- On the nose, wonderful juicy grapes but which also tend a little towards botrytisation, very sweet. It evokes a Madeira finish. In the mouth, we find these aromas with a frank attack, despite the 40 ° only, pretty subtle spices. The finale evokes the same impressions. There is not much evolution but everything is here in the pleasure of simplicity and a dram at once very accessible but very generous. Sorry, but it's too good ! Enthusiasm 5/5
- is unmistakably from Bushmills, similar to the 10 year old, a little more complex, but overall flat, nice whisky for summer afternoons
very sweet, fresh pears, a splash of lemon, wine gum, candy cane
very soft and restrained, sweet, fruit cocktail
nice fruity, with some oak, here you notice him at least 13 years, but fades quite fast
- This was a surprise off my wife, it wasn't a whisky I was asking for but I have heard about it and it's reputation, so my expectations were high. A very pleasant whisky that went down easy but it wasn't as good as I thought it was going to be.
- This was a Christmas present off my wife. A nice well balanced dram.
A light sweet nose of Caramel and toffee, some white chocolate in there and lots of honey. Some grassy notes come through and there is also hints of peach and white grapes.
The taste is also light and sweet, almost of a good white wine. Very pleasant, swill around your mouth and you get green apples, white chocolate and some ripe melon.
The finish is a little disappointing, medium to short with a bit of peach at the death.
- The dryness of the finale is not too much my thing, otherwise this profile very fresh and very fruity, balanced and very easy to access make this whisky an ideal candidate for an aperitif.
A great freshness of spring flowers. A very very slight salinity (which disappears quickly). Fresh fruit just out of the fridge (banana, pear, apple, grapefruit). Green tea from China.
A salad of yellow and white fruits, with some quarters of bitter grapefruit. The reduction feels, but does not bother; it is not watery. The freshness of green tea is still present.
The fruity bitterness asserts itself more. Some spicy spices, and the herbaceous tea dries out the mouth quite well.
