Dunville's Very Rare 10yo Bottling Note

From the recently revived Dunville's Very Rare range of Irish whiskey, presented by the Echlinville distillery in Northern Ireland, comes a 10 year old single malt Irish whiskey which has been finished in Pedro Ximénez casks. A very intriguing release, with plenty of orchard fruit, custard and old fashioned sweetie notes. It was recently crowned Best Irish Single Malt Under 12 Years at the 2015 World Whiskies Awards.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Fresh green apples, tropical chews and coconut lead, with dried grass and a touch of crème brûlée.

Palate: Stewed red fruits, candied orange and a crackle of black pepper initially, before a little mocha, custard and spice rise.

Finish: Juicy and pleasant on the finish with some lingering wood.

Dunville's Very Rare 10 Year Old Irish Whiskey Reviews

Meh

Very unusual whisky. Sweet yes, but in a lemon Sherbet kind of way. Orchard fruits in the background with a relatively short finish. I’m not a massive fan of this. Good to have in the cabinet for friends who like light easy going whiskies but not for me. To be honest I’m still to find an Irish whisky that blows me away. The search continues...

Great sweet whiskey. Very unique

Excellent floral whiskey. Great herbal smell on the nose. Has a Gin like scent to it. Very smooth and sweet on the taste. Excellent expression

Beautiful sipping whiskey.

Delicious Irish Malt!
Being a huge fan of Bushmills 12yr Reserve, and Midleton, I love this whiskey. Spirited front, with hints of dried fruit/raisins (slight), honey/vanilla/carmel, dry grains, it’s very balanced and very drinkable neat.

NOT 'Not very rare'

Nose of brown sugar, apple peel, flavours of raisins and a hit of citrus on the finish. If adding a drop of water is your thing I would recommend not doing so on this occasion as the slightly higher abv serves to restrain the fruity sweetness of the whiskey. I like that the Irish new kids on the block like Echlinville and Teeling refrain from chill-filtering, though I think they should take a leaf out of Teeling's book and not add caramel colouring to this, (someone correct me if I'm wrong on that account).

P.S. To the review titled 'not very rare'. Regardless of whether VR on the front refers to Victoria Regina, the company itself states it is both a throwback to the reference to Victoria's reign on the original bottle and also to it's 'very rare' status, and if you would care to turn your bottle over, you'll see the words 'very rare whiskey' in bold on the back label... So NOT 'Not very rare'!

Great Irish Whiskey

It arrived in Canada and I think I was probably the first one to buy a bottle! I got a couple for my wedding as my last name is Dunville. Although I bought it for that reason, it is indeed a VERY good Irish Whiskey! I wouldn't hesitate.

Try it. You'll like it.

I'm a bourbon guy, but I picked up a bottle on my way through Belfast. For the money, I don't see how you can go wrong. Deliciously light, sweet, and drinkable. I only wish I had bought more!

Not very rare

Its not very rare the VR actually represents Queen victoria who reigned during the time of the distillation of this bottle VR = victoria regina

One of the top 3 Irish in the £30-£50 bracket.

I agree that in the £30 - £50 price range this & Redbreast 12 are in the top 3 Irish allong with Teeling Single Malt. The only Irish I've tried as good is Bushmills 16 but thats going into the Ultra Premium Bracket & the above 3 are better bang for your buck.

Superb

Has won multiple awards and can see why...fantastic flavours with a bit of a spicy overtone, giving way to a sweeter custard finish. Along with Redbreast 12 probably the best Irish whiskey's available for under £50 (or £100 for that matter!)

Really Impressive

Really impressive. Although I live in Ireland I usually drink speyside malts my current favourite being Aberlour A' Bunadh (cask strength). My daughter bought me a bottle of Dunville VX for Christmas and I really liked it. I have tried most of the Irish single malts and I never thought they had any depth or complexity. This is different and is without doubt the best Irish single malt I have tried. Well done Echlinville distillery.

Really good 10 year old

It's amazing how are taste buds differ. The previous reviewer dumped his bottle which seems like madness, I really enjoyed it, bought another and look forward to what The Echlinville distillery have to offer in the future as there stock matures.

Do not buy.

Seems like they missed the hearts on my batch- tasted of jet fuel and fusel alcohols. Dumped the whole bottle

28th February 2017

Outstanding!!!

Light, sweet with a lot of complexity. Maybe the best Irish Whiskey I've ever had!

17th December 2016

Stunning dram

Fantastic whiskey for the cost.

18th November 2016

Amazing

I find it criminal that this isn't available in the States as it is quite possibly the best Irish out there, especially given the price. I am usually skeptical of award winning whiskey as they seldom match the hype but this was an exception and good God was it amazing. Support them and help them grow. Would love to see more emerge from this distillery.

2nd May 2016

Impressive

Really good whiskey form this new distillery, not much about them online but they have set the benchmark high. Looking forward to the future
