A fruity springtime whiskey, which needs time to reveal itself. Interesting though.
1996, Single Cask
No age statement
Republic of Ireland
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Malty and fruity. Creamy and perfumy. Fresh pineapple juice. Saw dust. Slightly toasted sweet bun. A faint rubbery note. It takes time to unwind and show its delicate complexity. With water, almond syrup.
Palate: Crisp. Fizzy. A full bowl of exotic fruit. Pineapple, passion fruit.
Finish: Medium. Dry. Ground ginger.
Comment: A fruity springtime whiskey, which needs time to reveal itself. Interesting though.
Nose: Light and spring fresh with a little touch of lychee, green melon, strawberry and crisp oak. With water comes a note akin to marzipan/almond milk.
Palate: Fruits to the fore here: pears, a little mint and a dusting of icing sugar on baked apple. All very delicate, smooth and sweet. Oak just pokes out a little.
Finish: Clean and fragile.
Comment: Delicate and charming.
