This malt used to be a tad young, the current bottling is older and certainly works better.
No age statement
Republic of Ireland
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: An intense assault of pear drops, lime peel and Haribo jelly sweets. Incredibly fruity.
Palate: Very creamy but not as sweet as the nose would lead you to believe. Loads of grassy spice with honeyed oak after a moment.
Finish: Quinine dry.
Comment: This malt used to be a tad young, the current bottling is older and certainly works better.
Nose: Oaky. Balsa wood, young spirit. Malt husks and a green, grappa-like note.
Palate: Thin and dilute. Soft fruits in centre, but overpowered by tightly gripping oak and lemony spirit.
Finish: Dry, short.
Comment: Young, hard to back.
