  2. Olybrius scored this whisky 87 points Member Junior

    I love this whiskey simple and unpretentious, excellent value for money. A very sweet and fresh Irish to sip in the summer!
    • Nose
      A fairly fresh nose, on pear, apple and green banana, as well as mint (syrup, more than fresh mint), a little canned pineapple, vanilla, candle wax and cereals.
    • Taste
      First, an impression of sucking on an old copper piece, then evolving on fresh almond, and, in the continuity of the nose, pear and green banana, then finally honey.
    • Finish
      Quite short, but here it is not a problem. Make you want to take a sip immediately.

  3. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Drinkable, but really nothing special, for the price that is really ok yet.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, light green apple, dough, melon, some cereals, very organic / muesli-like everything, grape seeds
    • Taste
      Apricot, funny tart notes with coriander, cereals, honey and toffee, dry grass, hay, apple peel
    • Finish
      Apple peel, melon, honey, some dough again, shortly more

  4. wisekycourse scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    A nice blend with the characteristic smell of small butter that melts in the mouth!
    After, the lemon and the seeds of anise come to decorate this flavor.
    It is very sweet, unctuous .. and it lacks a little to be raised alcohol level.

  5. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Nose expressive, malt. Aqueous and soft mouth, a bit bitter. Final rather short. Very average.

  6. Ivynor scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    An excellent quality / price ratio and an irrepressible Irish in its category. Aeration tends to lose the cookie side to make room for more bitterness and cereals.
    • Nose
      A little creamy, biscuit little butter, orange liqueur tip, cereals, the freshness of some medicinal plants. With aeration, the grain tends to dominate.
    • Taste
      Noticeably the same things as on the nose. Pretty greedy, creamy. Always the triptych cereals - small butter - orange liquor. Then herbs on the end of mouth, more bitter.
    • Finish
      Long enough. Cream, biscuit, cereals and herbs. Maybe melon.

    Highly praised in the Bible and whiskey fun - but I personally can not win so much from this drop because of the green appeal. Similar to what happened to me at the Arran NonChillFiltered. But all grades and descriptions are subjective and arguable and should be ...
    • Nose
      fresh start with fruit: pears, green apples, lemon; Sultanas, vanilla, cereals. All this together makes a Bircher Muesli ...
    • Taste
      again fruit, honey and a spiciness, something reminiscent of bitter green tea
    • Finish
      again, a fruit mix, dates, the green tea and a hint of graphite of a pencil to create an affinity to the Schiftstellern and poets

  9. Jean-Brice scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Excellent entry-level whiskey
    Good value for money. Less than 40
    • Nose
      Fruity (melon), honeyed, vanilla, minty
    • Taste
      Sweet, sweet
    • Finish
      Slightly woody and spicy
