    malt sweetness, caramelized, toasted, vanilla, leather too, dried grapes, sweet spices on cinnamon
    fruity sweetness as on a very good blended where the fruit basket mixes the scents, on the fruit compote (central apple) with the sugar that turns to caramel, heat in the mouth suddenly, a little varnish, leather, the cooked vanilla and the fruits come back cooked and sweet, the almond paste coming to soften even more.
    spicy sweet, cinnamon, marzipan, Christmas cake, melting almonds, fruit in syrup, sweet and quite long in fact on a monolithic finish that delights.

    Alc. 46% vol.
    The aroma is sweetish. The first wave is vanilla, some citrus fruits, candies, canned peaches, and spicy spices. They stood ... breathed ... black currants, prunes appeared.
    The taste is bright, sweet-peppery. Canned peaches, vanilla, berry jam, lemonade notes, light grassiness, plentiful pepper, barrel.
    Finish - long, sweet - peppery, vanilla, pepper, herb, barrel.
    Solid Irish whisky, with a good balance, not cheap for derivatives. If we compare with the previously tested samples of Teeling 24 yo and Midelton Barry Crockett Legacy, then this copy is brighter, more concentrated, more "daring". Someone will like it, some will not.

    First impression: it does not come up to the level of the older ones
    Teasels with the distinctive, tropical fruit notes

    The Madeira cask finish is only too, if at all
    guess. As a lover of good Madeira, I had
    expected a little more.

    Still a very good whisky and I'm curious
    whether it will develop positively in the opened bottle.

    The presentation and packaging of the bottle is, however
    spectacular. Great bottle with heavy cork and
    wide metal handle. The whole thing in a very nice way
    and very sturdy box with magnetic closure and
    the bottle embedded in high quality foam.
    A big movie theater. The collector will be delighted there
    to have.

      All around drinkable. Pleasant Madeira sweetness at the beginning and spicy notes at the end

  9. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very full and fruity, tasteful. The 46% Abv suits this whiskey very well, perfectly balanced. Very pleasant.
    • Nose
      Very full, intense and fruity. Spicy, orange, candy-like. Red fruits, berries. Plants as well, 'green'. And a hint of banana.
    • Taste
      Smooth, but full bodied. Then some pickering mouthfeel. Very fruity, red fruits, berries, oranges. Honey.
    • Finish
      Pretty powerful, fruity, red fruits, raspberry, honey. Candy-like again, Haribo. Pretty long, some licorice.
