...because most Irish whiskeys offer a delicate fruity-honey profile, like this one. It is not the most complex one but who needs complexity if both nose and taste are that delicious. I like it!
The colour is pale gold and the nose offers the typical fruity and honeyed profile most Irish distilleries own. It is not the most complex one but very delicate and nicely balanced with the spicy wooden notes. No off-note that I can find, this is delicious to sniff!
The taste is fruity-sweet with honeys, waxes, barley sugars and some spices. This is tasty and very quaffable even if it is not very complex. Water releases more aromas in the nose (earthy, chalky) and the nutty flavours of the finish pop up earlier, together with an impression of white chocolate.
The dram arrives a little hot and nicely coating on the palate without distracting moments. The finish is of medium length and adds some tasty nutty flavours. Again, no distracting bitter or drying moments. By the way, I do not find any significant peaty or smokey notes - neither in the nose nor taste...
