A journey round Islay, visits to Maker's Mark and Penderyn, and the conclusion to our trip down the Rockies
Green Spot Château Léoville Barton
Pot Still - Republic of Ireland - 46.00% 9 Enjoyable whiskey. The wood was a little intrusive on the palate, but the finish was superb.
Jameson 15 Years Old Limited Edition
Pot Still - Ireland - 40.00% 8 Those oily aromatics are quite a shock at first. Shows just how different a true 'Irish' character was 15 years ago, or does Jameson benefit greatly from age?
Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy
Pot Still - Republic of Ireland - 46.00% 8 As quiet, complex and elegant as the man himself.
Midleton Dair Ghaelach
Pot Still - Republic of Ireland - 58.10% 8 It displays both youthful and mature-ish notes. One thing it definitely doesn't lack is oak though!
Midleton Single Cask 1991 10 Years Old
Pot Still - Republic of Ireland - 53.70% 8 Complex, subtle. Recommended quite a bunch this issue.
Midleton Very Rare
Pot Still - Ireland - 40.00% 8 Don't know how Barry Walsh keeps this standard up year on year, the most robust MVR in ages. Bravo!
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% 8 Those oily, cakey aromas still have me hankering for a weekend in Dublin. Tea and cakes at the Shelbourne, then off to the Horseshoe Bar for the first whiskey of the evening.
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.
Redbreast Cask Strength
Pot Still - Republic of Ireland - 57.70% 9 Redbreast is one of the world's great whiskeys. Delicious!
Redbreast Mano a Lámh
Pot Still - Republic of Ireland - 46.00% 8 I thought it was going to be a fairly simple grain whisky and then it sprang to life on the finish.
Tullamore D.E.W. Trilogy
Pot Still - Republic of Ireland - 40.00% 8 Pleasant, soft and subtle. However I think it might have benefited from being bottled at 46% ABV, which would have given the palate a little more intensity.
Pot Still - Republic of Ireland - 46.00% 8 You wonder what's coming next... the Black Spot? The Clear Spot?
