Nose: Initial burst of sweet vanilla leads to crisp orchard fruits, apples and pears. Then lemon curd, leading on to candied Lemon peel over notes of clean malt.

 

Palate: Soft and creamy mouthfeel, buttery, with ripened citrus and baked biscuit, coming together in a burst of fresh lemon meringue, followed by a wisp of char and white pepper.

 

Finish: Slight hints of dry smoke linger and intertwine with the juicier fruit notes, carrying through to a finish of sweet spice.

 

Serve: Dunville’s 1808 tastes great the traditional way – neat or in the company of a pint. But it’s equally good in a classic cocktail or served long with ginger ale and a wedge of lime.

Nose: Very gentle, floral, sweet and juicy. Orchard fruits intertwined with nutty caramel,

nougat and powerful butterscotch overtones.

 

Palate: The initial sweetness from the malt gives way to light citrus fruits, orange, lemon, green apples, pepper and clove. The wood spice and lovely oak tannins firm up this whiskey before the oloroso sherry casks take the final curtain.

 

Finish: Orchard fruits and caramels give way as subtle notes of walnut, nougat, vanilla and dried fruits come through in the soft lingering finish.

Nose: The lightest imaginable phenol drifts over the nose like glider over the Antrim coast. Quiet and barely noticeable unless you look for it, but what it surveys is rather beautiful.

 

Palate: Stunning texture – a mix of light ulmo honey and mocha makes for the friendliest and most beautiful delivery and follow through. The deft smoke drifts about without portfolio.

 

Finish: Long, slightly fruity now, with a lovely balance of stone fruits and sherry influence, which linger delightfully before finally giving way to rich mocha and that wonderful final kiss of smoke.

Nose: Apricots, grapefruit and toasted almonds open up to fresh green cooking apples, before warming to apple tatin, lightly spiced calvados caramel creme and a dark fruit compote.

 

Palate: Freshly picked green apples, fruit sorbet, soft orchard fruit salad, then raisins, figs and stewed dates from the PX sherry cask influence, and all while that base of sweet malt,  light marzipan sponge cake, and that splendid candied orange grace note we have come to expect from Dunville’s releases.

 

Finish: Clean malt is interspersed with vanilla panna cotta, dried tropical fruits, Clove, oak spice and a lingering of PX sherry.

 

Dunville’s PX 12 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey

Nose:  Layering of tropical and orchard fruits and light pepper spices encompassed in soft, powerful but controlled oak, and then a definite hint of Christmas cake that speaks of the quality of the PX sherry hogsheads.

 

Palate: Green apples, freshly cut green grass, banana cake, spiced vanilla custard and that wonderful Dunville’s candied orange grace note accompanying the dried fruits, raising, figs and sweet luxurious sherry.

 

Finish: Medium finish. Voluptuous, juicy and chewy. While the warmth and sweet sherry carry through, the final say is reserved for that wonderfully controlled oak, which reveals itself in the last lingering moments of the finish.
