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) Five stars 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.

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.

Comments

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

Tasted at Whisky Live Paris 2015.

Bottles are meant to be opened and tasted, not stared in a shelve !
