  4. wheatfield scored this whisky 77 points Expert Junior

    Medium gold pour. Nose is light cereal grains, some light cream. Mouth is more spicy than expected up front, then soft grains, some grass. Feel is light and thin. Nice flavors going on but thin and a bit watered down.

  7. MaltyMillionaire scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    Punches way above its 40% ABV. 
    • Nose
      Lemon, pear, apricot, mild honey, berries. 
    • Taste
      Spun sugar, spice, lemon drops, pear. Spices build.
    • Finish
      Billowing spices and spun sugar with a note of lemon candy. 

  8. HunterRomario scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    It is not my blood group, but it is well patentable within Ireland.
    • Nose
      Typically an Irish perfume, as I know it, but fortunately, it's just a lighter and more tolerable form. Chocolate, mint, cinnamon, cloves, citrus, apples and pineapple. (83 b)
    • Taste
      Tongue soft, slightly sweet, sweet chocolate, with dried bananas and pungent spiciness. It is a bit sparse but quite pleasant. (83 b)

  10. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Warm and pastry with apples and almonds. Very light. In the mouth, soft and fluid, but pulling on the creamy, it lacks a little volume of aromas but it is very pleasant, even in the final, warm and very Irish in style. A nice surprise for a whiskey which I was expecting absolutely nothing. An excellent quality / price ratio.

    Enthusiasm 3/5
