My first Irish whisky! A step aside from Scotch, with a peculiar and complex wood combination from wine casks, that’s already clear from the fruity and floral nose.
Taste reveals crispy and a bit spicy, yet with some vanilla sweetness and pleasant crispy cereal notes. Once the initial fruity flavours fade, hints of fresh grass, chocolate and liquorice prevail, leaving a smooth finish, balanced between oak and slightly sour/sweet (white) wine lingering finish.
Of course I can't have many comparisons, but surely it's goodquality for the price.
