Was my very first Irish whisky at the time. A friend poured it blind to me. I swore it was some kind of first-fill bourbon middle-aged Balblair, but with less minerality and more honey. Turns out it was the beginning of a love story with Irish whiskey. This review is from my memories :P 

Taste

Drinks surprisingly easy for the proof, great alcohol integration. Industrial banana sweets, liquid honey, pears, ... epitomical middle-aged Irish in retrospective, actually.

Finish

Sweet again, extremely honeyed, but soon some light bitterness at last. Still fruity.

Comments

Was a terrific bargain at the time, really good stuff when you're in the mood for honey+fruit turned to eleven, without getting any unnecessary complexity or roughness.

First very sweet. Pears on syrup and green banana. A clear grassy touch as well. Perhaps some pine forest. Then more vanilla and strangely a clean kind of alcohol that first wasn't there. That's normally the other way around. With water first more creamy caramel, but eventually fresher like green apple. 

Taste

Sweet apple, grass, banana foam candy, vanilla, peach dragees, pepper, caramel and a touch of raspberry. With water also caramel.

Finish

Vanilla, caramel and an artificial fruitiness like banana and apple candy.

Comments

85/86.

Hyper fruité, frais, herbacé, et floral. De la pomme verte et jaune bien mûre, de la vanille. Un bouquet de petites fleurs jaunes. J’ai l’impression d’être dans une clairière après la pluie.

Taste

Du sirop de poire sucré. Mais vraiment, j’ai l’impression d’avoir du sirop en bouche ! Outre la poire, plein de fruits blancs juteux (pèche blanche, nectarine bien mûre) et un peu de massepain. Pas complexe, mais doux et très agréable en bouche. L’alcool est parfaitement intégré.

Finish

Moyenne. Pelure et zestes de fruits. Légère amertume. Petits picotements boisés.

Comments

Très équilibré, une corbeille de fruits blancs mûrs. C’est très agréable à boire, frais, facile d’accès. Le nez et la bouche me plaisent particulièrement ; la finale un peu moins.
