The Tipperary 10 Year Knockmealdowns is made by the The Tipperary Boutique Distillery. It is newly released in May 2017 and is one of the limited editions of the Irish distillery’s Mountain Range series. This single malt comprised of only 6 barrels, aged in ex-bourbon barrels. The Tipperary Boutique Distillery takes pride in their non-chill filtered whiskies and this expression is no different. We are confident that this beautiful single malt will be snagging awards pretty soon!
Colour: Pale Gold
Nose: Both fruits and grass come through the nose, with fennel and vanilla cream coming on strongly. Follows closely by honey, pineapples and lemon curd topped with cinnamon. Pretty much like a dessert buffet with some fennel as a side dish. (16 points)
Palate: A sweet mouthful of tropical fruits, dried mango and lemon drops with hints of white pepper and oak spice. Pleasantly sweet with just a little spice to make it exciting. (16 points)
Body: A well-balanced body with the sweetness of tropical fruits. Hints of spice adds to the complexity of the whisky. (33 points)
Finish: The finish is medium with notes of hay and tobacco leaves, making your breathe feels fresh and lively. (15 points)
Total Grade: 80 points
