Michael Jackson

Nose
Light. Fresh wood. Vanilla. Distinctly buttery.
Palate
Creamy. Vanilla. Fresh apple. Honey.
Finish
Lightly toasty. Fresh-cut cedar.
Comment
There is some virgin oak in this one, along with bourbon casks. Bonus points for trying something new, but would have expected more interesting results. I find it a bit light tasting. Try it with fresh brown bread and Dublin Bay prawns.

Jim Murray

Nose
Layered elements of soft honey and subtle oak criss-crossing the crisp pot-still.
Palate
Truly magnificent honey-barley notes.
Finish
Silky and subtle, an essay in bittersweet balance with the final, drier, bitter notes reminding you of some decent age.
Comment
No two vattings are ever the same. However this is, astonishingly high quality every time. The most complex Irish of them all; a blender triumph.
