M: A soft but rich nose with lots of fruity flavours, like currants and oranges and a little spiciness.
M: Really quite sweet flavours. The dried fruits from the smell are complemented with fresh, sweet caramel and vanilla flavours.
M: Sooooo smooth. The fruit flavours leave for a melted vanilla ice cream coating on the threat – like a boozy cola float.
M: When people say, “I like such-and-such a whisky, because it is nice and smooth” then this will blow their minds and reset the bar for what “smooth” really means. That’s what it did for me, anyway. I knew that Irish whiskey was more renowned for its triple distillation and “creamy mouthfeel” but this is just something else. And that’s not taking into account the nice sherried fruit flavours and velvety sweetness. Definitely one to be savoured at the end of the evening regardless of the season.
