An Fear Grinn, Móinteach, Single Malt, 46%

Having moved house during the pandemic this generous sample from the good people at An Fear Grinn almost went missing.

Móinteach time! c/othewhiskeynut

Luckily the new owners of my old abode kindly informed me of the package & it duly graced my happy hands.

What a delight it proved to be!

Móinteach – roughly translates as peaty – exhibited those lovely rich smokey aromas I adore.

Clean & clear – yet not overpowering.

The palate was milder & sweeter than nosing suggested.

Móinteach came alive on the finish for me.

A gorgeous drying out, tingling sensation – reminding me of the warm glow from the fading embers of a hearty fire wrapping me in it’s comforting embrace.

You’re home from work & a little package has arrived.

Against The Grain Sample c/othewhiskeynut

Whiskey.

But not any whiskey.

Peated Irish Whiskey!

What else are you gonna do but crack it open!

Sample poured! c/othewhiskeynut

Gorgeously rich peat fire smoke permeates room.

An initial sweetness gradually transforms into the warm embrace of a well stacked turf hearth glowing brightly.

A touch of prickly spice dances merrily away on the long finish.

Sheer delight!
