Appearance – Dark Golden in colour, sticks well to the glass, produces small beads and thin legs.
Nose – Fizzy with ABV, Cream soda, Lemon oil, Apricot, Strawberries, Dark fruits too, Sweet smoke due to the amount of fruit, and Icing sugar.
Palate – Much darker fruits all round, more Sherry notes, Black pepper, Lemon again, Cinnamon, Cask char, Sultanas, Figs, Tropical fruits coming through, Smoky, Rich, and Syrupy.
Finish – Medium to long, Tropical fruits, lingering Smoke, Peppery spicy.
My thoughts – This is a super blended Whiskey, loads of flavour, loverly development and finish.
Would I buy a bottle? – Definitely, a wonderful blended Irish Whiskey.
