Dunville's 1808 700ml 40% ABV, a new blended whiskey which tastes great neat, with a mixer or in a classic cocktail.
Dunville’s 1808 is a modern blend of malt, grain and pot still whiskeys. The latest release from The Spirit of Belfast boasts notes of vanilla, apples, pears, candied lemon peel and sweet spices – vivacious and full of character, like the city of its birth.
The name 1808 pays homage to the year Dunville’s Irish Whiskey was founded in Belfast, from where it went on to become one of the world’s most famous whiskeys.
Nose: Initial burst of sweet vanilla leads to crisp orchard fruits, apples and pears. Then lemon curd, leading on to candied Lemon peel over notes of clean malt.
Palate: Soft and creamy mouthfeel, buttery, with ripened citrus and baked biscuit, coming together in a burst of fresh lemon meringue, followed by a wisp of char and white pepper.
Finish: Slight hints of dry smoke linger and intertwine with the juicier fruit notes, carrying through to a finish of sweet spice.
