Irish Single Malt 16 yo (1999), Chapter 7, 57,1 %

Review #433
This single cask is a part of the series “A Whisky Anthology”. It is a Rum cask and only 221 bottles were made. The sweetness is the first thing that hits your nose. After the initial sweetness some darker notes appear. Dates and vanilla from the cask in the end.

More oak influence in the taste. The colour is pale but the taste is dark. Raisins, dried apricots, burned brown sugar and honey. The sweetness carries out in the finish but is still accompanied with some dried fruits. Compared to the taste, it is now the other way around with the sugary notes being dominant.

This is definitely one of the better Rom cask matured whiskies I have tried. The finish is just so long and dessert like! It doesn’t reminds me very much of an Irish Whiskey though. I will rate this 89/100 (22/22/23/22).
