Nose: First impression - a bourbon in the first, "artificially" held part: glue, floor wax, furniture polish, turpentine and paint, then the percentage predominantly "more natural" part with tender, sweet honey aromas, marzipan and cereals. Now heavily burgeoning wood-laden aromas of dry boards. In addition, rubber, leather (saddlebag) and penetrating tart orange peel and again and again the interplay between the artificial and natural part. Very interesting!
Taste: Oily, super-strong wood-turpentine-mint-herbal-floor polish cocktail with leather, orange peel and infinitely bitter, sweet and herbal infusions - with almost 70% a hammer blow.
Finish: Super long - with mint leading and as in the nose: Artificiality against naturalness! Towards the end becoming sweeter with more herbs in peppery broth. The last lasting impression: bitter mint in combination with oak.
Comment: What an Irishman! The nose does not notice the almost 70%, but on the tongue it hits like a grenade. Due to the constant changes between artificial and natural notes very difficult to evaluate. We are at 90 points - but what an aromatic enrichment !!!
90 points (nose: 92 / taste: 90 / finish: 88)
