Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Sherry so thick you can cut through it.
Palate: Gloriously fat and rich; delicious barley, intermingling with juicy plums. Big and sturdy throughout.
Finish: A peppery spice begins to formulate, as does the drier oak. But it is the softness of the grain which impresses most.
Comment: This is a great Irish whiskey where the faultless sherry is played and controlled to near perfection.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Creamy. Cedary. Fresh sweat. Aromatic.
Palate: Firm. Full flavours. Nutty. Very toffeeish. Apricot-like.
Finish: Spicy. Slight sulphur.
Comment: I find the aroma quite sexy. The palate is big, but the finish leaves me wondering about the casks.
