  1. wheatfield scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Orange gold pour. Nose is a touch musty with overripe fruits (banana, mango), some green elements (grass) and a bit of alcohol kick. Mouth is sharp and bright. Mouth has much in common with other Irish indies from this period, but this has an interesting musty overripe banana flambe going on. It seemed a bit brash with the first few pours, but it opened up nicely and it's quite good. Pleasantly hot finish. Not my favorite Irish from this period but very good and interesting.

    Nose: Wow, what comes out of the glass here?! Fruity but dull, fantastically sweet, but spicy and peaty? Yes! Smoky malt with fresh, salty lime, leather, dry cardboard and walnuts. Underlaid with traces of honey and a lot of sweetness of tropical fruits.
    Taste: Powerful and powerful with fruity notes and a lot of peaty power! Smoky-dark elements with lots of salty spice and loads of black pepper. With rather dark fruit, leather, cardboard and mint towards the finish.
    Finish: Beautifully long - dull and fresh, still with explosive spiciness, notes of wood, nut, honey and filigree herbs. This malt is not dry at any time, but rather chocolaty-fresh with a lot of sunken orange fruit.
    93 points (nose: 93 / taste: 93 / finish: 92)

    reviewed by Ruben on whiskynotes.be (27/11/2015):Nose: we’ve had this profile before but that doesn’t make it less
    glorious. It’s peated Bushmills, with lovely bananas and mangos, but
    also tobacco leaves, a little cedar and plenty of mentholated notes.
    Hints of maracuja and floral honey. It displays Irish characteristics
    but also something rummy, something old-style Islay and something
    oriental. Intruiging. A curious but wonderful combination. Mouth: the
    same combination of fruit (candy), sherbets and tropical fruit juice
    with ashy notes, mint and Lapsang tea. Probably the most tobacco notes
    of all the sister casks I’ve tried. Briny notes and liquorice towards
    the end. Finish: long, fruity (bananas) and earthy / smoky at the same
    time.
    An Irish malt that brings you back to Bowmore in the 1960s. Simply
    excellent, and to know this was pretty much a one-off experiment from
    Bushmills makes it even more special. I can’t think of a better festival
    bottling. See you in Ostend.
    Score: 93/100
