Vibrant with notes of melon, figs, toffee andlemon
A balance mix of dry fruits, citrus, vanilla, spice and cloves
Long with sweetness in harmony with dry tannins from the wood
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Soft, ripe apple, banana and nutmeg overlay sweet cereal notes in this fun, tangy grain whiskey. On the palate, the profile shifts to oak -derived caramel, clove, and hints of dried red fruits juxtaposed with crisp, well-defined wood tannins. (Apr 2016)
Malt Advocate 87 points - A new multi-vintage core expression of independent Irish single malt compiled from a vatting of whiskey finished variously in port, sherry, white burgundy, cabernet sauvignon, and Madeira. The nose suggests honey, baked lemons, ground almonds, desiccated coconut, white pepper, and soft toffee. A fabulously thick texture; thank goodness for their insistence on non-chill filtering. It’s fruity with twinkling spice, pepper, root ginger, and vanilla orbiting around a fudge-like core. The oak is present on the dry finish.
