  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Ultra fragrant. Various cereals, biscuits accompanied by fresh fruits en masse! Wood chips. Some flowers. The caramel appears and takes the ascendant.
    • Taste
      Suave, sweet spices. Relief. A little fine in texture maybe. Exotic fruits.
    • Finish
      Exotic fruit nectar! Embellished with an anthology of sweet spices!

      Nose and mouth: 4/5
      Final 5/5

    Fruity and floral nose. Peach in syrup, blood orange, butter, wax. White flower, rose. I am not generally a fan of the flower but it is superbly integrated.
    In mouth. It's round and oily. A superb Irish

    Face to face on march 2017 with Ireland 27 yo 1988 (49.5%, The Nectar of the Daily Drams & LMDW, 2015)
    My old notes were almost copy paste for both whiskies.
    Overall a tad more complex and fruity than its brother. I'm wondering if the other one didn't fade a little. Anyway this 26 years old was excellent.
    • Nose
      Exotic notes (banana, passion fruits). Check. A touch of apple. Check. Stewed fruits, vanilla. Check. But I have some yellow fruits, mint and a tart feeling.
    • Taste
      Round, fresh and fruity (peach, passion fruits, banana). Custard. Spices.
    • Finish
      Long, fruits are lingering with nice sweet notes and a few spices. Mouth watering salty notes.

    Yellow and exotic fruits, melon, kiwi, an organic note and acid disturb me deeply even if I find it less marked than in Teeling 21, the alcohol is a little felt. Attack sweet and fruity, almost tart but giving way to this acid note. Fortunately it quickly fades and the finish is more woody, with a slight astringency. The length is correct with a return of the fruit on a tannic frame. Not my profile, even after the dilution that makes him good. Best in the second pass after a lot of aeration.

    pale gold color, nose full of very ripe fruit, yellow fruits and exotic fruits especially, mango, papaya, melon, kiwi ... Mouth in the same spirit, well integrated alcohol, spices on the finish. Final of medium length, a little more spicy and a little less fruity.

    fruity, pear, mango, apricot, wonderfully aromatic, like jam. In addition cake dough, vanilla, just delicious

    soft, fruity Pear and apricot are in the foreground, a light alcoholic tingling on the palate supports the fruit still, very great whisky.

    warm, long fruity, mainly pear

    super delicious, great drink, everything, sweet, fruity, with a nice alcoholic tingle

    Note: 94P
