  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nose: light, not very intense in aromas. Crème brûlée, banana, subtle milk chocolate. Palate: What is this flavor that climbs you on the palate? What a surprise ! Buttered, sweet texture. Slightly herbaceous touch, final: very short in aroma but sticky. A product not very fine but original! Enthusiasm 4/5

  6. Ivynor scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Very marked wood and vanilla, but not dry. The rose brings originality. Very simple for a young single grain. 82.5 I would say.
    • Nose
      In the sample, a very bourbon nose (wood, vanilla). But in the glass, more complex than it seems: a strong impression of agricultural rum, sweeter. Sugar cane, olives, and also a lot of floral notes (pink!). Bags of vanilla.
    • Taste
      Very sweet, sweet, slightly creamy. We find the rose, touches of spices, and a lot of vanilla. Always this impression of agricultural rum, with notes of green cane.
    • Finish
      Medium, woody, sweet and always on the cane not ripe.

  8. Willie JJ scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

     A very nice grain. It seems to be matured in good quality casks, because 15 years is not that old for a grain to be this good.
    • Nose
      Hint of rubber? Loads of vanilla. Tasted blind this was obviously a grain whiskey. Hint of banana.
    • Taste
      More vanilla with heaps of icing sugar.
    • Finish
      Very short, but sweet.

  9. I_SPEY scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The colour is gold, with an interesting and rather complex nose: oak, vanilla, honey, bitter(almonds) and spices; in the palate there`s marzipan, spices, banana, oak and some fruits, very balanced, delicate and delicious; the finish is long, gentle and smooth. Hummm!

    Not the best Irish I've had.
    • Nose
      Vanilla pound cake.  Lemon furniture polish.  Lumber yard.  
    • Taste
      Delicate.  Honey and marzipan.  Fruit cake.  Soft lemon.  More vanilla.
    • Finish
      Extremely short.  Fresh fruit.
