Bananarama! If you’re a big fan of the bendy yellow fruit, this is the drop for you.
Oak Aged Irish Whiskey
No age statement
Year of Bottling
Republic of Ireland
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Big bowl of banana custard, freshly baked banana bread, mingling with dried apricots, sawdust and boot polish.
Palate: Smooth tropical-fruit start makes way for a spicy explosion with pepper and a woody character.
Finish: Very dry, with those banana and vanilla hints lingering on past the rest. Cocoa powder and wood varnish.
Comment: Bananarama! If you’re a big fan of the bendy yellow fruit, this is the drop for you.
Nose: It’s all about the fruit. Strawberries, apricots, sultanas and oranges, with honey and melons. Grapefruit. Once that fades the vanilla is more apparent.
Palate: A lovely oily texture, and similar fruit to the nose. In addition come raisins, touches of redcurrants, raspberry jam spread across wholemeal toast. Honey, in fact almost mead-like.
Finish: Fairly short, and curiously the sweetness fades quickly leaving woodiness and pepper.
Comment: Good blending, easy everyday drinking. Just a little too easy.
