Kentucky, Louisville, Benromach
Michael Collins Blend
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 8 Visually, a very attractive whisky – rich amber and gloriously viscous. If my suspicions are correct, an earlier expression of this whisky reminded me of a Peshwari Nan. Must be shared and discussed...
Blended - Ireland - 43.00% 8 Long one of my great favourites. In composition, it is the the simplest of blends, yet it demonstrates how malt can someimes be enhanced by a leavening of grain.
Powers John's Lane
Pot Still - Republic of Ireland - 46.00% 8 This is astoundingly complex for a 12yo. An instant classic.
Redbreast 12 Years Old
Pot Still - Ireland - 40.00% 9 This is what real pure pot still whiskey is all about, a glorious contradiction of soft fruit and firm grain, oily seeds and sweet wood. World beating stuff.
Greenore 18 Years Old
Single Grain - Republic of Ireland - 46.00% 8 A very stylish grain which is showing grip and character rather than just getting sweeter and flabbier with age.
Adelphi Shannon Grain 1991, 9 Years Old, Cask 10839
Single Grain - Ireland - 67.30% 6 For a grain whiskey, it has plenty of flavours, but they do not hang together very well.
Cadenhead's Cooley, World Whiskies 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Ireland - 60.00% 8 This is some bottling; great distillate matured to perfection in excellent casks. One for the Islay bore in your life.
Connemara Cask Strength
Single Malt - Ireland - 60.00% 8 I just love this un-chill filtered version; it's fat, it's loud and it's fun. In this price bracket, there are very few Scottish single malts that can match it.
