The Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey (700ml)

IRELAND
$74. 99 Bottle
$899.88 Dozen
ABV: 40%
Tasting note: Deep topaz. Shy but builds to medium intensity on the nose: Fruit cake, vanilla and honey drizzled weetbix... then a touch of rose water or Turkish delight? Flavourwise, dry and genteel with plum, prune and lady's handbag (potpourri or rose scented talc?) alongside gingerbread and dried fruits. Ends softly tannic, thinning out before the vanillas close. Odd. All malt, but doesn't really taste like it. 40% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... superb, lush delivery with peppers pounding, backed by some excellent tannins. Mocha and gingerbread meet the fruitcake full on in midstream... unmistakably malt from the old Bushmills distillery.

One of the most striking-looking new releases around, this bone-jangling, sepulchral, triple-distilled whiskey was once entombed in oloroso sherry butts. A nose of baked apple and sultana, rolled marzipan, sesame seeds, and roasted spices. Smooth tasting, with dark fleshy fruits, mixed peel, chocolate, walnut; the taut spicy middle section dies back to baked oranges. A dignified finish, with chocolate and nutmeg at the death. Ingest in peace. 40% Alc.Vol. 89 points - whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: Jonny McCormick (Spring 2018)
