Dublin, the capital of Ireland. Know for its literary history, funky festivals, mystery, magic and The Dublin Liberties, launched in 2015 and the new distillery will open in 2018. The dynamic neighbourhood, Liberties in Dublin has a lot of old warehouses and these whiskey bottles, they look a bit like miniature warehouses.
Straight, small, with character and each with their own story. Perhaps you need some imagination, but I see two Whiskey warehouses with a golden future.
I love a bit of mystery, who doesn’t. This was going to be an online Tweet Tasting, and everyone was able to follow this online via Twitter #DublinLibertiesWhiskey. Nosing and tasting whiskey, not knowing who might be watching, can be seen as a bit of mystery. Nevertheless, it is always a blast. So was this evening, an epic one of Irish whiskey discovery with exploring two expressions, The Dublin Liberties Oak Devil and The Dublin Liberties Copper.
The Dublin Liberties Oak Devil – 46%
- Color: Amber
- Nose: Honey, dark fruit, cherries, spicy, caramel, pepper, cinnamon, peach, pears, strong and ripe pineapple, a complexity of medicinal influences
- Taste: Complexity of fruit, dark fruit, ripe pears, smooth and very oily hints of sweetness, toffee with a layer of caramel. Very nice with hints of cinnamon, honey, salty & liquorice
- Finish: Smooth and lingering
The Dublin Liberties Oak Devil is a non-chill filtered Irish Whiskey 46% and a blend of malts and grain whiskeys that have aged for three years in Bourbon casks. The devil represents a legend of a loose area of the city known as “Hell” during the 1700’s. The Oak Devil is a smooth and spicy premium whiskey, distilled and matured in Ireland.
