Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:


Irish Single Malt Whisky 16 yo 1999/2015 (57.3%, Chapter 7, rum cask, cask #5409) Four stars and a half This one was aged in a rum cask, not just finished. And I’ll say it again, I love these labels that are not overdone. This is whisky, it’s not the Follies Bergères or the Tropicana, and Mucha is dead and buried! Colour: pale gold. Nose: something must have happened in 2000 in Ireland. Indeed, this is rather more refined, elegant, and subtle than all the others. Superb notes of sunflower oil, light honeys, agave and cane syrups, tangerines, mangos, dandelions, pollen… The others were lovely, this is superb. With water:  more of the lovely same. The rum is hard to detect – maybe the cane syrup? Mouth (neat): yess, grapefruits to put it straight, then papayas, pineapples, mangos, passion fruits… Then a touch of Pinot Gris… It’s well in the style of the 1988-1992s. With water: even more so, even if a funny spicy oak kicks in. Cumin, perhaps, cloves, cardamom, ‘greener things’… Finish: medium, and definitely grassier, spicier, and greener. Reminds me of that trendy grass juice we used to drink in Germany in the 1980s… Oh forget. The aftertaste is sweeter again, though. White pineapples? Comments: not totally 90-material in my book – that’s rather 1988-1992 indeed – but we’re close. SGP:651 - 88 points.
