Classic, simple flavours but really rather moreish. A really solid grain that I could see myself recommending.
15 Years Old Single Grain
Republic of Ireland
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Sweet grains, toffee popcorn, and subtle pear drop. Vanilla pod, toffee, and some delicate mixed berries. White chocolate chip cookie.
Palate: Light-medium. Silky and sweet crème brûlée with caramelised (but not burnt) top. Some delicate cinnamon and digestive biscuit notes.
Finish: Medium-long. The sweetness subsides and apple core emerges.
Comment: Classic, simple flavours but really rather moreish. A really solid grain that I could see myself recommending.
Nose: Salted butter and a hint of beeswax. Toasted oak, a little allspice, apricot jam, expressed orange zest, and light floral notes, like lavender. Crème anglaise, heavy with vanilla.
Palate: Medium bodied. Stone fruits – apricot, peach – with caramel and lots more vanilla. A hint of bread and butter pudding and rum-raisin ice cream. Sweet cinnamon and ground ginger warmth. A hint of fresh fig.
Finish: Medium. On plum and rising bread dough.
Comment: A creamy, fruity delight.
