Peter Mulryan

Nose
A delicate waft of mashed banana and spice jars.
Palate
Soft gentle nuttiness, echoes of fortified wine.
Finish
Spirity.
Comment
Triple distilled whiskey drawn from bourbon, sherry and port wood...what a balancing act. It usually works a treat, but this time the elements are strangely out of kilter.

Dave Broom

Nose
Big, fat and sweet. Butter and raisins. Forms slowly with pineapple, stewed fruits, malted milk, coconut, cereal, cocoa, orange. Big (but balanced) oak.
Palate
Round and rich. Sweet dried fruits, brazil nut, coffee, soft malt, popcorn. Good grip. Oak in balance.
Finish
Long. Hazelnut.
Comment
Plenty of oak but the spirit holds its own. An extra dimension to the 10.
