Dram Review: The Whisky Agency Irish Single Malt Whiskey 1998 Aged 21 Years

[51.3%・Distilled in 1998・Bottled in 2019・ 21 Years Old・The Whisky Agency Bottling ・Single Cask Release of 208 Bottles] 

Nose:

Rather spirit-y still at 21 years of age, utterly Irish with the greenness of the malt with a noted metallic edge but has a fine layer of floral sugar with added sweetness from guavas, canes and green apples.

Palate & Finish:

Now the palate is a treat, vibrant with pineapples and red cherries seasoned with vanilla sugar, passion fruits and custard apples balance well with the spiciness from the spirit.

Sugar cured fruits and tangling spices, with a diluted showing of sultana.

Thoughts:

A bit worrying on the nose but turns out to be an impressively fruity Irish whiskey, probably one for the diehards out of the recent TWA offerings..
