  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    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!

  2. 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?).

    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

    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.

    Leather dried exotic fruits, Christmas spices, apricot, marzipan, really nice finish, delicious!

  7. 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.

  8. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Whiskybase the Gathering 2017
    • 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.

  9. wisekycourse scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    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.
