Nose: Apricot, peach, raspberry, sharp gooseberry, sticky dates, bright floral notes, a hint of vanilla and good old sugary tablet.
Palate: Barley sugars, lemon, marzipan and liquorice.
Finish: Dry with sweet vanilla and light golden fruits.
Notes: This was my first Irish whiskey and I really enjoyed it. Would make a perfect dram on long summer nights. Towards the end of the glass, I added a drop of water which was a mistake. It drowned the whiskey's character and turned it into a rather average drop. Drink neat and you're in for a treat. Hey, that rhymed!
