    a very good quality, well matured Irish whiskey, with a complex nose and taste (june 2017)

      (water) nose become lighter and simpler, some honey, vanilla, nougat

      (neat) sweet, bitter oak, some spices, taste turns drier in development, brown sugar, cinnamon
      (water) quite complex, semi-sweet and bitter taste, with dark dried fruits

  4. Monsieur Dram scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    A whiskey more aromatic than the original version. An entry level also correct, but lacks complexity to be really interesting. It is nonetheless entertaining.
    • Nose
      a completely different profile of the "Original". Here we are on heavier notes, sweeter. We always have the feeling of feeling a dog after the rain but this whiskey seems nevertheless more complex. We really feel the influence of Sherry's barrel: orange, nuts, rotten wood. The caramel is perfectly noticeable. And then, we have some notes of sulfur, hidden behind this sweet side not very engaging. Fruits: banana, apricot, peach, cherries. A little freshness with mint. It's sweeter than the "original" version.
    • Taste
      it's more powerful than the "Original". Notes of nuts, wood, coffee and caramel. The woody notes are shaded with fruity notes. Nevertheless, it is much rounder than the "Original". There are notes of toast also.
    • Finish
      of a correct length, despite the reduction. Not unpleasant.

  5. domani scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    A tasty-sweet whiskey - 13.11.2014
    • Nose
      Malt sweetness, vanilla, slightly spicy
    • Taste
      Very sweet, vanilla, toffee, mild body
    • Finish
      Short

  6. Pépé scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    A cute nose although only slightly expressive, the rest fishing too much to spend all over 80. Mouth harmless and very simple, final nonexistent.
    • Nose
      Grain notes immediately on the nose. We have milk chocolate, a touch of cream, a few light fruits - apricots and peaches - and vanilla-coconut. A touch of menthol and traces of nuts and almonds. Nobody in the lot is frankly stunning.
    • Taste
      The texture is almost watery, the milk chocolate still in attack, nuts and caramel. The development is particularly short! On the other hand alcohol leaves us relatively painstaking.
    • Finish
      Short. Caramel-vanilla.

  7. Sandman scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    My notes from 18-8-2014
    • Nose
      Sweet sherry, fruity, orange, mint, flowers and licorice
    • Taste
      Creamy, milk chocolate, fruit, raisins, peppermint and cherries
    • Finish
      Meduim, fruity, sweet, oak and grains at the end

      acqueuse, liquoreuse
    • Finish
      short
