Irish single malt extra old whisky-fassle

Irish Single Malt Extra Old (Whisky-Fässle)

It’s whisky. From Ireland. Made from malted barley. And that’s all I know about the Irish Single Malt Extra Old from Whisky-Fässle. I’d love to know its age. Considering the hefty price (over 150 euro) I assume there’s at least a fair amount of old whisky in here. But I guess we’ll never know.

Irish Single Malt Extra Old (50,6%, Whisky-Fässle)

Nose: Very delicate and subtle. Fruity and sweet. Cotton candy, candied bananas, and some pineapple. Sugar-y too, but also some freshly cut grass.
Taste: There’s this sweet fruitiness, similar to what I already described above. But the grassiness is more eminent on the palate, also a hint of menthol and white pepper.
Finish: Grassy, short to medium.

Rating: 83

Good, but not exactly exciting. I often like my whiskies delicate, balanced and subtle, but this might be a tad too delicate and subtle.
