  3. wheatfield scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Light straw pour. Nose is typical Irish indie from this era -- nectarine skin, canned fruits, essential oils (lemon), herbal, and a whiff of alcohol. Mouth is hot upfront, but I just opened the bottle so it's expected. More concentrated oils and stone fruits. Quite hot. Lots going on, not one of the sweeter ones and rather more about these highly concentrated waxes, citrus oils. Will adjust score when it opens more, but as always it very good.
