    Surprisingly tasty whiskey, discovered on Whiskey Weekend Twente. Maybe I'll consider buying a bottle of this again.
    • Nose
      Delicious sweet scent, vanilla, also a rubbery smell, banana too
    • Taste
      Very smooth, nice round taste, soft and sweet, vanilla again and also some banana
    • Finish
      Medium, sweet and full.

  7. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Not bad at all, tastes less Irish than expected.
    • Nose
      Spicy, perfumed, violet or something floral, a slight touch of resin and some gum. In sum, rather sweet. I do not notice rum.
    • Taste
      Strong, spicy, sweet, cereals, citrus, some rum.
    • Finish
      Pepper, cereals, a little gum, a little dry.

  8. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Nose very nice, taste OK (I'm not a rum finish fan, but here it works - there's nothing biting), price with 37 € so far OK.
    • Nose
      fresh, fruity, floral - honeydew melon, some haribo, roses, a touch of violets (roughly from the memory - now you would better know with flower scent ;-)), vanilla, later sweeter, caramel, cane sugar
    • Taste
      a lot of vanilla, brown sugar, slightly burnt, some bitter-bitter lime, a distinct tart rum note, then pepper and dark chocolate
    • Finish
      medium in length, sweet in a slightly bitter direction, some milk chocolate, a bit spicy
