  6. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Bright, distinctive and even slightly surprising whiskey, combining soft creamy bread and dry “dusty” herbal tones. It has depth and assertiveness due to a balanced blend of alcohols of different ages. I really liked this release!
    • Nose
      Delicate, multi-layered, bready, creamy and slightly peppery. In the background, you can feel dried herbs, a dusty book, earth, rotting foliage. Super!
    • Taste
      Dry, spicy, with hints of sweet pastry and vanilla, with a pleasant nutty-oak bitterness.
    • Finish
      Extremely long-lasting, on the whole repeating a rich palette of taste. Added echoes of mint and herbal tea.

    89 A good Irishman, much better than a mass market. The nose opens well in a blender glass. Strength seems higher. You can drink in Irish pubs, if you do not want lagavulin) 22-22,5-22,5-22

    Irish Whiskey Awards - Gold Medal Winner - Best Irish Single Pot Still 2019

    This Whiskey was created to commemorate the career of the former master distiller (Barry Crockett) who retired in 2013 after 47 years at the distillery. Barry himself helped to formulate this single pot still and it is highly regarded as one of the best in the range. The pot still elements used are drawn from light, medium & heavy styles. The spirit is mostly matured in first fill bourbon casks with a small amount going into virgin Amercian oak. There is no age statement but some of the whiskey used is very old (around 25 years).
