This is a super little whiskey; a premium Jameson clone. And a good one too.
Aged 12 Years
Republic of Ireland
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Fruit scones with burnt raisins.
Palate: That crackling pot still and sherry wood combination is knockout here, beautifully balanced with toasted vanilla notes and sunflower seeds.
Finish: Slightly bitter. Burnt hops, toffee on the stove. Very long.
Comment: This is a super little whiskey; a premium Jameson clone. And a good one too.
Nose: Firm with some unmalted barley notes. Rich tea biscuit, slightly grassy and oily. Wild herbs (tarragon) and a hard note right in the centre.
Palate: Light bodied. Chewier than the nose suggests with nutmeg and a mouth filling character.
Finish: Nutty, good, spicy.
Comment: Well made and quite delicate. Decent balance.
