Knappogue Castle 1995 Bottling Note

Best Irish whiskey I have ever tasted. Have one bottle left, waiting for special occasion to open.

Pear drops, light and delicious

Wow! What great bouquet. Apple pie with a nice hint of clove and sherbet lemons. This is not the richest offering from KC (I have four expressions in all) but the lightness and openness of the palate is unusually refreshing for a malt whisky. There is abundant vanilla and some sweetness but the spice keeps it from cloying. Sadly no longer available since the move to age statement whiskeys at KC, I will have to eke it out slowly.

A surprise and one that's well worth investing in

complex, nutty and well-balanced

My appraisal of this whiskey is that it is pleasantly sweet and smooth with nutty (especially coconut, but also some walnut), caramel, brown sugar and malty taste. On the finish I detect mostly raisins and more of the previous. It's primarily nutty and secondarily fruity, and the various flavors really go together well. This is a complex whiskey that has really aged well. I love it!

Red Berries Maelström

A truly unique nose of red berries (small forest strawberries, raspberries, ...) and a delicious mildly bitter aftertaste. Unique and not to be missed.
