The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show 2012 took place at October 6th and 7th and although it has been a great experience it has been a short one. With over 450 whiskies to taste and just barely six hours ahead it was impossible to taste them all.
What I couldn’t taste
This post is just a set of photos of what I couldn’t taste. Sorry, people… I can write about this because I get sad… so great stuff that I had to skip… *sniff*
I visited Compass Box stand for saying hi to Chris and I take a few photos with the people on the show.
“ Lots of peat and combustion engines aromas! I love this whiskey!”
A rarer single cask bottling of Connemara.
This is a 13 year old peated Irish whiskey, distilled at Cooley and bottled from a single cask.
On the contrary to the tradition of Scotland, this single cask whiskey isn't bottled at cask strength but at 46%... which I think it is a mistake by the way.
Wonderful irish whiskey nonetheless.
This dram has a white-like color.
Nose (92): inexistent.
sweet, peat, leather, banana, motor oil, a little floral.
First nosing data is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.
Palate (92): .
peat, sweet, citrus, floral, some peat, a little wood.
Bouquet data is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.
Finish (92): no finish.
peat, motor oil, a little wood.
Finish length is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.
So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Connemara Single Cask with 92 points over 100.
