    • Nose
      Rich, creamy vanilla, and some sweet brown spices (cardamom, cinnamon,
      all-spice). A cool melange of fruit - pear, sauteed apples, bananas, and
      tropical fruits (melons, too). There's a sweet marshmallow quality,
      probably from the rising vanilla. There is some wood in it, providing a
      good base. With more time, a bit of cocoa, toffee, and orange in the
      background. Slightly sweet rice pudding.
    • Taste
      Soft and a little silky on entry. Hrm. Surprising bite from the wood --
      bitter with a touch of dryness. A pinch of pepper serving up the
      alcoholic bite. The wood has vanilla and slowly yields to the fruit. The
      mid-palate brings a good transition to the fruit. Mango, apricot, sweet
      pears, bananas, apples, and more "melon." Very fruity, but not a bomb,
      and the sweet creaminess of the vanilla reminds me of a rich milkshake.
    • Finish
      More of the same, really. Medium-length finish. Never too sweet or
      fruit, just a real pleaser. The wood came out a bit strong on the
      palate, but it's a minor gripe.

    Wonderful and full body. This is in a new box, looks like some kind of carbon fiber type display. It is one of the best Irish Whiskey`s I have had.
