    Actually a good one and pretty drinkable

      Lots of fresh green fruits, green apple, pear, green banana, lime, little leafy, fine grassy, little citric, hints of honey, whiffs of wet hay - really not bad
    • Taste

      Oily, fruity, subtle sweetness, a lot of liquorice, anise, old books, some apple and pear

    Still quite fresh with some nice exotic notes

    Short reminder:
    This is a pot still whiskey, not a blended whiskey.
    There's ZERO percent grain whiskey in this.

    A rare old - German import - bottle of Paddy which most likely dates from the late 1950s or early 1960s. It carries the name of James Murphy, but it doesn't have an age statement as the red band 10yo bottles of the same era. There is no statement of volume or alcohol strength either.

    This is fruity, slightly hot, some spice, honey and as the fruit develops there is a nice grapefruit & pineapple note.
    Its a lively one and frankly taste better than the NAS Irish blended I had last night x 6.
    I like the fruit note, worth looking out for at auction if you like, light fruity whiskey but I think there is probably a 50/50 split with the grain as the grain is not dominant.
    A nice blend, with good flavour and a decent nose
