Nose
Very ripe sweet cantaloupe, red apples and Starburst sweets. Apples wrapped in brown paper and fragrant candles. Zesty and waxy like star fruits and Amalfi lemons.
Palate
Crème caramel, coffee cake, lots of cocoa and Walnut Whip. Orange fondant in milk chocolate. It became rather flat and woody after time.
Finish
A rich, chewy texture.
Comment
Exceedingly good but don't leave it for too long.

Nose
A very unusual putty-like note arrives first, with a hint of tropical fruit, marzipan, a little floral wax and fragrant face powder.
Palate
A pepperiness greets the palate, but then a richer, softer tropical fruit, some creamy malt and a grain whisky note, full of greener fruit notes (think gooseberries and Kiwi). Well balanced indeed.
Finish
A surprising spicy oak note stays on to dominate the finish, alongside a subtle creaminess.
Comment
If I was going to hazard a guess, I would say a fine example of a well made Irish whiskey, but then again...
