    Somewhat thinner whiskey that does not justify the higher price, in my opinion.
    • Nose
      Sweet, honey, vanilla, floral. Slight smell though. Some lemon now.
    • Taste
      Soft, slightly thin, sweet, honey, vanilla.
    • Finish
      Slightly stimulating now, sweet, vanilla, honey, reasonably long yet.

  7. BottleBox scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Despite its "only" 40% vol. Alc. a very good Irish whiskey. Absolutely great.
    • Nose
      Peach, honey melon, delicate oak tones, vanilla, roasted malt, fennel with 2-3 drops of water joins a fine tobacco note
    • Taste
      Sweet, strong (I would not have believed it at all) - delicately aromatic. Not slapping. Very "well balanced". Chremig and harsh in the end
    • Finish
      Sherry and oak influences gain the upper hand and the tobacco is more pronounced. What a table cover for whiskey connoisseurs
