    [August, 2017]  Another blind sample and nice stuff, again!  Wonderful fruity like a walk across a tropical market.  All imbedded in a sweet maltiness and appropriate wooden structure (that turns a little drying at the finish).  The texture is rather light and hence the mouthfeel and finish not the greatest.  But both the nose and taste compensate this easily.

    Given these characteristics it was not that difficult to guess an Irish dram.  A charming one, for sure...

  6. MrRancho scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Unbelievable, this blend of tropical fruits and the salty, meaty bouillon. Blank.
    • Nose
      Gooseberry, mango, papaya, lychee, behind it some grass, the alcohol is a bit 'wild'
    • Taste
      Strong alcohol - I have to dilute properly - wood, cocoa, and then come ... Flädlesuppe! I swear!
    • Finish
      Medium length, nutty, and strong with beef stock.

  7. Hare&Copper scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Big tropical fruit - mango, papaya - which just grows and grows. Sandalwood. A little something like rosemary and thyme. Turns leafier after a while too. Some red and black berry fruits with water.
    • Taste
      Equally hugely fruity and spicy. Lots of grapefruit, blood oranges, and oriental woods (sandal and cedar). Wood spice slightly overpowers the fruit after a while. Water doesn't change much - maybe brings out some dryness.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Fruity again. A little drying.

    Color: golden yellow
    Nose: A successful mix of ripe, cooked fruits such as yellow apple, orange, papaya and some fruit gum. Aromas of leather, toffee, salty spices and heavy smoke, which are covered with lots of honey.
    Taste: Thin and soft, starting with sweet honey notes, which, however, quickly counteract fresh and spicy mint flavors. The taste becomes unbalanced and a bit confusing. Then quite tart garden herbs are added, which dominate the taste in combination with heavy, peaty smoke. To the finish becoming increasingly bitter, but without striking wood shares.
    Finish: Medium to long - quite bitter based on fennel and too long drawn herbal tea. With dry smokes and some ash / soot decaying.
    Note: This combination of sweetness, fresh pungency and bitter herb rail does not match our feelings - but: great nose!
    86 points (nose: 91 / taste: 83 / finish: 83)
