Whisky Advent Calendar: Day 18/24 - Yellow Spot 12 Year Old Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey - 46%

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!
