    Flavour is very pleasing. full of tropical fruits, yellow peach, papaya, and coconut, although not bursting like Fruit Bomb, but the faintly oozing sandalwood and woody make it more complex. And taste it is rich butter, malt sweetness, and a warm cake, the end with clean passion fruit & creme Brulee, surprise me.

    Young and well balanced, the fruit sweet are clean, and match with bakery and cake feeling, very soft and warm dram, so good.

    High quality stuff, it may even be worth 90 points. I'll decide after 2nd tasting. Excellent melange of tropical fruits, sweet, well balanced. Detailed description will follow ...

    Last glass on March 3rd, 2021 ... International Irish Whisky Day!

    Color: white wine

    A wonderful nose! Fruit compote, cereals, malt, fruit salad with tropical fruits, fruity marzipan. A meadow of flowers where cakes are served for picnics. Honey!

    Also easy to drink in cask strength, sweet, fruity, ripe fruits, orange peel, creamy, great melange of sweet and sour notes.

    Medium-long, warming finish with fruity sweetness and a bit of chilli heat.

    Great whisky!

    89 points, possibly 90 points for the scent of the empty glass!

    A little water and oxygen bring me sweet mirabelle plums and help to create an experience with a fruity Irish, which can already prove a certain degree of maturity. Very good.

      Should I believe the previous reviews or Should I believe Serge. I decided to believe Serge as his reviews are always rather relieable.

      well he could have warned us that this stuff attacks the nose like a hornet. water, please.

      yes , much better now. very easy to describe : fruit salad. cannot get out single fruits here but it ultra - fresh and clean and a belter of a summer´s whisky. really cannot understand what has been written here before!!!
    • Taste
      same feeling as on the nose. a bit like a fruit sorbet. some irish whiskies are to bourbonny for my taste. hooray, this one is not. a companion for hot days.
    • Finish
      medium to long, clean and fresh.

    Strange - first whiffs of rotten vegetables that turn more into cooked vegetables and on the palate a rather artificial fragrance and sweetness. Water doesn't help much. Drinkable but not really enjoyable.
    • Nose
      Cooked vegetables, green fruits, little citric
    • Taste
      Punchy, sweet, bubble gum, some cooked fruits, peaches
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, zesty

    straw color, nose a little alcoholic but otherwise not badly done, on yellow fruits and ripe fruit like melon. Powerful, alcoholic mouth, with an unpleasant cheap mountain plant eau-de-vie side. Correct length in the final, but unfortunately a lot of alcohol.
