  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Something different. Normally I’m not that into Irish whiskey except for the Redbreast single potstill whiskey’s. But an Irish single grain..that’s a first I think. So I’m rather curious.
    • Nose
      Clearly a grain, but not a big glue impact. It’s very light. The nose is rather weak, I would have loved to taste this at higher strength. But what’s underneath this light nose, is actually quite good. With hand warmth the nose offers more. Light citrus fruits like lime, lychees and tangerine. Light spices like vanilla and some macaroons.
    • Taste
      Again ligt and gentle. Citrus fruits and oak shavings. Refill wood spice. Simple and rather one sided. A nice touch of anise joins in after 30 minutes in the glass.
    • Finish
      Finish is the best part. The refill sensations give the best combination here. Light fruits, several spices and a little more intense then in the nose and on the palate.

      All together not a bottle I would buy. Fun to have tried it but that’s about it. Irish triple distilled ánd young single grain make a little to less whisk(e)y for me. And the stated Bordeaux cask finish...well...I can’t find it anywhere.

  2. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Quite inexpressive, grain whiskey, with a characteristic smack of vodka.
    • Nose
      Gray bread, oatmeal, yeast. In the background is a newspaper.
    • Taste
      A drop of honey, rye bread and nutty bitterness.
    • Finish
      Short, with a chemical hint of vanilla and a touch of vodka. Notes of pear and yellow apple follow the background.
