My Two Cents
One tasting this edition of Waterford should be aware that this whisky is from Ireland and it is only 3 years old! Well, it is 3 years, 10 months and 23 days old as specified but that is technically only 3 years old by law. And in the UK, this is a young age! If you ask me, 3 years is even young for the American whiskies, but that is another conversation.
Tasting these young whiskies was a journey through what Waterford claims to be the impact of terroir. My ratings will be showing the spirit quality of a young whisky but I am actually expecting more than that.
I found Ballymorgan Edition 1.1’s character to be promising. The palate has an incredible potential to develop. Despite its young age, whisky has rich and layered flavors with a distinctive malty sweetness. With time, the nose gets piny notes and the palate gains some caramel flavors.
I do feel Ballymorgan Edition 1.1. is one of the ‘more mature’ feeling bottles among the Single Farm Origin releases so far.
All whiskies in the Single Farm Origin series gave me a different perspective, which I am thankful for.
