WhiskyJason reviews The Temple Bar 15 year old Single Malt Irish Whiskey

The Temple Bar 15 5 year old Single Malt Irish Whiskey is a special bottling of the owner Tom Cleary from The Temple Bar. This bottling was filled for the occasion of the 175th anniversary of the Temple Bar. With this bottling the hospitality and joy of the bar was celebrated.

The Temple Bar was founded in 1840 as a wine and spirits trader. It is still the meeting point for young and old in the vibrant Temple Bar district in Dublin. For this bottling the best bourbon barrels of the 15-year-old single malt were selected and filled at 40% ABV.

Each bottle is individually numbered and has a great gift box. The barrels for this whiskey were stored the complete 15 years in the cellars of the Temple Bar.

The whiskey was distilled on small pot stills. It has a very distinctive and harmonious flavor in which the fruit notes harmonize wonderfully with wood tones.

 

#006 – Tipperary Single Cask Red Wine Finish Single Malt Irish Whiskey Review from WhiskyJason

WhiskyJason reviews Tipperary Single Cask Red Wine Finish Single Malt Irish Whiskey

The first individual bottling of the Tipperary Boutique Distillery is something very special. The whiskey first matured for a full 9 years in an Oloroso Sherry barrel, before it matured for a nice balanced finish in a red wine barrel. The whiskey was bottled exclusively for the German market.

The red wine barrel was selected from the Bodega Faustino from Spain. The Rioja wine was matured in this barrel before the whiskey was finished in it , so the Tipperary single cask red wine finish single malt Irish whiskey has a nice dark color and a great dark fruit note.

WhiskyJason reviews Tipperary Knockmealdown Single Malt Irish Whiskey

Knockmealdown is the first release of the Tipperary Limited Edition Mountain Range, “The Knockmealdowns” is created from only 6 casks, matured in Ireland for 10 years in ex-bourbon barrels. The whiskey is cut to 47% with water from Ballindoney farm in Tipperary, owned by the co-founding family, the Ahearns.

Knockmealdowns whiskey honours the Knockmealdown mountain range, which straddles the border between County Tipperary and Waterford. The highest peak, the Knockmealdown, stands at 2,605 feet and looks down from the south over the plain of land on which Ballindoney farm lies.

A particularly picturesque area, the Knockmealdown mountains are home to the “Vee”, a V-shaped turn on the road up Sugarloaf hill. This is one of the most scenic locations in Ireland, and on a clear day you can look out over 3 counties: Tipperary, Waterford and Limerick.
