Nose
Shy. With an unpleasant turpentine note. Cardboardy as well. Opens on nicer notes. Lemon zest. Vanilla pod. All light and restrained.
Palate
Mellow and round. A lovely silky feel. Very fruity. Tinned peach. Vanilla custard. Passion fruit.
Finish
Drying on spices. With character.
Comment
Nose and palate are completely different. The second saving the first. The palate shows a beautiful Irish character whereas the nose is bland. So drink it without nosing it.

Nose
Nose Takes its time but there is vanilla and citrus. A sherry mellowness as well. There is a little bitterness as well.
Palate
Bags of fruit going on here. Pears in custard, Chantilly cream, lime and pomegranates as well.
Finish
Shortish and spicy.
Comment
There is none of the bitterness on the palate, making for a tale of two halves.
