Waterford Bannow 1.2

This right here is the second release of single malt Irish whisky from the Waterford Distillery using barley grown grown on the south coast of Co. Wexford by Ed Harpur on his Bannow Island farm. For this particular edition, the whisky was drawn from first-fill American oak casks, virgin oak casks, French oak casks and even some casks used to age vin doux naturel! These expressions were created to explore terroir and its impact on whisky, each one made with barley grown at a single farm. Incredibly fascinating stuff.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Bright barley notes - not nutty, more floral and malty. Hints of sultana and crisp pear shine through.

Palate Honeyed malt and juicy orchard fruits meet on the palate, with a hint of earthy spice.

Finish A subtle hint of salinity on the finish, with lingering pepper and caraway.

Reviews for Waterford Single Farm Origin - Bannow Island 1.2
Young Interesting But Not Worth Its Price
Very Young, interesting but outrageously overpriced, the quality comes nowhere near its price tag and it will be a number of years before i would give Waterford anoter try, maybe then its price will be justified.

Young but interesting
Light apple juice in colour, this whiskey has a very intense nose. Spiced apple mixes with a pastry like bready note, it does smell like home made apple pie.

For such a young whiskey it has a rich mouth feel, very spicy on the tongue. Ginger and a little chilli spice come to the fore, then a deep vanilla whacks in alongside the continuing apple notes. It's literally spiced apple crumble in liquid form.

The finish is fairly short, the spice remains along with the vanilla and a little saltiness, making your mouth salivate and want another sip.

Adding a drop of water tones down the spice and amps up the vanilla.
