      Rich tropical fruits as expected. Sugar apples, mango, ripe red papaya, almost no sourness. Pollen, sticky premium honey. Then develops into cookies, Scottish shortbread, butter, almond. Fruit leaves, blood oranges flesh and dried vanilla. Orange and light hay from emptied glass.

      Not so sweet mango with a touch of the mango skin. Grassy, pollen, fresh black pepper. Light citrus zest with some citrus sourness, a bit more oily after chew. Not much change tbh as you would expect from the excellent nosing.

      A bit of bitter papaya skin, pepper, cinnamon. A thin layer of orange juice. Tannin at the end.

    An Irishman (again) to fall in love with! Very nice maturity and complex. I recognize both fruit and floral components and a lot of freshness. Everything looks very harmonious and complex, none of the components is oversized (which I think is good). One of the best Irish guys in recent years!

    Recognizable as Irish on the nose, typical but subtle. Sweetly tingly in the mouth, complex, mild & soft. Alcohol involved very well. Nice finish with a long aft key. Light vanilla, more of a mild Irish, but overall a very high level.

  8. Montijo scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    Served in the glass, it is a basket of fresh tropical fruits and vegetables. Subsequently it fades to go to ripe fruit. A point of green melon for freshness a zest of star fruit skin for bitterness. We finish with yellow kiwi, melon, pineapple and a slightly citric finish. It's long, round, delicious.
