Whisky Reviews for Single Malt Irish Whiskey 1991 RK

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.31 points

  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Tasted just after the "Historic Series No.4". We are generally in the same vein, with a little less exoticism and more earthy aromas.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very similar to many Irish of those years.
      We have the characteristic fruitiness, but the nose is a little shy, smothered.
      Pineapple, mango, papaya, lemon, grapefruit.
      Green wood, pepper, liquorice, eucalyptus.

      With aeration we have hints of red fruits, leather, caramel.
    • Taste
      88 88
      In the mouth it is also a little closed.
      Quince, peach, granny apple, melon, lemon, bergamot, grapefruit. It's a little less exotic than other Irish.
      Wood, light leather, tobacco, cigar, undergrowth. Black pepper, dry herb, light smoke.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long and simple finish on fruit, smoke and pepper. Caramel

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Immediately recognizable as one of the Irish bottlings that came out in the last couple years that were distilled in 1989-1991... Need to coax some of the fruits to come out but this is certainly in the same spectrum. However, as compared to some of the better barrels, this one is slightly more closed in terms of the nose, and not as fruity in the palate. Still good but slightly short of 90 points. 

  3. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Not the most fruity irish though the usual notes are there, quite nice nonetheless
