Knappogue Castle 1951 36 Year Old Irish Whiskey/Bottled in 1987

Aromas of succulent, dried fruit, oaky vanillin, marzipan, candied almond and buttercream chocolates—an altogether enticing and mature bouquet. Thankfully, not a plump, warm and fuzzy Sherry-a-thon in the taste stage; the crisp spirit keeps the taste buds engaged as the flavor shifts to the moderately candied side of the ledger. Finishes refreshing, agile and clean. P.P.
