    Drank this with Edition 2020 side by side.

    Edition 2019 (84/100)
    N: Sweet Vanilla, caramel, toffee, light banana
    P: similar to the nose, bit of citrus if you wait for 10mins
    F: Medium, light bitter, Nutty
    Water : like a juicy candy, this stuff should water down to round 40%.

    Edition 2020 (86.5/100)
    N: lemon peel, Sweet Vanilla , light banana
    P: sweet, citrus, nutty
    F: Medium, longer than 2019, quite similar with the palate
    Water: more sweetness and the toffee came, but it isn’t necessary to add water.

    I can feel spicier in 2019 than 2020, although the abv is 2% less.
    Both of it is simple and easy to drink, not a complex one.
    Honestly, I would like to spend my money on a bottle of scotch, rather than buying one of these.
    These should stay in the barrel for longer maturation.
    Between these two bottle, I prefer the 2020 more than the 2019.

    For drinking, these worth to try, but I don’t think it is worth to buy.

    2020 taste like an irish after 4 months
