Nose

My my. Lovely nose. Of course the tropical sensations in here, like mango and peach. Some citrus, and fruity(pear). A tad malty. With time raspberry candy

Pear. Clementine. Tropical. Spicy, liquorice. Apricot jam. Oaky influence

Quite long and a bit dry finish. More Grapefruit now. Vanilla. Spicy. Hint of tobacco to.

Comments

Just a lovely tropical dream dram.

Quote Whiksynotes.be (Ruben) - December 8, 2016

Emerald Isle 24 yo 1991 (52,6%, Speciality Drinks 2016, cask #8507)

Nose: the unsherried counterpart of cask #8583. It’s all about the fruit salad: bananas, pineapples, passion fruits, lime. Also hints of green oak and mint. Light vanilla marshmallow. Mouth: fruit galore again. Same sherbety tropical fruits, with a bit more grapefruit now. Granadilla. It fades towards green tobacco notes, citrus green tea, fresh oak and menthol. Although it is probably from the same batch, this one doesn’t come accross as peaty, it’s more towards the grassy side. Finish: medium long, with plenty of grapefruit and minty oak.

One of the unsherried and virtually unpeated casks (although there is this leafy and almost medicinal touch), close to the ‘Nose Art’ cask #8533 in that respect. Lovely. I believe it hasn’t been made available yet, but I was told it should appear online soon.

Score: 91/100
