Dun Leire 8 yo (Sainsburys) 40%


Produced by the Irish distiller Cooley, for Sainsburys. I'm on my second, if not third, bottle since it came out a year or two ago and it's stayed consistently good. A really distinctive, light and flavoursome malt. And readily available from your friendly local supermarket. Would still be a great whisk(e)y at three or four times the price.

Nose: not much. A bit zesty.
Mouth: lovely- smooth, sweet honey, citrus fruits. Very smooth.
Finish: lingering, complex, not a hint of sharpness.

Malt whisky doesn't have to be expensive to be really very good indeed.
