Tasting notes
Taster   Peter Mulryan
Nose: Leather handbags, new car smell. Seville oranges and dusk in Valencia.
Palate: I have died and gone to heaven. Warm oily spice, cardamom, cinnamon and some damn fine sherry notes.
Finish: Rumbles on for ages. Tickling pepper and milk chocolate.
Comment: For the money, this is the best damn blend you will ever, ever taste.
9.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Lush and rich. Some oily pot still notes. Ripe fruit, melon, spices, oak notes, charcoal, some raisin/sultana. With water: cocoa butter, tea cake.
Palate: Clean and slightly malty start. Stretches across the palate. Semi-dried peach softness, crisp cereal/oak. Balanced, honeyed and soft.
Finish: Herbal.
Comment: Much more like it. Has the rich, velvety, juicy, fruitiness of good Irish.
