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.
Official tasting notes:
- 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.
- Overall: Lovely.
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!
My tasting notes:
- Appearance: Full gold (9/20), medium tears leave medium resolving to fine legs
- Nose: Sweet and citric lemon juice, candied peel, rich, lemon barley sugars, malty, biscuit, vanilla cream, light toffee, gooseberry syrup, floral and light
- Taste: 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
- Finish: 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!
