Expert Junior Snerik Tasting note

Snerik gave this whisky 85 points
Color
Pale gold
Nose

Okay, apples and pears. Nothing new here. But some burnt suger, and vanilla? Hmm, like smelling a crème brûlée, which I find as a good thing. It’s very “Irish”, but it’s on steroids. And milk chocolate. 

Taste

Dry, fruity. A lot from the nose just disappears in my opinion? It gets oilier, less direct fruit. 

Finish

Long finish, with vanilla, chocolate and a hint of minerals in the back. Banana, apples, but in a dry, not in a “superficial” way. I find it very pleasant. It’s kind of straight forward, but well, in a good way.

Comments

This is very “Irish” in the sense that there’s a lot of Irish whisky notes within this whisky (DUH?) but there’s so much more power behind it. I had mine with water, and from what I can read here in the comment section; maybe I should have avoided that.

Specialist alectron Tasting note

alectron gave this whisky 84 points
Color
Gin clear
Nose

quite aggressive alc on the nose, white chocolate & vanilla, apricots, fresh oak staves, wood glue, (weak) dry black tea, (85-87)
W water:  fresher/cooling nose feel, but much less flavour, most of the sweet ones seem to be gone, wood & a bit of glue is the only remains, strange. (78)

Taste

nice white chocolate & vanilla, oak spices, a few yellow fruits and some gummy bears (87)
W water:  oilier, more dominating wood, but not extreme as the nose & sweet notes remain, even got a bit more complex on the fruit, some red berries now as well (87)

Finish

fairly long, a tad spirit-y, still white chocolate & vanilla, more wood spices now, also a nice pastry note (w caramelized walnuts?) (85)
W water:  grain-ier than before, somewhat raisin-y (pine) as well (85)

Comments
Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...

Willie JJ gave this whisky 83 points
Color
Old gold
Nose

Intense, floral, very clean, fruitier with water, perhaps a little grassy. 

Taste

Tightly closed, sweet. Water brings some ashy sherbet. More water lightens it further and gives it more sparkle. 

Finish

Short at full strength, but gets longer every time you add a couple of drops of water.

Comments

I wish I had more of this to play with. Its a lot of fun

It's better to have drunk it all than never to have drunk at all.

markjedi1 gave this whisky 90 points
Color
Pale gold
Nose

A very stout nose on baked banana, drenched in caramel. Creamy! A lot of spices, to many to name, enriching the nose tremendously. It literally makes my mouth water. Fairly straightforward, but oh so good!

Taste

It explodes on the palate. Vanilla, milk chocolate, preserved fruit, grain and quite some oak. Thanks to the cask strength, it is very spicy with hot chili and woodspice in the lead. Again very creamy with a large dose of caramel and toffee. Boy, this is so enjoyable. Not overly complex, but who cares when a whiskey is that good?

Finish

The finish is very long, very sweet and spicy. Vanilla and caramel linger a long time.

Comments

I already enjoyed the Redbreast at drinking strength, but this is extremely nice. Around 65 EUR, although I have not seen it around in Belgium too much. Recommended!
