Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Rich butterscotch is the first note, coupled with stem ginger and creamy notes which balance out an oaky tone. Very well-balanced and lively, with notes of apricot jam.
Palate: A rich palate of peach melba, malt biscuits, hints of sea salt caramel and a back palate of lemon thyme, lime juice and clove.
Finish: Strong and long, this gives a lot of caramel and oak notes which linger well.
Comment: Far more robust than most Irish whiskeys.
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Dense, full and fleshy with apricot, honey and smoke. Well-balanced with some sweet grain making an appearance with time.
Palate: Crisper and more grain focused, but the grain has a delightful sweetness and fills out the palate in the absence of any malt character. Hints of honey, apricot and citrus on the middle.
Finish: Medium, sweet and grainy but some crisper grain notes add a bit of bite and spice.
Comment: Someone has paid attention to the grain here – it feels more like a vatted grain. It’s still very enjoyable.
