Nose
On the one hand, it's lightly estery and slightly soapy, but on the other it's edgy and grainy with green apple, pineapple, apricot and bolstering creamy oak. With time hints of dunnage.
Palate
A little underpowered and watery. Straightforward with hints of honey, apricot, earth and creamy oak. A little grassy note adds balance, but the oak begins to dominate.
Finish
Good length with some light buzzy spices amid the toffeed oak.
Comment
Lots of potential for this Irish Whiskey.

Nose
Another offering with an inviting but slightly too easy nose. Orange juice, white grapes, pine. There isn't a lot going on but it will win a lot of friends.
Palate
So easy to drink. Could be a dangerous bottle in your collection. The simple aromas that are found in the nose appear on the palate and it slips down a treat.
Finish
Guess what? Nothing bad going on, but nothing remarkable either. Same flavours again. Sit back and pour yourself another.
Comment
Utterly consistent from start to finish, this is one to enjoy with friends just getting into whisky.
