  1. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Interesting, would be quite delicious without the obtrusive sulfur note. Too bad.

  2. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Dolles thing. A really nice Irishman. I tried the colleagues without water. For what ?!
    • Nose
      The colleague starts fresh. Followed by a spicy, slightly dirty Sherrynote. Has something from Soupbrew. I like it. Leather, Erdal shoe polish, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, moist tobacco, mineral. Something like freshly beaten sandstone. Ripe, dark fruit. Toasted vanilla with chocolate. Slight citrus notes in the background.
    • Taste
      Creamy, sweet start. Then the alcohol pushes the spicy, dark fruits. Plum jam, gingerbread, light citrus notes, overripe cherries. Has something of Black Forest cake. But also the damp tobacco is there. Nutty bitterness.
    • Finish
      Short to medium. First creamy, then dry and a bit bitter. And then the creaminess comes back and covers the mouth and palate.

    A gentle Irishman, extremely tasty - and chocolate makes you happy
    • Nose
      A lot of chocolate, a real chocolate bomb, raisins, overripe plums, cinnamon and other Christmas spices, thickened plum chutney, nougat chocolates
    • Taste
      Creamy on the tongue, chocolate cream cake, star anise and cinnamon
    • Finish
      Rather short
