The Dubliner 10-Year-Old – Our Oldest and Newest Expression.
Despite being the older brother of our Bourbon cask aged blend, The Dubliner 10-YEAR-OLD is the new kid on the block. Dublin Airport got the first sneak peek at this Limited Edition Release and its smooth and luxurious taste has gone down a storm with luck travellers from around the world. Bottled at 42% abv after 10 long years in bourbon casks, this single malt is one to savour. My tasting notes below – but don’t take my word on it, get some of your own.
Nose: A sweet slightly spicy aroma with overtones of vanilla, honey and perfume oily notes - very characterful and complex.
Palate: A rich malty flavour with a smoothness and at the end that hint of chocolate and vanilla coming through - it warms but doesn't burn.
Finish: A long smooth, slightly dry finish with hints of toffee and chocolate with a nice vanilla finish at the end. It almost floats on your tongue.... beautiful!
Serve it straight, or over a couple of cubes of ice if you prefer. Slainte.
