Kind of the Irish equivalent to the Ardmore 12 y.o. Port Wood Finish in terms of character and price-to-performance ratio.
Solid sipping whiskey, perhaps a bit too weak for the advanced cohort.
Banana puree, a few wild berries, rotting autumnal leaves, wet soil, manure, herbal/earthy "mainland peat" (rather then the maritime variety).
A bit thin but nicely spicy and juicy from the mid-palate onwards. Pretty sweet and creamy throughout. Herbal, mildly peppery peat smoke meets strawberry and raspberry yoghurt.
Pretty long and nicely dusty, with sweet-and-sour strawberry notes. Not too shabby, I'd say.
