A promising nose, but doesn't deliver on the palate.
No age statement
Republic of Ireland
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Lightly floral, with apple skin, lemon peel but with a dry, biscuity undertow. Good with water.
Palate: Cracked wheat, very light and is destroyed by water which splits it into its constituent parts.
Finish: Insubstantial and quite hard.
Comment: A promising nose, but doesn't deliver on the palate.
Nose: High, sweet, with a pleasing note of peaches.
Palate: Nutty and oaky.
Finish: Medium, oaky, drying to something quite astringent.
Comment: Again, an attractive nose is confounded by a lacklustre experience in the mouth.
