The Dubliner Irish Whiskey
Released by Dublin Liberties Distillery and sporting a brand new look, this blended 3 year old Irish whiskey is matured exclusively in Bourbon casks. Bottled at 40% ABV and retailing at €30.
Omar Fitzell Notes
Spirity and young. Fresh cut grass, barley and orchard fruits.
Light but not in any way as spirity as the nose suggests. Flashes of some pleasant sweet, fruity notes with more barley appearing mid palate.
Short. Touch of sweetness remains with a slight pepper spice but overall, nothing too complex.
While lacking some balance, overall, it is not the worst whiskey on the market. An easy drinker that would most likely appeal to those newer to neat whiskey drinking.
Al Higgins notes
Delicate, grainy and lightly perfumed with citrus, a touch of bubble-gum, violets, honeydew melon and green apples.
Soft, juicy and light. Very delicate flavours of citrus, melon, green apples and mint.
Some dusty American oak and spice. Rather short but pleasant enough
A decent blend that works well given the short maturation. Certainly more for mixing or serving over ice.
