    Dried fruits, apples, sweet, oak cask notes on taste. 

    Long finish with spices, oak cask, apples and vanilla notes.

  2. 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.

    Tip: Redbreast? Must be an Irishman in any case. Very soft and balanced. But in the end again with strength. The 12 of RB I have in the closet and he is actually one of my favorite Irish and he comes here very close!

    Nose: Sweet nose, to my liking, some peach, caramelcream, some hard candy. there is a waxy nose in there, like in Clynelish.

    Taste: sweet, gentle, oily, nutty,

    Body: nice thick and oily.

    Finish: medium: Light bitter tones, followed by some oak notes.

    Price: a little expensive

    Presentation: Decent classic look.
