    Nice Irish one, accessible, fresh and pleasant aroma's and flavours.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Fresh and fruity, apples, some citrus, furniture polish. Also some earthy tones, an autumn forest after a rainshower. Later on sweet, vanilla cake.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet, fresh and fruity. Vanilla, citrus, apples, again these sort of earthy tones. Slightly pungent, pretty full taste.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Still a little pungent, fruity and sweet, some honey, citrus. Middlelong finish, still some feeling of a moisterous autumn forest.

  6. Jean Ginster scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    I like it. I think these potstills from Ireland have a typical intense fruity spiciness.
    • Nose
      fruity, yellow fruits, with caramel and vanilla. Intensive. Direction pear, quince, with a fairly pronounced spiciness.
    • Taste
      first sweet, then fruity, quince and mint with a sweet intensive seasoning. Some lemon mixed with vanilla.
    • Finish
      medium. it leaves the oak spice with a slight fruity sweetness, with mint.

    Very fine Irishman.
    • Nose
      Very rich fruity nose, sweet fruit, tropical fruits like pineapple, mango, peach. A touch of vanilla underneath.
    • Taste
      Soft, fruity taste. Small bitterness in the background. Rich and full.
    • Finish
      Beautiful, full, creamy finish. Medium.

  9. Allandale scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Different and much better than the 12. years. 46% is better.
    • Nose
      Aromas of fruit compote, cinnamon and clove. A good clean streak running through it, but the rich spiciness  dominates.
    • Taste
      A touch drier than expected, with austere peppery spice, making its presence felt, but sweetened up with spicy oak and fresh apple and mango.
    • Finish
      Dry peppery and spicy.

  10. Goethe scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Here you have the Irish thick character from the single Pot Still.

    Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10
    • Nose
      Sweet fruity sherry. Berries (gooseberry, blackberry), apples, caramel, raisins, roasted almonds.
    • Taste
      Sweet fruity sherry again. Berries cooked and stewed. Some leather way in the back.
    • Finish
      Medium. Red and dark fruit gums. Some vegetables in the back.
