Irish Whiskey - Pot Still

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

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.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

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!

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Midleton Single Cask 1991 10 Years Old
Pot Still - Republic of Ireland - 53.70%
8 Complex, subtle. Recommended quite a bunch this issue.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

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.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

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.

Yellow Spot
Pot Still - Republic of Ireland - 46.00%
8 You wonder what's coming next... the Black Spot? The Clear Spot?
