Whisky Reviews for Ireland 1990 MBa

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.19 points

  1. EinSpatzUnterVielen scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Needs a lot of time in the glass. Very fruity start as in a 73er Speysider, but missing the complexity of the Scotsman. Delicious!
    • Nose
      Bright tropical fruits, pineapple, papaya, mango, banana, even pear, grass, mint, honey, coconut, lemon verbena, flower meadow, daisy, chamomile, mint, glue - urgently needs a lot of time in the glass until it clears and opens
    • Taste
      Sparkling onset, sweet and creamy, oily; instant fruit explosion - pineapple, passion fruit, lemon, grapefruit, melon, green tea, lemon balm, flower meadow; mineral, white pepper, cinnamon, cardamom, dark chocolate, (coconut) nutty, then mint, olive oil
    • Finish
      medium length, pineapple, cinnamon and pepper, coconut, at the end the mint

  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Enthusiasm 4/5
    Whisky n ° 1601
    • Nose
      Fresh, with vegetal notes (hay) that tend to dominate exotic fruits.
    • Taste
      Smooth attack, touch super delicate, creamy. A tart, spicy chouia. White peach.
    • Finish
      With exotic fruits. Respectable length.

    A very nice one - lots of tropical fruits and flowers, some spicy notes too, cinnamon, ginger, and honey and spearmint

  5. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A fabulous nose, unfortunately the mouth is not up to par and causes a legitimate disappointment. The whole is well done but suffers from the comparison with some "Irish" recently released.
    • Nose
      Superb nose on exotic fruits and sugar syrup. There is a little sweet side very pleasant. At the fruit level we find mainly, mango, pineapple and apricot. A clearly greedy nose with a vegetable mist and some woody aromas.
    • Taste
      The attack is light even if it rises quickly and crescendo. There is exoticism and pear. We find this little sweet side that there was on the nose but much more discreet. The whole is rather dry in mouth with spices and a "citric" end. It's less greedy than the nose.
    • Finish
      Beautiful length on the exotic fruits first then arrive the woody, the spices and a very slight bitterness. A hint of vanilla strolls on the end.

  6. ManoCornuta scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Serge gave it 91 points ! Ireland 27 yo 1990/2017 (48%, Maltbarn, The Malt Clan, bourbon, 206 bottles) Five stars In theory, this should be pretty unbeatable… Colour: straw. Nose: the 2003, minus the sour/dry sherry, plus a much better polishing. Pistachio cream, mango jam, aloe, perhaps a little bacon (really), some cake straight from the bakery (raisin cake?) and, above everything, some very precious blue-green tea. Very subtle and delicate, less extravagantly fruity than other casks of this make. After ten minutes, there, passion fruits, pink grapefruits, and wet chalk. Mouth: only one major flaw, I was expecting this, while I do like surprises. Otherwise, we have passion fruits, mangos, a wee touch of salt, a feeling of clay, melissa water… And all that. Finish: medium, pure, and extremely fresh. A wee touch of litchi and pineapple in the aftertaste. Comments: luminous and refreshing. Yeah, most sadly, as expected – but we shan’t complain, shall we? SGP:651 - 91 points.

    Fruity nose slightly fruity on pineapple and kiwi.
    The attack is hyper fruity banana pineapple with then a nice vegetable on a background of spice type cinnamon.
    Then arrived a wave of fruity type cognac almost watery very fresh with a little lemon.
    The finish is exotic and spicy woody with a big return of exotic fruits that explode in the mouth and vibrate the taste buds into the upper palate.
    The final at first breathlessness then come back frankly on the fruit still pineapple and papaya then a mineral note of hot stone come after the extinction of the power of the fruits.
    Rest in the mouth the fruits as if they had been cooked to perfection.
    Advertising aeration and time
    Rather complex and lively
