Let’s go back to the very young Powerscourt distillery in Ireland and its bottlings, made with whiskey chosen by master distiller Noel Sweeney from the casks of distillate produced by Cooley.
In contrast to the 10 year old, here I find myself with a single malt, a malted barley whisky, with a stronger ageing.

Will it have a different soul and taste? Let’s find out…

Tasting notes

Gold in the glass.
Mixed nose of cereals and cut grass, honey, hazelnuts, pineapple, white melon, candle wax. Vanilla extract. Clean and charming.
It is also waxy on the palate, with a triumph of peach and white melon, amoli, marzipan, honey. Citrusy impression together with biscuits, with a herbaceous touch in the background. Very summery.
Medium-long finish of fruit, cereals, honey, wood.

This is a considerable leap forward compared to its younger brother, expressing with greater depth and conviction the freshness and lightness of the whiskey, or at least the master distiller’s idea of it, which we are supposed to find in the original Powerscourt distillate.
