Whisky reviews for Irish Single Malt XO W-F

3 users have left 3 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 88.55 points.

  1. Larry411 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Caramel, perfume, stewed apples and pears with cinnamon, and a hint of chocolate.

  2. Jackson05 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Good, but not great Irish. Very expensive at $315 cdn. Definitely on the weaker end of most Irish releases of late. Supposedly a blend of “some” of the gorgeous 1989~ vintages plus younger stuff around 14~ years. Comes across more the latter.

  3. thijs100 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Good, but not exactly exciting. I like often my whiskies delicate, balanced and subtle, but this might be a tad too delicate and subtle.
    • Nose
      Very delicate and subtle. Fruity and sweet. Cotton candy, candied bananas, and some pineapple. Sugar-y too, but also some freshly cut grass.
    • Taste
      There's this sweet fruitiness, similar to what I already described above. But the grassiness is more eminent on the palate, also a hint of menthol and white pepper.
    • Finish
      Grassy, short to medium.
