    Typical Irishman. Mild, sweet, but also boring. Nothing special. For less than 20 euros it can be

    Nothing too special but a very solid cheap option if you are in the market for an Irish whiskey.

    its quite sweet, with fruity tones, a hint of citrus dried fruit and chocolate

  3. Michspan scored this whisky 75 points Member Junior

    Full of flavour, blackcurrants/strawberries. Nutty on the nose. Super price quality

  4. MarcinB scored this whisky 72 points Member Senior

    Smell: sweet, milky cake, sponge cake, more accurate investigation reveals delicate citrus fruits.
    First impression: definietly Irish whiskey. Some kinds of sweetness in rather pleasent combination. Nothing special, nothing bad.
    Finish: short. Natural taste prolongation.
    Whiskey like many.

    Good as chaser with Guinness, not the whiskey that i'll enjoy on its own.

  8. Tangtang_WhiskyYoda scored this whisky 72 points Connoisseur

    quite pleasant blend, however, I find it too reserved and soft in the aromas. In my opinion, these come out too weak. But the PLV is good.

    Nice, caramel and sweet, reminiscent of chewing gum since childhood, soft and even delicate, light, pleasant.
