Whisky Reviews for Barr an Uisce 10-year-old
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.35 points
- At first impression, it is significantly sweeter and softer than its sister blend in the nose, also less clearly fragrant, these tones resonate more in the background. There are marshmallows, and again the apple notes, but here on a fresh crepe with sugar and a good pinch of spicy cinnamon, or in a warm apple strudel with cinnamon and raisins. Gradually a strong oak note is added, some Ritter Sport milk chocolate, honey and strong flowers, which I cannot quite classify. The palate is initially delighted with a spicy sweetness, cinnamon and ginger are at the forefront, but quickly afterwards a harsh and intensely alcoholic note is followed by a woody bitterness, which clings to the palate in the medium-long finish and retains a licorice-like finish only slowly getting a little leathery - you could have “cheered” on me in blind tasting as barrel strength.
Vanilla, slightly spicy.
Stingy, light vanilla, the herbs also come back. Has it typically Irish: not too round, but pleasant, partly because of the sweetness.
Medium, sweet bourbon finish
- A very nice Irishman again, has a very own, beautiful combination of almost all divisions except sherry.
Beautiful floral-grassy notes, fine notes of ginger in between, moss, birch, vanilla, some sage, white grapes, and white peach, like a great Lowlander or even a little Japanese-looking, green apple, pear
Here, the pear at first clearly, some mango, passion fruit, beautiful honey full of vanilla and some herbs such as rosemary and sage, but the woody-mossy is still to find again and again, the mixture of herbs and flowers, while the tropical fruits and pear are a crazy but very tasty mix
More pear again with ginger, nutmeg, some bitter middle aged oak, dry herbs, dry-fruity-bitter, medium-long
- the first impression on the Interwhisky was better, I'm probably not a friend of the Irish whisky
first, nothing opens, later hay and green, then comes earth
Round on the palate, vanilla, ham, malt
medium long, grass, somehow unpleasant
- An expressive Irish single malt, rich and sweet. Deliciously fruity
on the nose and palate. Well balanced with vanilla, toffee, floral notes
and a lovely warming spiciness. More personality than the Wicklow Rare
blend. Nicely complex and highly drinkable. No water needed.
I thank Irish Whiskys for the sample!
Fresh and fruity on the nose with lemons, citric fruits and pears.
Creamy vanilla, slightly floral and grassy notes linger with subtle
ginger and hints of oak in the back.
The malt starts with a delicious fruity sweetness on the palate. Tangy
lemonade, nicely mixed with green apples and citric fruits. This is
complemented by a warming spiciness of caramelised ginger oak and white
pepper. Vanilla, creamy honey and slightly herbal/grassy notes
intermingle with hints of cloves towards the finish.
The finish is medium long, with creamy honey and toffee. Slightly warm
and dry with oak and a touch of bitter lemon peel on the tail.
WATER: Water even enhances the citric fruitiness on the nose with ginger
and oak coming to the fore. Floral and slightly grassy notes emerge.
Very fruity on the palate. Orchard fruits and vanilla, immediately
followed by an increased spiciness of black pepper, steamed ginger and
oak. The finish is quite short with creamy honey, ginger and dry oak.
- A classic Irish single malt. If you like the grassy touch, it has its qualities.
In the nose immediately makes a strong grassy, strawy note wide. That should be a barrel of Cooley. The nose takes a long time to get used to this note. Slowly then comes a pear note and a little vanilla.
Grass is also found on the tongue. But then comes a malty momentum afterwards, mixed with vanilla pods and cloves. Herbs.
The finish is rather short with tart oak notes.
