  1. stefan_PB scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Interesting whiskey. Tastes very nice to Port. If your own distillates are just as good, you can look forward to it.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Stone fruit (plum?), A bourbon touch penetrates through with a fine woody odor, above all a beautiful Portaroma
    • Taste
      84 84
      cooked plum compote, a little spiciness, a very soft whiskey, also a trace of butter biscuit is tastable
    • Finish
      86 86
      Beautiful long finish with a hint of fruit. At the end, the oak is balanced.

  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Surprisingly positive in the mouth, you can discover a lot, the finish is also beautiful astringent, pleases! Significant increase to NAS from Virgin Oak.
    • Nose
      Maraschino liqueur, pickled cherries, toffee and a little honey, but all that rather reserved, cinnamon and some fennel, some tannins and leather, dark chocolate and cherry pits, Wekchen and fresh dough
    • Taste
      Fresh cherry juice, a little unripe cherries, toffee and some white pepper, clove, nutmeg, fennel, some eucalyptus (the spicy and minty notes seem to be the distillery character), cherry pits, some red apple, grapefruit and some blood orange with time in the mouth nice fuller and also fruity with slight bitterness, the spicy parts go back, beautiful honey with oregano and thyme, malt, bread dough, but nice in the mouth for the%
    • Finish
      Dry, malt, cherry pits, pepper and nutmeg, tea, bread dough, honey, medium to long

    Blind one would not necessarily have to consider him an Irishman. The port barrel is perceptible, but not dominant. A slightly different Irishman ...
    • Nose
      Pickled cherries, grape berries, slightly sour, but not unpleasant touch from the port barrel. Fresh wood shines through, now and then also the one or the other spice. Fresh bread dough with yeast.
    • Taste
      Red fruits and surprisingly intense wood at the beginning. Dry. Caramel sweet, ginger, pepper.
    • Finish
      Medium to short, still the red berries, herbs, some honey. Disappear quickly, leaving only cool menthol behind.
