The Dublin Liberties Copper Alley is a 10-year-old single malt Irish whiskey. It is initially aged in ex-bourbon barrels for ten years, before being given a finishing period in fine Oloroso sherry casks for around 6 months. This process results in a whiskey with a complex flavor profile, with notes of honey, apple blossom, red fruits, chocolate, raisins, and nuts.

Description

Nose

Initial: Delicate sweetness of honey and powdered sugar

As it opens: Floral notes emerge, with hints of apple blossom and ripe red fruits like strawberries or raspberries.

Subtle hints: Some reviewers also detect a touch of spice, like cinnamon, or even a hint of citrus peel, like orange.

Palate

First impression: Full-bodied and creamy mouthfeel.

Flavor profile: A mix of sweet and fruity notes unfolds. Hints of dark chocolate, toffee, and malt add complexity.

Background notes: Oak influence becomes apparent, offering a dry counterpoint to the sweetness. Some reviewers mention subtle baking spices like nutmeg or ginger.

Finish

Initial: A long and lingering explosion of flavor, dominated by notes derived from the sherry cask. Expect a wave of dried fruit and a rich sweetness.

As it fades: The sherry influence gives way to some spicy notes like ginger, oak, and maybe even a touch of white pepper. Nutty flavors, particularly sugared almonds, become more prominent towards the very end.
