  1. Coldorak scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Notes taken from my blog

    Lovely dram, very fruity, a nice mouthfeel, spices clearly there but not overpowering and a good finish. Pretty good value for £60.
    • Nose
      Apple and honey at first, quickly followed by soft oak spices, then a grassy and floral side. It’s slightly pepperish as it’s tingling in your nostrils. With water, the nose seems a bit tone down.
    • Taste
      Very sweet arrival before spices (cinnamon and ginger) gently kick in. The mouthfeel is quite thick, good coverage. It’s fruity with melon, cherry, banana and lemon peel. Reduction brings out some tropical fruits and tones down the spices a bit, but just a wee bit.
    • Finish
      Medium with fruits fading away slowly, leaving a very slight touch of oak.

    • Nose
      Quite light and fruity. Pears, apples, a hint of bananas and fresh lemons in the background. Followed by some vanilla and icing sugar. There’s a grassy note too.
    • Taste
      Less fruity than the nose suggests. They are still here, but more towards the background. Creamy texture and it’s somewhat malty. Vanilla. A pinch of salt. Grapefruit. Followed by some spices, like white pepper and ginger.
    • Finish
      short to mid-long, with grassy notes and spices.

  3. Sensefreak scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Nice and gentle Irish whisky. Lightly fruity notes. Fresh but not very long finish. Middle of the road without doing any harm.

    Tasted this from a sample: Smells fruity (a bit, mainly pears I would say). Tastes fruity but rather thin, a bit alcoholic too - obviously rather young spirit.
    OK, but nothing special -79P

    My lovely horse is back though this batch was already released last year in 2017. This year [2018], TBWC released another Irish batch 2, a 12yo.

    N: A quiet, dry bourbon cask fruitiness, mainly on honey & lemon.
    T: A gentle start before the putty fruits open out a little.
    F: Dry sweet putty barley sugars and bourbon candy.
    C: Young distillate style, at times more Speyside than Irish, but we know this regions game is a tenuous one. Reminds me most of James Eadie’s Trade Mark X.Scores a C[+]

  8. detachedblue scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    This is a decent Irish dram, light and fruity, still much preferred the batch 1
    • Nose
      Not bad, vanilla, little grass and then typical Irish fruits, but to be honest, batch 1 is much better
    • Taste
      Oaky, fruity, salty, buttery
    • Finish
      Short and grassy

  10. holborndrinker scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Well worth a look.
    • Nose
      Fresh fruit on the nose - quite a gentle start.
    • Taste
      Quite a strong taste - warming.  Traces of bourbon in the background.
    • Finish
      A surprising long finish - not as soft as many Irish whiskies.
