Whisky Reviews for Irish Malt 1991 Sb

  1. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    http://www.whiskynotes.be/2015/irish-whisky/irish-single-malt-1991-sansibar/

    Irish single malt 24 yo 1991 (50,2%, Sansibar ‘Samurai’ 2015, bourbon cask, 232 btl.) Nose: it has this typical tropical fruitiness (lime, green banana, green mango, pineapple) but in a lighter way than some others. There’s also the peaty side, wet tobacco leafs, a little camphor. Excellent, just a tad less expressive. Mouth: this time more peppermint, eucalyptus and other lightly medicinal touches. Hints of smoked fish. Granadilla, cara cara, pink grapefruit and bananas in the background. Citrus green tea. Salty liquorice. Finish: long, with lots of salt, leafy notes and smoke.

    This one has more prominent leafy and medicinal notes compared to some of the other 1991s. Excellent whisky, no doubt, just a little less sexy because of the lower fruitiness.

    Irish Malt 24 yo 1991/2015 (50.2%, Sansibar, bourbon, 232 bottles)
    The label’s so funny! It’s a if Yamazaki were putting leprechauns or
    Celtic harps onto their labels… Colour: straw. Nose: wait wait wait,
    this is different. It’s got ‘green’ smoke, lapsang souchong, garden
    bonfire, tobacco, cigars, green banana skin… And even summer truffle
    (tuber aestivum) and dried mint leaves. Right, mint tea. Quite
    different, very nice. No water need at 50.2%, pfff…  Mouth: I find this
    totally perfect, really. That’s because I adore menthol, truffles, and
    all things mildly smoky. Lapsang again, cigar ashes, salty/smoked fish…
    What it may lack is a little more complexity, but we’re nitpicking.
    Finish: quite long, with a perfectly un-Scottish kind of green and salty
    smoke. A touch of gewürztraminer in the aftertaste – and bananas of
    course. Really. Comments: we’re bordering perfection. SGP:643 - 89 points.
