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 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 24 Years Old Vintage Reserve Collection whisky review: Superb, musty and woody on the nose the Sauternes finish has worked wonders here with a lovely woody and herbal honey with touches of grape, orange and pineapple, delicious. 87/100
Teeling Brabazon Bottling Series 1 whisky review: Great balanced sherry dram, not overtly sherried – I’m not sure I’d call this a monster?
Fercullen 14 Years Old Single Malt Whisky Review: A lovely easy drinker, there is a nice tropicality about the fruits in this whisky but still some zest that keeps it refreshing. 84/100
Tullamore D.E.W. 18 Years Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey Review: A deliciously dark and complex whiskey, full of coffee, cocoa and oak wood notes. 89/100
Tullamore D.E.W. 14 Years Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey Review: Sweeter, fruitier and creamier than before but still delicious. 85/100
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! 89/100

Really quite special and an education to my Irish whiskey palate. This has all the subtleties of scotch single malt and has been married masterfully using the best qualities of each of the cask maturations involved. 86/100.
