Nose

Grassy nose on heather, hay and honey with some nutmeg and loads of peach. Some caramel and quite some almonds. Banana and coconut. A hint of milk chocolate. Soft, approachable and pleasant, but most of all very Irish.

Taste

It is oily and sweet, but a touch sharp at first sip. Again that grassy character with the yellow fruit, but also some cappuccino and green tea. Toffee apples? Milk chocolate returns.

Finish

The medium long finish offers more milk chocolate, pepper and coconut.

Comments

Nice Irish, but fairly expensive for what you get with its price tag of around 75 EUR.

Nose

Apricots and ripe bananas, as well as a touch of cardboard. Some sweet grains and toffee too, followed by mild notes of milk chocolate and vibrant orange zest, with finally a whisper of aniseed.

Taste

Creamy and rich, this has that classic Irish pot still profile, with some cough syrup, menthol, dried red fruits, and bitter oranges. Of course a good amount of spiciness also, mainly nutmeg, pepper and clove. Some almonds too. Big-bodied.

Finish

Lingering spices, slightly herbal.

Comments

Big, bold, spicy. Exactly what I'd want from this style of whiskey.

wonderful bourbon notes, sweet, refined and aromatic, nice sherry, perfectly balanced, elegant and perfectly sweet, then suddenly a weird funk hits you, annoying and persistent, it’s more deterring than complementary to the bourbon and sherry

Nose

des fruits variés,exotiques et verts aussi (pomme,poire),de la cannelle,des bonbons acidulés avec ce côté artificiel,puis vanille et du boisé assez fin;suivi du malt presque à outrance!

Taste

mêmes senteurs avec une certaine lourdeur en bouche,peu épicé,on sent l'alcool au bout d'un moment!

Finish

simple ,mais assez longue sur ces arômes,le retour du bonbon acidulé reste dans le fond du verre.

Comments

que dire,par rapport à son petit frère,il développe plus de flaveurs et n'a pas la même douceur,mais les fruits multiples ressentis sont un plus indéniable!

A story of two halves: Pronounced sweet grains on the nose, well-balanced, deeper malts on the taste. Just as drinkable as its Green Spot cousin, but offering a very different Pot Still experience.

Le nez est globalement fruité mais il tarde à se révéler et est beaucoup moins appétissant que le Green Spot. La bouche est bien fruitée, fruits jaunes surtout (fruits exotiques ?). Les fûts de bourbon se révèlent en bouche tardivement mais avec autorité ! Mais où sont les fûts de sherry ? Peut-être dans cette note boisée mais trop verte pour un 12 ans et qui laisse une pointe d’agressivité à chaque gorgée et qui empêche la rondeur attendue (trop ?) de s’installer. Une finale par contre exceptionnellement longue centrée sur un fruit en particulier que je n’arrive pas encore à identifier. Je reste un peu sur ma faim. Je reste sur le Green Spot même si les deux whiskeys ont finalement assez peu en commun – étonnamment.

Enthousiasme 3/5

Middle long. The sweet spice persists after the soft fruit is gone.

Very appealing. Very easy drinking. Lovely.
