Waterford Bannow Island 1.2

Waterford_Bannow_Island_1_2

Salty and oily fish with a dash of lemon juice – not flavours I’m really looking for in a whisky. Whilst Terroir-driven whiskey may be a fantastical experiment/marketing hack to sell Waterford they seriously need to improve their output to tempt me into drinking it again. 66/100

Lambay Single Malt

Lambay Single Malt Whisky Review: A lovely dram, full of ‘green’ fruits, kiwi, banana and coconut, there are hints of tannic oak wood and woody sugars that along with some of these fruits may have developed from the Cognac cask finish? 83/100

Teeling Single Grain

Teeling Single Grain whisky review: Initially a little spirity on the nose but grat palate and flavour, with time/breathing mellows into a rich and sweet lemon curd, some tannin and spice but I didn’t place the wine cask – I mistook it for the grainy spice from unmalted barley or rye cereals. 80/100
