Presentation is worth more than that, I just wanted to give a great price score since I had mine for 74€.

Back to it now that I've got a proper bottle. Very fruity and emblematic of these typical "middle-aged Irish" notes, so rather more western fruits than tropical ones though banana is the main one. But apples and pears aren't far away. Alcohol is not a problem so far. Gets more flowery with time, adding new fruity tones with time like some citrus element. Some white chocolate at times, and quite some dry barley. It's not as glamourous and opulent / perfumy than other Irish, somewhat straighter.

Taste

I remember why I thought it was more "virile and dry" than these usually are : alcohol might play a role in that but indeed, it's not the "easy peasy" kind with truckloads of honey and apple compote right away (like in this one : https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/58978/ireland-2000-dd). There's actually a good deal of white pepper and lime skin, making it, yeah, straighter. But the fruits haven't disappeared. Banana, pears, but after some aeration some more complex fruits show up like pineapple, pomgrenate maybe, and even a flowery side with orange blossom. It's quite malty as well generally speaking. Alcohol integration could be better at that stage.

Finish

Fruity, dry, peppery and even salty, with more citrus now but hints of spearmint and many other vegetal tones. Leafy.

Comments

A good, very good one indeed, and somewhat different given its drier caracteristics. Lacks some complexity and some better alcohol integration to go higher but hey, I grabbed my bottle by chance a month ago for 74€, and I still think it was really great bargain.

Thought it was a very nice take on exploiting the usual Irish fruitiness but with a somewhat virile, drier twist. Very good !

Superbes fruits exotiques avec quelques notes de poivre blanc, puis de chocolat. Plus tard, du malt bien en avant. Quelques gouttes d'eau aident à remettre les fruits sur le devant de la scène. En bouche, les fruits frais et exotiques dans toute leur fraîcheur. Aucune déception par rapport à l'annonce du nez. Belle consistance. Juste ce qu'il faut de sucré qui se prolonge dans la finale. Intégration alcoolique parfaite, au passage. 3cl, c'était pas assez !

Enthousiasme 5/5

Nose

Un Irlandais très reconnaissable, sur l'hyper fruité (abricot, banane, pêche, poire, et quelques gouttes de pamplemousse) juteux et le frais floral. Perso j'adore ce genre de nez, qui ici est bien riche, présent et puissant.

Taste

Dans la lignée du nez. Une corbeille de fruits sucrés et juteux. De la vanille et du miel par dessus ces fruits. Une très légère amertume de fruit en arrière plan. Des épices douces par pincées.

Finish

Moyenne. Les fruits juteux s'estompent et laissent la place à de la poussière de pollen et à du boisé délicat. Les épices douces s'endorment lentement.

Comments

Pas grand chose à dire, en fait, par rapport à la pelletée d'Irlandais qui sortent ces derniers mois. Une gourmandise de chaque instant, à savourer à son aise.
