    [May, 2020] A quick review of a small sample....

    ...that is the typical fruity Irish on the palate with a much more subtle (and delicate) nose and an average mouthfeel/finish only. It is very quaffable like most old Irish drams (provided you own deep pockets)
    • Nose
      89 89
      The colour is pale gold and the nose offers the typical fruity-honeyed Irish profile but it is far from being a fruit bomb. Actually, all aromas are somewhat shy and it seems as if no one dares to enter the spotlight first. That is not bad because it creates a very balanced and harmonic profile this way but the "special kick hunters" might be a little disappointed. I am not as I like such subtle and delicate noses. Take your time and let it breathe for quite a while - it will reward you.
    • Taste
      90 90
      The taste is much fruitier - now it comes close to what most people expect from an old Irish dram. All different kinds of fruit intermingle on the palate with significant and somewhat bitter wooden notes which provide a good countermeasure to the sweet fruity attack. There are additional waxes, grassy and floral impressions, and spices, of course. This is very quaffable, no doubt.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The initial mouthfeel is warming but only a little coating, unfortunately. The finish is of medium length and focusses more on the spicy side of the dram without distracting moments. The wood is firm but not too excessive and its slight bitter note is welcomed in this setting. Water is not needed as it just flattens both nose and taste without contributing significant new impressions.
