    A very enjoyable dram. Pour, set aside for 15 minutes to half an hour, then have a go at it. Big, but not overwhelming, sweet, but not too much (though maybe borderline for some) and not too wine- or cask-forward, supporting the light Irish base distillate. Not cheap at about 120€/110GBP retail price, but it is really good!

    Scent intensity: (7)
    Tonality: ( 5-6 )
    At the top, there are some green alcohol feelings... 1
    Light and cool...1
    A little bit of water chestnut is not quite like 46% of the sweetness of the performance, not moderately rich yellow fruit ripeness... 4
    But there is always a sapling of raw wooden nuts...3
    Some baked cakes on the bottom layer are sprinkled with spices... 2
    Entrance aroma: (5)
    Strength: (5)
    Tonality: (7)
    End rhyme: (6)
    The influence of the Pineaus des Charantes barrels is more pronounced. The rounded baking dessert & cocoa butter & baking wood is sharp but the tail has a rounded wood and some bitterness.
    Total: ( 86 )
    Pineaus des Charantes barrels are quite rare. The aroma of the mouth can be said to be rich but unfortunately some of the prominent elements feel uncoordinated.

    Well, can't believe in the omnipotent Revival Series this is remembered as the GOOD ONE.

    Not really easy to drink due to its overwhelming sulphur-like smells, not typical Pineau des Charentes, not typical Cooley either. It contains some sting you could encounter with pineapples. Tropical, fruity yet fortified-y, but seriously overrated by sherry lovers.

    Unfortunately, this is a little stinker. Think Fred Flinstones cold feet after bringing his car to a ful stop. Some of it goes away with airing, but it remains dusturbing to me. Wonder if they Treat Pineau Cask with sulphur candels or if the distillation was not quite 100%.

    Presentation's rating is just balancing the price's rating : of course the presentation is simply stunning.

    Excellent. The whisky version of the pear Oïkos yogurth if that rings a bell. That kind of creamy, full and oddly mature fruitiness is actually getting very hard to find below 100€ among Scotch, just saying.
    • Nose
      Prototypical middle-aged Irish with western, green fruits instead of tropical ones (so rather greengages, plums, apples), but with an obnoxious layer of creamy pears on top of that. Rather simple, but extremely pleasure-focused and full. Some slight pastry sides as well, which is just another trademark of these still quite young Irish.
    • Taste
      More of the same, rather a bit more Liqueurish on Willam's Pear, and a nice malty, dough-y dryness again. Great texture, great proof, the Pineau is indeed quite unmistakable but works perfectly in this context.
    • Finish
      No so long, granted, but no off notes either. Creamy, pear-ish again, with mirabelles.
