What they say:
Irish #1 24yo TBWC Bottling Note
We’d like to shower you with sugar lumps, but you’ll have to make do with this exquisite Irish single malt – the first Irish whiskey bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company and a 24 year old no less! It’s really very lovely, so go on and try it. Go on. Go on. Go on. Go on. Go on…
Batch 1 is a release of 264 bottles.
Nose: Fragrant and fruity with notes of kiwi, peach, gooseberry, grapefruit and pot pourri.
Palate: More stone fruit and grapefruit with gorgeous, subtle fizzy oak notes you’d usually associate with even older malts.
Finish: Fragrant and fruity once again, real winning stuff, with more subtle touches of oak and even a suggestion of cocoa.
What I say:
A sample from a TBWC tweet tasting hosted by Steve at the Whisky Wire, unfortunately I was also to be in Dublin that day/night to prepare for the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations with a popular brand of Irish Whiskey *ahem* and was unable to participate. A little later than I expected I finally got round to sampling some of these and also take a look back at the responses and reactions to these during the tasting. This one drew a lot of praise and rightfully so!
Full gold (9/20), medium tears leave medium resolving to fine legs
Sweet and citric lemon juice, candied peel, rich, lemon barley sugars, malty, biscuit, vanilla cream, light toffee, gooseberry syrup, floral and light
Sweet lemon, limoncello, syrupy in texture, lemon barley sugars, grapefruits, gooseberry fool dessert, fragrant and floral, oak wood with a touch of chilli spice & heat
Long, syrupy, fruity with gooseberry, barley and some spice/heat
A delicious single malt Irish whiskey expression with a distinct grapefruit and gooseberry fruit characteristic and syrupy and mouth coating texture which displays these to the utmost on the palate. Definitely one I could enjoy drinking time and time again!
Don’t take my word for it:
