    A quality Irish malt but not one of the better ones that came out recently. Honeyed ginseng with a touch of grassiness. There's also some tired oak in this.

    This Whisky was sold for 205€ at Whisky Auction (September 2017).

    Tasted blind: The nose does not express much, on the fruits but it is quite not perceptible. Not aggressive at all. No doubt reduced.
    On the palate it is fruity, acidic chemical type candy. An Irish, young, around 46 ° It's still not terrible. There is nothing else that comes to me.
    Short final always on this fruity acidulated and chemical. Not bad but the value for money is deplorable.

    It's good, we distinguish slightly the fruit, it is well done but it lacks a lot for a whisky of this price. Everything is set back, the nose discreet, the mouth erased and the short length.

  9. ThS scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Huge disappointment.
    • Nose
      The nose is fine, subtle, perhaps a little too much because it seems a little erased ... A lemony note clearly dominates with, in the background, malted barley. A little paraffin. Not much else ... I was clearly expecting something else. It's skinny.
    • Taste
      The palate is rather spicy, light, lean and slightly fruity (banana and ... green banana).
    • Finish
      Average. A tangy fruity note, strawberry syrup. A very slight bitterness.
