An intriguing Irish whiskey from Belfast. The brand was previously a much loved whiskey produced by Dunville distillery in Belfast at the start of the 20th century. Unfortunately, the distillery stopped producing in the 1930s, like many other Irish distillers. Thankfully, the brand has now been revived by Echlinville distillery, the first new distillery to receive their license in 125 years. Echlinville are a fascinating new distillery, with a commitment to terroir, growing all the barley they use in the fields that surround the distillery. They use state of the art equipment to create a delicious pot still whiskey. The whiskey is of a beautiful Irish pot still style, with rich vanilla, cereal and spice flavours. The palate has a chewy chocolate character, whilst the finish is aromatic and grassy. A great dram to try, back from the dead!
A very good Irish. A few I have tried are better but for the price this whiskey is damn good.
