Once again the nose offers up hope only for it to be dashed on the palate. It's not so much these are light, it is that they lack substance.
Aged Single Malt
No age statement
Republic of Ireland
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Plump and fleshy with apricot/pear and light liquorice. Coconut cream and some muscle.
Palate: Peachy once more, but thins quickly. Very light in the mouth with a nutty/vanilla mid-palate.
Finish: Biscuity. Light.
Comment: Once again the nose offers up hope only for it to be dashed on the palate. It's not so much these are light, it is that they lack substance.
Nose: Delicate, with pleasing aromas of pears and spring flowers.
Palate: Malt and ginger, slightly assertive.
Finish: Attractive ginger/spice notes, but not much length to it.
Comment: Lively spices dominate this expression, but perhaps slightly on the youthful side?
