  1. Malthead19 scored this whisky 71 points Connoisseur

    - taste improvement to the standard and crested
    - Still, all in all, still average
    - couldn't really convince for 30 € at the time
    • Nose
      slight, barely noticeable odor, sweetish vanilla and oak notes, light vanilla and sweet fruits (peach)
    • Taste
      clear oak, fruit, vanilla, subtle sherry, one-dimensional
    • Finish
      short, soft finish;
      Oak and sweetness in the aftertaste, gone very quickly

  2. larswehmeier scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Immediately very sweet and mild. Vanilla sugar. Dough. It smells like baking cookies. In addition a very slight bittersweet note of almonds. No alcohol noticeable.
    • Taste
      Very mild mouthfeel. Sweet and round. Then slowly spicy and bitter. Oak. Almonds. Chocolaty.
    • Finish
      Rather short but long sweet.

    A perfect example of "drinking" whiskey. Drink imperceptibly and with great pleasure, do not get drunk!
    It is advisable to use within 1.5-2x weeks, after opening the bottle, because very quickly exhaled.
    • Nose
      Port wine; tobacco; vanilla sweetness; butter cream
    • Taste
      Tobacco; bourbon notes; woody aftertaste
    • Finish
      Chokeberry mountain ash; cherry; bitterness of cranberry leaves; knits heavily

  4. BottleBox scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    The best long Irish whiskey I could taste
    • Nose
      Fresh, sweet, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, toffee, candied plum, plum dumplings, decanted butter
    • Taste
      Delicate, supple, velvet soft, reflects the whole range of the nose again. Caramel and a kind of creamy taste join after adding some water.
    • Finish
      Long and delicate. With water creamy left on the tongue.

  6. Wtrstrnghlt scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Rich, sweet and floral. Fresh oak. then a bit of aceton or paint, like stained wood.

    Taste: Light. Sweet, sugary. A bit of pepper.

    Finish: Sweet, super easy and fairly short. Some bitter oak.

    OK whiskey for this kind of money

  7. wheatfield scored this whisky 77 points Expert Junior

    Medium gold pour. Nose is sweaty, vanilla, some pureed stone fruit, something light vegetal. Mouth is dominated by vanilla and over-ripe peach, something musty/sweaty. Not particularly interesting but drinkable. Not as jagged and rough as the standard white label. Doesn't deserve a ton more analysis than this.
