Irish single malt 27yo 1990 - Whisky Agency - Whisky ExchangeIrish single malt 27 yo 1990
(51,3%, The Whisky Agency & The Whisky Exchange 2017, bourbon barrel, 150 btl.)

Nose: slightly warmer than 1989, with a bit more vanilla cake and marshmallow aromas. Honey, apricots, dried pineapple rings and mango slices. Some zingy lime zest, light spices and polished oak. Floral notes as well as a chalky edge.

Mouth: lovely stuff. Full of the typical tropical notes (mango, papaya, pineapple syrup, passion fruits…) with a rummy twist and honey. Hints of litchi as well. Also this slightly mineral backbone and some spices like cinnamon, pepper and aniseed.

Finish: long, with mango sweetness and lingering spices.

One of the warmer casks, with spices and minerals bringing more complexity to the luscious tropical fruitiness. Lovely Irish whiskey. Around € 300 and still available.

Score: 92/100
