Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Clean, fresh. hint of linseed. Nuts. Cake.
Palate: By far the biggest of this selection. Assertive and complex, with lots of development and seemingly infinite dimension. Ginger cake, brazil nuts, treacle.
Finish: Liquorice-like sherry notes.
Comment: Delicious, soothing, contemplative. A great whiskey. Makes me want to get on a plane to Dublin immediately.

Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: With Green Spot, the most impressive of Irish noses. There's a fruity, almost rye-like quality, and deft, honeyed sweetness, a touch of sherry, cream soda vanilla and some peppery notes. Breathtaking.
Palate: The flavours take off in all directions. Spiciness and a pot still backbone softened by sherry. Very firm with some toffee.
Finish: Oily, some liquorice and enormous sweet-sour complexity. Spicy and long.
Comment: Not quite perfect, but still an astonishing experience.
