Does well across the board! Nice complex nose, good mouthfeel with quite a bit of fruits, including overripe pears, grapes, lychee, and mangosteen, but also quite a bit of vanilla. Not a terribly impressive finish, but good enough to score a bit higher than many Irish that are in the 89-90 range.

Nose

Pronounced and highly expressive delivering an abundance of fruits. Apples, pears, peaches and melons provide fresh notes, whilst candied lemon and orange peels and pineapples supply a real vibrant sweetness. The fruits are underscored by distinct herbal and vegetal notes – a hint of green pepper gives a real feel of greenhouses growing both fruits and vegetables at the same time. There’s a slightly mineral steely note that cuts through both fruits and sweetness offering a pleasant sharpness.

Taste

Saddle up and prepare to get all of your 5 A Day in liquid form! Rich, mouth-coating and sweeter than the nose suggests, straight from the off we’re in fruit explosion territory again. A similar profile to the nose, but with some subtle differences – the fruits are sweeter, favouring more stone and tropical flavours – and they’re all wrapped up in some zingy sherbet. There’s a wonderful balance delivered from more bitter fruits such as grapefruits and limes – this prevents the overt sweetness from becoming cloying.

Finish

Medium-long with some very agreeable wood influence coming to the fore including both pepper and cinnamon, and a slight tang of salinity to wrap things up.

Comments

Dynamic, balanced and packed full of delicious fruity flavours. This bottling has more than enough complexity to reward those of you of an analytical persuasion. Alas, this, Boutique-y Whisky bottling sold out very quickly – but if you get any opportunity to obtain one at a fair price, or try a sample, don’t even think about hesitating. My favourite release of 2017 so far.

Irish Single Malt 24 Years (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * Ireland

This was my personal favourite among the new releases from That Boutique-y Whisky Company. Irish single malt 24 Year Old: expectations are high.

 

 

Irish single malt 24 Years - That Boutique-y Whisky CoIrish single malt 24 yo (46,8%, That Boutique-y Whisky Company 2016, Batch #1, 50 cl, 264 btl.)

Nose: vibrant, with green mango and pineapple, lime, kiwi, fresh pink grapefruit. Just a little vanilla and barley sugar. A few floral notes too (potpourri). Citrus peel. If this were a beer, my guess would be Citra hop. Very sherbety, a lot like the 1991 single casks we’ve had. Mouth: maracuya sherbet, pink grapefruit, a lot of papaya and kiwi. One of these multivitamin Irish malts. A bit of cinnamon and very light baking spice towards the end. Finish: medium long, still very fruity with subtle oaky touches.

No further explanations needed, we’ve had plenty of similar Irish fruit bombs lately, all great. Moreover this one was particularly well priced. Sold out from Master of Malt but perhaps still available from their partners for around € 145 (for 50cl).

Score: 91/100

The label references Father Ted’s ‘A Song for Europe’ episode - Google: 'My lovely horse sax solo'. I was unaware the song had such a cult following - there are live band covers.



N: You'd never know it was 24yo first off, initially giving away it’s fruity distillate with plenty of copper.


T: Very tasty Irish with a touch of sherry? - but probably more/all bourbon in the main.


F: The age of this malt shows much later on, rather a lot in the form of terrific tannins that meld with the grain. Finishes on a sweet putty chew and deep [sherried, again?]-mash tannins. 


C: It's a single malt whiskey which narrows the unknown distillery down to either Cooley or Midleton if i’ve understood things correctly WP.

Nose

Très beaux fruits exotiques avec du malt. Délicat et vanillé. Le toffee rejoint la fête et devient prépondérant. Parfumé.

Taste

Bouche toute en cohérence avec le nez, texture moelleuse. 
La première gorgée manque un peu de kick, à cause de la réduction. Ce bémol disparaît dès la deuxième gorgée ! 

Finish

Longue, sur les fruits exotiques et les épices douces qui pétillent

Comments

Un très bon Irish comme je les aime qui ne souffre que d'une réduction un peu marquée parfois - et encore.
