The Irish whiskey historians out there might recognise the Dunville name. It was a brand once produced by the biggest distillery in Belfast, though sadly in the 1930s the brand was lost to the ravages of time.
However, the Echlinville distillery (which recently became the first distillery in Northern Ireland in over 130 years) has taken up the reins of the Dunville name. And here it is, Dunville’s Very Rare Irish blended whiskey, back once again!
Fresh green apples on the nose, with some green grass and tropical chews. Softer and sweeter on the palate, with bubblegum, apple Jolly Ranchers and some spiced custard.
Complex citrus notes with a little confected sweetness. Sweet tropical fruit up front. Winey finish like a dry Riesling, leading to integrated wood.
