Perfect for a winter’s evening with a nice cigar.
No age statement
Year of Bottling
Republic of Ireland
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: A fresh nose of petrichor, warm car engines and honey. A hug in a mug as a soup brand once said.
Palate: Really, really drinkable. There is honey and spice (almost mead like) with vanilla, rose petal and sweet black tea. This, over ice, in a big tumbler please.\n
Finish: Warming and sweet.
Comment: Perfect for a winter’s evening with a nice cigar.
Nose: A dusty, pollen heavy nose with a touch of honey. Lightly herbal and shot through with pleasant pot still spices, sour fruit and citrus.
Palate: A touch more toffeed oak appears on the palate with lightly herbal and delicate pot still spices. Quite grainy on the middle with honey and coffee notes.\n
Finish: Deceptively long with lingering herbal spices, toffee and coffee.\n
Comment: Pleasant, soft and subtle. However I think it might have benefited from being bottled at 46% ABV, which would have given the palate a little more intensity.
