Whisky Reviews for Ireland 1988 DD

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.56 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Huge exotic fruits on the nose, but unfortunately they tend to disappear for a wiser malted profile. Each drop of water added back up. Great flexibility in the mouth that gives way to a smashing return of the fruits of the nose in the final. Enthusiasm 4/5

  2. aphex scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Face to face on march 2017 with Ireland 26 yo 1989 (49.8%, The Nectar of the Daily Drams & LMDW, 2015)

    Nose : The expected fruity nose with exotic notes (banana, pineapple) and a touch of apple. Stewed fruits, vanilla. It's not as exuberant as other Irishes but it's very nice.
    Mouth : Fresh. Great balance between fruits, floral, herbal notes and spices. Not much to say.
    Finish : Long, fruits are lingering with nice sweet and spicy notes.

    Not überfruity, not too sweet, just very well done.

    Tasting note by Serge Valentin - Whiskyfun

    Ireland 27 yo 1988/2015 (49.5%, The Nectar of the Daily Drams)  More medieval torture (on the label). Colour: gold. Nose: wait. Sunflower oil, apple compote, ripe bananas, butter cream, tinned pineapple, custard… We’re close to the best of what’s made at some northern place that starts with a B. Nope, certainly not Bruichladdich. Bowmore? Come on… Shall I quote marshmallows and Haribo again? Mouth: it is just perfect. No faults, only Irish goodness, sweet and fruity, not dull, not too sweet, light yet full, floral and fruity, with a perfect herbal backbone. Chamomile, wormwood. That’s very, super, hyper cool. Finish: sweet wines are kicking in. I’m thinking the best sweet chenins from Loire (Chaume and thereabouts), or perhaps these rare Riesling Vendanges Tardives from dear Elsass. Hoppla! Comments: there, we found our 90. Very well done, Mario, but the label… … … SGP:651 - 90 points.

  4. Blo scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A killer, this one is on the top of my Irish whiskies.

    Tasted at Whisky Live Paris 2015.
    • Nose
      Very expressive, with tons of flowers from the camps in spring, this is also fresh. Very Irish. Bushmills ?
    • Taste
      Wowow ! Vibrant but fresh and subtle at the same time, so tastefull, very floral and fruity. Definitely a Bushmills.
    • Finish
      Very long, on sugar fruits, almost candied. Excellent.
