Tasting notes
Taster   Peter Mulryan
Nose: The very Irish nose tweak of resin, sherry and linseed.
Palate: Fat and oily. Layers of satin ginger, silk honey and hints of spicy liquorice.
Finish: Vanilla pods and marsala.
Comment: This is what real pure pot still whiskey is all about, a glorious contradiction of soft fruit and firm grain, oily seeds and sweet wood. World beating stuff.
9.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Intense and full blooded. Pot still richness: citrus oils, hot sealing wax, leather, tobacco, tea, maraschino, overripe fruits, marzipan. Exemplary.
Palate: Ridiculously big. Oozes into the mouth and erupts. Spices galore to the finish. Oily and unctuous.
Finish: Long, rich, oily.
Comment: Whiskey covering the entire spectrum of aroma, taste, feel, flavour. World class.
