Grain 1991, 9 Years Old, Cask 10839
Republic of Ireland
Nose: Damp grass and wood. It is nutty with a slight musty edge.
Palate: Sweet and quite thick to start, but seems a little unbalanced.
Comment: Easy going.
Nose: Lemon grass. Garden mint. Ground almonds.
Palate: Firm. Starts dry but some peppery sweetness develops. Fuller flavour than its sister, Greenore.
Finish: Slightly sticky. Fruity. Hot.
Comment: For a grain whiskey, it has plenty of flavours, but they do not hang together very well.
