- gentle, well balanced, fruity and some smoke giving some backbone to this wonderful dram. highly recommended
- http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=198 Color: straw yellow
Nose: Thin, slightly unstructured flavor with low spiciness at the beginning. Vanilla, leather, lime, mango and papaya, but all discreet, as well as the accompanying honey sweetness. Subordinated then caramel and wheat bran, fresh white toast with wafer-thin jam. Not bad, just kept pretty decent.
Taste: Soft, round and too sweet for our taste ! Too much sugar instead of honey sweetness, little fruit (lime and grapefruit), but again a lot of caramel, but again little spice. Tart herbs accompany the taste, and after the sweetness dies down, the peaty smoke first appears.
Finish: Medium long - spicier and now with leather notes, grapefruit, creamy vanilla and some cream. Fresh mint picks up the finish.

- Beautifully balanced tropical fruit and smoke. Wonderful dram.
Tropical fruit city: kiwis, passion fruit, like a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Strawberry tart. A waft of delightfully subtle smoke.
The fruits remain strong, a little additional grapefruit adds some mild bitterness. Smoked tinned pineapple. Hints of old Bowmore in this. Water brings out some cream - strawberries and cream?
Medium length, great balance of fruit and lingering smoke.
- There is no photo, it's good and fine; Very well done. Peat is discreet and delicate. I still miss some feelings for this whisky is '' waouw ''.
Indeed, it is peaty. But it's very far from being the big peat comes in that stains. Here it is fine, chiseled, lemony, light and rather discreet; while still having a certain presence. She gets married with mainly fruits, apricots and pineapples.
It is fleshy, mellow. Fruit compote is essential. Yet here I find peat almost non-existent. Small spicy tingling on the tongue.
Long. A fruity dryness settles at his ease. A slight dry, salty smoke passes away.
- I am tempted to call
this Connemara, but it is so fruity that it might as well be a Bushmills that
matured on an Islay cask. Who can tell? Whatever the case, it is fantastic and
rightfully praised. With a price tag of 180 EUR, it is unfortunately not for
It is indeed peaty,
but soft. I get more fruit than peat, which is no surprise in this case. It is
Irish after all. The fruit translates into banana, pineapple and lime. Hints of
white wine. Some earthy notes as well. Honey, vanilla and a touch of oak suggest
a bourbon cask.
It is quite oily on
the palate. Fresh start on all kinds of tropical fruit. Yes, I also get some
passion fruit, mandarin and mango on licquorice that results in a drying
effect. The peat is more pronounced and develops some smoke, but the dram does
not lose its fresh fruitiness. That freshness is probably also due to a bit of
mint. Quite nice!
The finish is
wonderfully long, warm and spicy, but remains fruity until the death.
