Whisky Reviews for Single Malt Irish Whiskey 1989 RK

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.28 points

  1. Lorion scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Very interesting and quite good. The enthusiasm is missing. Nevertheless, it is solid 85 points!
    • Nose
      Caramel. Really cute! Apple, pear, citrus fruits with something floral, flower meadow. Amazingly, I like it. Malt is there and oak is strong in the nose, barely before. Pickled cherries, pineapple. A whole fruit salad with a dash.
    • Taste
      Sweet and spicy. That's the first impression, then comes the fruit salad rolled up. So juicy sweet and fruity together with neat aromatic oak. There is little to criticize on mouthfeel. It is not sticky sweet, but by the fruits (citrus) an exciting sweet-sour mouthfeel. Interesting.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. Sweet. Becoming spicier.

  2. Truco63 did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    great floral whisky with medium-long finish, complex.
    Blind Tasting in the Whisky Advent Calendar by Marco Bonn would have typed refill Bourbon barrel rather than rum
    • Nose
      floral, light fruity, gentle herbs, light green herbaceous, slightly creamy, completely malty,
      After some time with water also caramel
    • Taste
      some alcohol in the foreground, floral, light fruity, herbs, little sweetness,
      Less alcoholic with a little water, a little sweeter, herbs are stronger, flowering remains
    • Finish
      medium long, flowery, herbs, wood comes through, at the end dry and herbaceous, finish becomes after 2-3 swallowing longer, (After dissolution: at the very end one thinks to taste the rum a bit)
