Popping into Tesco for a spot of groceries – I couldn’t help noticing the Drumshanbo Single Pot Still on the shelves.
Handily I’d a few vouchers to use – so it made my basket – along with the usual items.
Elegantly presented in an opulent box with a fabulously designed chunky bottle inside – this is the slightly less powerful – 43% – version of the 46% Inaugural release I so enjoyed previously.
Lovely rich honeyed vanilla nose.
A silky sweet oily mouthfeel with malt biscuity overtones.
A gorgeously peppery single pot still spice on the finish.
Having been spoilt by the intensity & ‘joie de vivre’ of Inaugural – this well balanced, easily accessible & complex Single Pot Still felt just a little less luxurious.
But then it’s not everyday you can pick up a Lovely Leitrim Whiskey doing the groceries!
