Dunville's Very Rare #192

A very special offering from Northern Ireland's Echlinville distillery, released as part of its recently revived Dunville's Very Rare range. For this release, mature Irish single malt whiskey was treated to a finish in eight exceedingly rare casks from Guyana's long-lost Port Mourant Estate. The casks previously held a mighty 41-year-old demerara rum produced in the legendary Port Mourant double wooden pot still and would have been lined with rich, dark molasses treacle before their original fill. That rich, treacly character has stood the test of time and in turn imparted its intensity to this spectacular cask-strength whiskey. An extraordinary bonus here is that, alongside the full-sized bottle of whiskey, you receive a 20ml sample of the original 41-year-old rum that was disgorged from the Port Mourant casks, providing a unique opportunity to try the two spirits side by side.

Tasting Note by The Producer

Nose That subtle layering of sweet molasses over the magnificently clean barley leads into rich, oily, viscous aromas, a richness of red toffee apples, pear drops giving way to baked pear, sweet vanilla crème anglaise, and warm apple strudel. That same warmth that speaks to the cask strength of this whiskey, but with strength rather than burn.

Palate Perfect texture, sweet oak layered with dark treacle molasses, thick dark muscovado sugar with sweet wood vanilla. Stewed fruits, candied orange, verging on marmalade, with hints of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and luxurious rum ice cream. Then comes the merest suggestion of smoke from the barrel char, and of old sun dried leather that adds even more richness, depth and complexity to the whiskey. Finally those rum casks take over, with sticky toffee pudding, well done crème brulée, blue mountain latte, banana bread and rum ice cream carrying through to the finish. This is a whiskey that responds to warmth and develops in the glass.

Finish Rich, oily and viscous, those sugars combine with the malts natural oils to coat the mouth quite sublimely with pure molasses, treacle and buttery barley. Then there’s cream soda , candied orange, more wonderful banana bread and dark rum, and all the way through you have that perfect, breath-taking intertwingling of the molasses, the malt and that sweet oak, that reminds you in its last long lingering moments of the 18 years this whiskey has been waiting for this reveal, and so defines this magnificent whiskey.
