Omar Fitzell Notes
Signature Dingle malty cereal nose. Mango and strawberry along with orange zest are standing out with a subtle chilli like note and some linseed oil.
A very light mouthfeel is overshadowed by a fruity explosion. Lemon and lime, red apples and stone fruit.
Short to medium finish that has a white pepper spice.
Dingle has gone from strength to strength over the years. I have always enjoyed their own spirit and this is no different. A fruity, malty whiskey that will be great on a cold winter night.
Al Higgins notes
Nicely complex and warming. Aromas of baked fruits, apples with raisins, Christmas pudding, summer pudding, hot orange, grilled pineapple and warm spices.
Toasted spices, charred oak, red fruits, apple strudel, rum and raisin, Danish pastries fresh from the oven and custard creams.
Spicy, oaky and warm with some gentle tannins.
Youthful and a little hot but with some deliciously warming flavours.
