    1st tasting: A nose a little closed, dusty cellar, but I like that. A mouth of sherry, but a final less clumsy than the equivalent scotch, picotante. Off the beaten path.
    2nd tasting: nose rich in red fruits, hazelnuts, nose, chocolate, hazelnuts and powerful wood in the mouth. final long enough for an irish

  4. Defeatless scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Sweet and fruity. A Little cereal. Hint of almond spice and marzipan. A little wood is also there, and together with some toffee and vanilla it makes it a primarily bourbon matured whiskey.

    Taste:
    Sweet and easy arrival. Some toffee, some fudge. Overall quite sweet and a hint of sherry in the background. A little delicate

    Body:
    This should have been done without chill-filtration. Now it is a bit weak.

    Finish:
    Medium length. Here comes some of the sherry maturation. It gives some nice red fruit and quite a dose of raisins. After that it is overtaken by some bourbon vanilla and toffee.

    Price:
    Nowaday's rather cheap. If you can find one around €50,- you should buy.

    Presentation:
    Don't know this was a sample

  6. Okto-Bull scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Typical Irishman with its artificial fruit notes in the nose. I like this. The taste is unfortunately a bit on the track. But the finish is better. Nevertheless, nothing, what I need as a large bottle. After the complete WSD I fix it to 84. It gets a bit too stinging over time, alcoholic although it has only 40%.

    • Nose
      Gleich zu Beginn kommt einem der intensive Sherry- und Portweincharakter entgegen. Später zeigen sich noch Aromen von Nüssen, dunklem Trockenobst und trockenem Getreide. Zum Ende hin zeigt sich eine für 40% vol. ungewöhnliche alkoholische Schärfe.
    • Taste
      leicht süß und geschmeidig; es dominieren intensive Weintöne. Etwas Karamell und Marzipan begleiten den Geschmack.
    • Finish
      Der Abgang ist wieder trocken. Mittellang und warm; etwas malzig mit wieder anhaltend dominierenden Weinnoten
