- Excellent whisky. Unlike any other single malt that is around.
Underripe bananas, lychees, vanilla extract, mango ice cream. There's loads of fruit here, but that's to be expected with these Irish single malts. A hint of charcoal and fermented veggies too. Excellent.
Subtle notes of menthol and cough syrup (which is usually something reserved for pure pot still). Quite herbacious too. Mango makes an encore, and there's papaya too, with loads of other tropical influences.
Herbal and fruity. Medium in length.
- Love the nose. A bit in your face.
Peach. Bananas. Mango. Vanilla. Raspberry jam.
The tropicalness just continues. Has a bit jammy development as well.
Medium - Long finish. Raspberry jam is back. Very fruity. Spicy. Slight metallic touch
‘Fass’ [in German] means cask. Fassle is the diminutive of fass, so it may translate from German to English as whisky ‘caskette’ for example. Thank you AS, i hope i understood that right.
N: Buttery plimsoles, 1980's Puma bags [double handled, blue with a grey logo - remember the craze?], smoked-charcoaled 'street-food' chestnuts, oily cereal fruits [soft green],.... already enough to marvel at but there's heaps here. Joyful.
T: Complexities aside, this is instantly likeable & super-drinkable. I spent much time further marvelling at the puffy perfectly-sour barley spirit, aged without separate oak notes, i.e. cask integration.
F: Whilst others focused on the fruits, my concentration was again on the moorish barley mash and the [bourbon] putty base.
C: Time goes quickly when you're having fun. Delicious stuff. Scores an A-
- Irish Single Malt 24 yo 1991/2015 (46.7%, Whisky-Fässle, barrel) This
shouldn’t be too bad… Colour: straw. Nose: as expected. Green bananas,
fresh butter, avocado juice, mangos, papayas, touches of tobacco, and a
touch of patchouli for good measure. Pretty unbeatable. Mouth:
unbeatable indeed. Many tropical fruits and herbal/sappy substances are
marching like in a parade, especially the usual suspects, mangos ,
bananas, and papayas. Then a drop of cough syrup, as well as a little
rhubarb juice, perhaps. A pristine profile. Finish: medium, but very
fruity. Multi-vitamin fruit juice (you’ll need ‘B’ ones if you’ve got a
bottle of this at home). Fruit skins in the aftertaste. Comments: I may
have written this before, it’s unbeatable (yet we’ll try…) SGP:651 - 89 points.
