  1. craide scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nice round Irishman, not too overloaded. Absolutely something for the nose. He's really good there. It does not quite hold the aromas on the palate. Still worthwhile.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Initially slightly scratchy on the nose, a bit alcoholic, typical sherry note, you still get plums, raisins and dates. A little orange zest with a nice, slightly syrupy note of forest honey. This alcoholic scratching quickly gives way to a light spice note with nutmeg and a little cinnamon, nice and subtle in the background. A little dark chocolate with resin and furniture polish still gets through. Everything seems rather deep and heavy here, but in no way overloaded. Nice round and versatile nose.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Oily, somewhat juicy with oranges, ripe bananas. Sparkling, spicy and spicy, great pot-still character, dark fruits and chocolate dominate, in the background the sweet with a note of cinnamon. Oak wort with a nice malt taste.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium-length finish, dry, chocolate, spices, a little leather and chewing tobacco round it all off.
