No age statement
Year of Bottling
Republic of Ireland
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Very scented, appleskin dryness. Oily, cereal-grain.
Palate: Light, oily, grassy. Lightly malty and cookie-like. Some vanilla sweetness.
Finish: Crisp, clean. Hint of charcoal.
Comment: A pleasant, light-tasting malt.
Nose: Fresh, malty, and amazingly fruity. Loads of citrus and traces of apple. There is just a very faint touch of ammonia to this vatting, which is not normally the case.
Palate: Intense malt with a distinctive, coppery richness. Spicy, with a fine sweet/dry balance. But the oak does start making a point.
Finish: Dry and lacking true depth.
Comment: Perhaps the most inconsistent brand from Cooley. Not the finest expression of its normally impressive single malt; usually there is greater clarity and depth.
