I stumbled on a little bit of whiskey joy recently.
After an early evening walk in the sunny autumnal weather Mrs Whiskey suggested a meal in the local bar – only to find it fully booked.
So another establishment was found.
An establishment that happened to have a bottle of Dingle Whiskey on the shelf.
It would be rude not to have a glass!
Spirity & powerful on the nose – yet containing some rich notes of dark fruits.
Very fresh on the taste – this is a young malt – an explosion of flavours filled the palate.
The dark fruity notes & vanilla from the bourbon cask maturation gently faded away with a soft prickly tingling.
I thought it came over a lot stronger than it’s 46.5% strength – and in the dimly lit bar area it wasn’t until I enlarged the photo that I discovered it was a Batch 2 Single Malt.
I think I’ll be returning to this establishment for further refreshments!
