    good Irish nose, well, you know what I mean, the taste is rather strong, very, but it is IMHO. In general, it is very interesting and worthy!

    (57% Version)

    N- A walk through the new lay malt floor with hint of grains. A lovely breakfast dram with fresh baked Muffin with dried cherry, raisin and berries chocolate. As well the broad honey and generous fruits rising, orange, pear and all sorts. Subtle smokes in the middle, with heavier notes of tar, lemon caramel and nose melting strength at the lower layer. At almost the same strength as the excellent NAS, effect of aged are felt with the quietessential mellowness and calmness, elegant and characterful. (92/23)

    P- With extra aging, this offers a different spectrum compared to the NAS. More woody as it should be with dry coal fire around the nose, floral knocking, so the liquorice, vanilla, maple, as well the honey from the toasted oak. Semi spicy popping candy to excites. (92/23)

    F- Long, pleasantly dry mouthfeel, soft and velvet with notes of subtle smoked meat. Hint of polish and elegantly spicy. (91/22)

    B/B- 96/24

    Cereal- 3, Fruity- 2, Floral- 2, Peaty- 1, Feint- 1, Sulphur- 0, Woody- 3, Winery- 2

    Weighted Rate- 92pt, NAS may be marginally better, but both are equally excellent.
