    Tropical fruits from nose to finish, definitely one of the best Irish malts I have had the chance to try

  3. LordShadow did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This is one of the best Irish Whiskys I've tried so far.
    But the best thing on this bottle is the absolut hilarious misprint on the Label.

    Solid Irish. Could take a little more body.
    • Nose
      Soft aroma, very fresh and youthful, but perfumed from time to time. The basic note is kräutrig-spicy-mentholig (sage), quite typical of Irish malts. Add vanilla, honey, caramelized biscuit, cheese quark cake and creme brulee. 44 points
    • Taste
      Very fine oiliness, thin streaks on the glass. Spicy, peppery onion (white pepper, ginger), dry-sweet with lots of citrus, hard caramel, freshly processed wood and honey. Creamy texture, kräutriger middle part. Also known here from Irish barrels. 43 points.
    • Finish
      Long, fiery-spicy, a little vanilla and citrus.
