Moreover, this one offers quite a different experience from other Irish, never giving out fresh fruits but actually all kinds of sweet products made thereof : liqueurs, syrups, pastes, yoghurts, ... Interesting, and super pleasurable.
Apricot yoghurt from my childhood, big big time. You know, the ones that do not actually taste like real apricots but like ... well, themselves. With that, come various fruity syrups, whit a blissful spontaneity : mango, Cointreau, mandarine, Batida de Coco ... creamy, sweet, fruity and liqueur-ish Irish, excellent. White chocolate, fresh cream, and some cold coffee that might hint at the very shy sherry influence. This rather "western" and above all very creamy profile makes it actually quite different from the more juicy/exotic Irish, which is a good thing on a variety point-of-view. It's actually very Littlemill-like, if you want. While we wait, some light pepper settles down, and later on it exploded in a high-proof Mint Julep. Again, with a realism of flavour that is just fascinating.
Bang. Again, what a spontaneity. Granted, it's certainly not the most complex thing out there but boy ... Sweet fruit pastes arrows one after the other, strangely beginning with some red ones ! Cherry is very clear, so is raspberry. A few seconds later, it shifts back on more traditionnal mango and mandarine. Slight leafy - minty touch at the end again, like a signature.
Marschino cherries indeed, then the same apricot yoghurt as before but now with real, fleshy peaches, again with some stunning precision of flavour. Slightly leafy again. Medium length, but does the job perfectly.
