Review: Limavady Single Malt Irish Whiskey

Products You May Like

Limavady is a brand new whiskey model from Northern Eire — 60 miles north of Belfast — the place it makes a single product: A single barrel, single malt whiskey that’s triple distilled from Irish barley, then completed in ex-bourbon and PX sherry casks — that lattermost bit a very uncommon transfer for Eire. Bottles are labeled with barrel and particular person bottle numbers.

Limavady’s heritage dates again to 1750, although it’s secure to say there’s no actual connection between then and what’s being produced after the latest revival. Anyway, we landed a pattern of its inaugural launch for evaluate. Let’s give it a strive.

Wealthy and racy on the nostril, with plenty of deep sherry character — plus an ample, sandalwood-driven earthiness. Aromas of sesame and brown butter give the whiskey a modest sweetness, with notes of hemp rope filling within the cracks. The palate is chewy, with extra sesame and notes of crushed honey grahams, then a extra bready pretzel dough character rising. Blended floral notes give the whiskey a sure perfumy character, which pairs pretty properly with the winey notes up entrance.

The end is moderately dusky, specializing in the whiskey’s well-roasted grains and turning into more and more savory over time. Notes of tea leaf and lemongrass kick in after awhile, making for an odd — however definitely attention-grabbing — bunch of flavors to take care of.

92 proof. Reviewed: Barrel #0040.
