  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    So let's try another rare whiskey from Cork Distilleries Co. This whiskey was distilled in the Old Midleton distillery (closed in 1975) and bottled somewhere in the 1960's. Reminds me in a sense of the famous pot still whiskey's of John Power and John Jameson, at that time the big competitors of Cork Distillers. A sample from a bottle of The Auld Alliance Bar in Singapore.
    • Nose
      It starts dusty with cereal grains and potato skins. Followed with floral notes of cut grass, nettle and fern plants. Hints of Chamomile tea. Hay and heather as well. After a while it reveals more of classic oily pot still characteristics of dried apricots and figs. Old leather at the background.
    • Taste
      Unexpectedly heavy and waxy mouthfeel. Very creamy. Peel zest and orange marmalade. Sweet-bitterness of grapefruit. A little toffee and cinnamon. Later on nuttiness with hints of chocolate too. Touch of tobacco at the end. There are many things to discover in this whiskey.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Dry. Spices of black pepper and nutmeg. Ginger. Liquorice at the end. Well balanced.
