A liquid form of the Miles Davis’ So What, with the grain as the smooth bass line and the spices taking the horn section.
No age statement
Republic of Ireland
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Grainy, then buttered popcorn. Redcurrants. Floral peonies and sweet red roses. Wood influence here, pencil shavings and fresh planed oak. Toasted wood as well.
Palate: Instantly spicy with hot chilli, then wood tannins. Refresher sweets, red and black fruit pastilles. Some coffee grinds and a meaty edge.
Finish: Sweet with those spices taking control and drying things.
Comment: A liquid form of the Miles Davis’ So What, with the grain as the smooth bass line and the spices taking the horn section.
Nose: Turkish delight and vanilla fudge, then gooseberry syrup, a floral note of peonies, and blue bubblegum. Red cherry leads and fresh hay meadows follow, water brings out celery salt, cola cubes and big cinnamon spice.
Palate: Very fiery for the ABV, but then cherry pie and demerara sugar, honeydew melon and runny honey. The cola cubes and cinnamon continue through.
Finish: Very long and very hot and cinnamon spice lingers.
Comment: Like eating cherry pie on a picnic in a wildflower meadow.
