- Ruben found some words: https://www.whiskynotes.be/2017/irish-whisky/irish-malt-1989-whisky-faessle-nectar/
- I just wish there was no rum in this, because seriously, it's not necessary when the base material's quality is so obvious.
Sure the classic exotic profile behind it is typically enjoyable, although slightly muted by alcohol, but this big cheap rum note of permanent marker / banana-scented bleach is just ruining it for me. Granted, I'm partial towards rum maturation in whisky, so take my score with a grain of salt. But if you're like me generally allergic to rum in whisky, this is not the one that's gonna change your mind.
Had little time with it though, and the bottle was just opened, so maybe with more time and aeration the profile becomes better integrated.
