Peter Mulryan

Nose
The very Irish nose tweak of resin, sherry and linseed.
Palate
Fat and oily. Layers of satin ginger, silk honey and hints of spicy liquorice.
Finish
Vanilla pods and marsala.
Comment
This is what real pure pot still whiskey is all about, a glorious contradiction of soft fruit and firm grain, oily seeds and sweet wood. World beating stuff.

Dave Broom

Nose
Intense and full blooded. Pot still richness: citrus oils, hot sealing wax, leather, tobacco, tea, maraschino, overripe fruits, marzipan. Exemplary.
Palate
Ridiculously big. Oozes into the mouth and erupts. Spices galore to the finish. Oily and unctuous.
Finish
Long, rich, oily.
Comment
Whiskey covering the entire spectrum of aroma, taste, feel, flavour. World class.
