  2. Wolfe Tone scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Sherry cask on the nose, with cacao, raisins and tropical fruits, also some banana, marzipan, leather and some pot still character.

    Loads of fruit, honey and grains on the taste, not subtle, but tasty nonetheless, some spices and almonds in the finish.

    Sweet, oak, maple syrup, vanilla, coconut, some menthol and oak cabinet wall. Got something of a good old single grain.

    This is my favorite! Very good balanced, and the spicy and sherry finish is excellent.

  10. Blo scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Not bad, far superior to his colleague without mention of age. The nose is rather good, though classic, the mouth is average and the finish almost non-existent. In the end a blend unpretentious and easy to drink.
    • Nose
      Not so light at 40%. From the classic apple, a little woody notes. We feel a certain sweetness, characteristic of the Irish. A nice nose not too marked by the grain.
    • Taste
      Here the reduction is much more felt. Not much to put in their mouths, yellow fruits, and especially a slight woody bitterness at the end of the mouth that reminds us that we are dealing with a blend here!
    • Finish
      Those final?
