Peter Mulryan

The very Irish nose tweak of resin, sherry and linseed.
Fat and oily. Layers of satin ginger, silk honey and hints of spicy liquorice.
Vanilla pods and marsala.
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

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