  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A light, mellow and good Irish single malt, but a bit too expensive!
    [Color gold;
    • Nose
      soft, gentle, fruity (peaches), noticeably vanilla, oak;
    • Taste
      very soft fruity onset, juicy ripe peaches, grapes, mild sherry aromas, nutty, supple, gentle, reminiscent of blend; [
    • Finish
      medium length finish; in the end: sherry, oranges;

  4. Igor scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Oak is looming gently, with coconuts, camphor and an odd acetone?/solventy note, quite some fruits there, full fruit basket, a touch of spray deodorant. Also some muscadine grapes, soft vanilla, melon, apricots and peaches.
    • Taste
      Very light, silky-smooth texture. Almond, sour, white grapes, pineapple juice, plum, pistachios, cream roll, lemon curd.
    • Finish
      Thaws off on wood chips, sawdust, saltiness, warmth, then all-embracing citric tingle, orange-/lemon zest, peanuts.
