Dà Mhile -
This limited edition, single cask bottling has been named to represent the shield of the first patron, Chris Philips, a proud investor in Da Mhile’s first cask of organic single malt Welsh whisky.
Description: A Welsh distillery that is often overlooked, Da Mhile has released its first single malt, an organic-certified whisky named after the shield of one of its first patrons, Chris Phillips. The whisky is sourced from a single oloroso sherry cask.
Nose: Herbal, medicinal, and spicy insanity. Cinnamon predominates but then gives way to mint and Vic’s Vaporub. Liquorice and cumin also coming through. It’s a huge nose.
Taste: Dual herbal and sweet layers run together side by side. On one hand is the cinnamon, heated butter, brown sugar, and milk chocolate. On the other is the basil, rosemary, mint, liquorice, and cherry Tylenol. They complement each other nicely.
Overall: Not for everyone. This is a really weird whisky, but totally unique. 8.5/10
