However, this 8yo Irish Whiskey, called Inaugural Release, is not yet our own whiskey, because the distillery is only just about to be completed.
Very tasty, as it is very balanced, because neither the grain content (it's a blend) nor the finish are in the foreground.
Fruity nose with fresh apricots, tangerines and peaches. Accompanied by honey and vanilla, a malty note shimmers through (from the stout barrel?). Yellow apple studded with cloves.
Sweet start with candied fruits, caramel, vanilla and honey. Slightly dry, pleasantly strong, malty. the sweet fruit notes slowly recede into the background and give way to spices, caramel and milk chocolate.
Medium length, dry, only slightly fruity, malty, a hint of pepper and grated nutmeg.
