- Very nice, juicy, dense Irishman; This release uses alcohols from Cooley, a non-Irish double distillation practice. Ten years in bourbon barrels and six months in sherry cask were enough to create a complete malt.
Open, friendly; first duchess and apple charlotte; later oak and sherry tones appear; freshness of lemon; there is a hint of honey and a little spice.
Sufficiently dense, deep; waxy viscosity; dried apricots and prunes are intertwined with nut-vanilla and spicy tones; grapefruit and red orange complete the picture.
A bit short, I would like a little longer; the theme of dried fruits and, oak, spices continues; vanilla and caramel tones appear; but everything goes away quickly.
- Just 31 casks of the whiskey have been bottled.
- Sweet, light, fruits, old leather, dried fruits, dates, allspices, red apples notes on nose. The palate is sweet, dry, light and slightly spicy with notes of sweet fruits, raisin, grapefruit and spices. The finish is middle, sweet and spicy with notes of dried fruits, grapefruit, apples and raisin. It’s a light, sweet and easy drinkable whiskey.
N: This third Dubliner [with the Liberties name badge], comes with sweeter orchard fruits and a clean sweet pungent pong. Develops with a small handful of salt ’n’ vinegar crisps.
T: Plunges right in with its rich distillate & fully integrated oak.
F: Rounded, controlled heat with a waxy chew.
C: Well delivered Irish malt and easily my favourite of the three.
