  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    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.

  6. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    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.

  7. 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

  10. Archer scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    No own brand of West Cork yet. The barrels are likely to be from Cooley, so that compared to bottlings of other Irish distilleries, which also buy foreign barrels and bring as single malt on the market, barely significant differences.
    • Nose
      Floral, flowery-fresh, grassy base - there Cooley was at work. From the rum finish is not much to sniff, the initial maturity is too dominant.
    • Taste
      On the tongue, the reflection of the nose shows: honey-sweet and floral. Again, a strong note of grass or fresh hay. Now something of the rum finish appears. After a while come bitter herbs.
    • Finish
      In the rather short finish comes some grape sweetness and some oak. It ends with slightly bitter herbs.
