Irish Whiskey Magazine - Tastings - Dingle Pot Still Batch 1

Dingle Pot Still Batch 1

The first Single Pot Still release outside of Irish Distillers for many years, this 50% malted, 50% unmalted triple distilled Pot Still is matured exclusively in Pedro Ximenez casks. Bottled at 46.5% ABV. RRP €90.

Greg Dillon Notes

Nose:

Spicy, herbaceous; thyme, rosemary and pine needles immediately spring to mind, those herbal notes give
an aromatic quality that teases and intrigues the nose in equal measures, with a slight caramel note given time in the glass.
 

Palate:

Again, packed with herbal notes akin to the nose, bit
more fiery on the palate with a raft of spices singing through too; cayenne pepper, white pepper and a sweet, juicy note reminiscent of toffee apples.
 

Finish:

Quite a long, spicy finish that gradually ebbs away leaving a slight menthol note on the back palate.

 

Overall:

A very interesting take on Single Pot Still Irish whiskey, more herbal than I would have expected, but a great, well-balanced example of what Single Pot Still can produce. Superb.

 

Michael Foggarty Notes

Nose:

Big pronounced fruit, lashings of PX sherry. I could be in a tapas bar in southern Spain.
 

Palate:

Spicy. Dried stone fruits give way to some creamy vanilla and brandy butter. For one so young it should be a school with the big kids.
 

Finish:

The fruits linger on, a very lasting finish
 

Overall:

The number of distilleries in Ireland bottling pot still has
doubled and going by this stunning whiskey let’s hope Dingle and other distilleries around the country start releasing more.
