Dingle Single Malt, Batch 5, 46.5% Abv
Appearance – Light Gold in colour, sticks well to the glass, and drops slowly running thick legs.
Nose – Lemon, Icing sugar, Cream soda, Pineapple and Vanilla.
Palate – Oily coating mouth feel, Honey, Vanilla, Lemon, strawberry, Stewed fruits, sultana, fig, Currents, Cinnamon, Soft spices and White pepper.
Finish – Medium to long, warming, spicy, with lovely wood notes.
My thoughts – This is a wonderfully engaging Single Malt, it’s very welcoming and draws you into it’s deeper flavours. It’s also well balanced between the ex Bourbon, Px and Madeira casks.
Would I buy a bottle? – Without a doubt.
