KNAPPOGUE CASTLE 1994 Ex Libris The Happy Prince


Quantity limited to 1 bottle.

This triple distilled single malt boasts such incredible freshness and youthful spirit it would be easy to forget its venerable age. Its passionately and incredibly eloquent fruity temperament and notes of agave and plant infusions as well as the honeys it invites us to savour and its spicy yet medicinal character are undoubtedly some of the highlights in a tasting that embodies Irish softness from head to toe.

Appearance : gold.
Nose : lively and creamy. The very complex first nose is in turns exotic (passion fruit, banana), herbaceous (verbena), resinous (pine) and roasted (coffee). Allowed to breathe, agave fragrances eloquently bring a tequila reposado to mind. Lime, salt and pepper take over the aroma palette. Boxwood, vanilla and porridge enthusiastically punctuate the first part of the tasting.
Palate : svelte, dynamic. The particularly exotic attack (kaffir lime, passion fruit, pineapple) is also spicy (clove) and medicinal (cough sweets). The refreshing mid-palate invites us to savour a delicious infusion of verbena and lime blossom honey. At the end of the palate, liquorice, cinnamon and chocolate coat the sides of the palate in a very pleasant bitterness.
Overall : long, rich. The particularly well-balanced start of the finish is at once luscious (white mint), tangy (lemon zest), herbaceous (tobacco, coriander) and jammy (peach, pear). As it lingers, the retro-nasal olfaction focuses on the deeply cocoa and liquorice nature of the flavour palette. The empty glass wavers between tiger balm, coconut milk and vanilla.
