      Doesn't have that bright bouquet like some other Irish. A bit closed.

      Superb balance. Thick texture. A beautiful, fruity Irish. No faults at all. Wish I have a bottle of this in the bunker!

  9. u485tfu scored this whisky 95 points Expert Junior

    Wonderfully sweet and exotic, peaches, nectarines, apricots: mouthfeel like alcoholised jam, creamy, sweet, divine nectar.

    The sweet taste but harmonic not exaggerated, also fresh notes, no bitterness, very intense, complex perception.

    Note: 95P
