for me but this one had a perfect balance between the sherry and the usual irish exoticness with just enough oak to support everything.
    • Nose
      A great mix of red and exotic fruits (juice and jams), leather, dried fruits, honey, a veil of smoke.
    • Taste
      Red and exotic fruits again, dried fruits, citrus, leather, pepper and light oak. Perfectly balanced.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy and lightly smoky.

    • Nose
      Extremely fruity - peach, fresh mango, melon and papaya. Tobacco leafs, cinnamon and marzipan.
    • Taste
      Forest fruits - raspberries, mango tea, crème brûlée
      and later more spices - cloves.
    • Finish
      Chocolate, cherries and syrup.

  20. Jeep51 scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Excellent, complex and very fresh. Not tiring at all, it is drunk like whey. [05/2015]
    • Nose
      The slap. Huge freshness despite the color. It is extremely complex and rich. Small crushed berries (blackcurrant, blackberries), blackcurrant bud, orange marmalade and raisins. A grassy and fresh character that brings lightness and a surplus of class to this nose. Then come chocolate and raspberry ganache and always exotic fruits in the background and become more and more present. We do not get tired so much it's fresh, delicate and ultra complex. We almost do not want to drink it.
    • Taste
      And we would be wrong ... The attack is immediately more spicy, more woody and very rich. There are a lot of similarities with the nose: small berries, exotic fruits, oranges and dried fruits (grapes and figs). Leather, tobacco, very light smoke and hot spices ...
    • Finish
      Very long, peppery, minty and all in freshness. The spices are still there and there is a very slight dryness / bitterness that gives a little pep.

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2015/1991er-irish-single-malt-adelphi-daily-dram-whisky-agencys-private-stock-36572/ Color: Old Gold
    Nose: Heavy caramel-chocolate notes with a very high cocoa content, orange biscuits with sticky jam stains (Jaffa Cakes orange biscuits). This weighty side is perfectly complemented by an airy-floral component, which comes along with a powerful amount of smoke. Sweet honey, raisins and aromas of rum complete the nose.
    Taste: Starts with a very thin consistency, which, however, immediately turns into an explosive Wumps. Oranges, rum, raisins, malt, chocolate, lots of smoke, spicy chili and cayenne pepper with lots of minerality and well-packed, well-packed wood notes.
    Finish: Super long - with spicy tea aromas and herbs, spicy pepper and a great combination of wood, chocolate, cocoa, Turkish mocha and smoky campfire.
    Remark: Rating-wise a continuous back and forth between 92 and 93 points.
    92 points (nose: 93 / taste: 92 / finish: 92)
