    Chapter 7 - Irish Whisky 14y
    56.7% vol. Bourbon Hogshead Cask No: 10928
    Nose: - an extreme fruit bomb! Mangos, papayas, oranges, apples. Sweet vanilla, malt and dough flavors. Round and harmonious.
    Mouth: - fruity and sweet. Seasoning and pepper. Nougat and chocolate. There is also some oak.
    Finish: - medium long and warming. The fruitiness is clearly dominant in the finish. Some oak and some chocolate again.
    Conclusion: - a great Irishman of Chapter 7!

  2. TastyDram did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    I was rather fond of this Irish single malt. It had some heavy flavours on board. A serious good winter peat alternative (I rated it higher than its sherry-brother) but rather hard to find.
    • Nose
      Fresh, nutty and a little sharp. It’s definitely related to its sherry matured counterpart cask 10836. Cilantro leaf and an Asian spice mix. Blood oranges, dark chocolate and coriander seed. Wood shavings and resin. After some time there’s more chocolate and honey. Even a slight metallic note.

      With water the metal is a bit more pronounced but held in check by a musky note and cumin seeds. A bag of Bounty biscuits with chocolate and coconut.
    • Taste
      Sweet and sharp in the mouth. A delicious combo of honey, chocolate and nuts. Toblerone comes very close. It’s reminding me of older quality grain whiskies. The perfect balance between bitter wood and sweet honey.

      A single drop of water spices up those lovely chocolate notes with some red chilies. Coconut, honey and a silky caramel coating.
    • Finish
      A warm aftertaste with woody accents. Nuts and chocolate. A long finish with uplifting spices.
