My first introduction to Midleton Very Rare and very enjoyable it is. Combining elements of grain whiskey and pot still from Midleton distillery. The result is light and refreshing, fruity ditillate-led expression. 87/100
Writers Tears Cask Strength 2018 Edition whisky review: An interesting foray into cask strength Irish Whisky. Approachable at presentation strength and just that little bit more flavourful and intense on the palate. Thankfully everything is soft and well presented here making this very drinkable and enjoyable. 85/100
J. J. Corry The Gael whisky review: Much more accomplished/complete and very enjoyable. This is the target flavour profile The Chapel Gate Whiskey are aiming for then I expect a highly drinkable series of whiskeys will follow. 83/100
Jameson 18 Years Old Bow Street Cask Strength whiskey review: Spiced from the unmalted barley and rich and complex from both spirit and maturation, this is slightly removed from the smoothness of your usual Jameson blend and strikes me as something really quite memorable.
A great introductory whiskey to the Tullamore range or ‘Blended’ Irish whiskey category. All very pleasant, perhaps a hint more wood smoke and spice than I remember on previous tastings? 83/100
Sweet fruity and plenty of toffee, reasonable depth and body. Very drinkable and hard to find flaw with – not a bad introduction to Irish whiskey. 83/100
