Chris Goodrum

83
Nose
Dense, full and fleshy with apricot, honey and smoke. Well-balanced with some sweet grain making an appearance with time.
Palate
Crisper and more grain focused, but the grain has a delightful sweetness and fills out the palate in the absence of any malt character. Hints of honey, apricot and citrus on the middle.
Finish
Medium, sweet and grainy but some crisper grain notes add a bit of bite and spice.
Comment
Someone has paid attention to the grain here – it feels more like a vatted grain. It's still very enjoyable.

Joel Harrison

84
Nose
Rich butterscotch is the first note, coupled with stem ginger and creamy notes which balance out an oaky tone. Very well-balanced and lively, with notes of apricot jam.
Palate
A rich palate of peach melba, malt biscuits, hints of sea salt caramel and a back palate of lemon thyme, lime juice and clove.
Finish
Strong and long, this gives a lot of caramel and oak notes which linger well.
Comment
Far more robust than most Irish whiskeys.
