A rich nose and a somewhat restrained palate with an assertive oak print,which the high strength\ramplifies. But an elegant dryness.

Republic of Ireland
Nose: Appetising. Hazelnut toffee. Pecan pie, tarte tatin. Calls the luscious image of a 'sweet chariot'
Palate: Crisp,dry. Oak frames the flavours. Less rewarding than the nose but refined.
Finish: Dry,sherbety with a woody bite.
Comment: A rich nose and a somewhat restrained palate with an assertive oak print,which the high strength\ramplifies. But an elegant dryness.
Nose: Chocolate,spearmint,chicory, light fruit.
Palate: Full and rich,Turkish Delight, hot chocolate.
Finish: Long,pleasant,sweet and fruity.
Comment: A bit like a box of chocolate all sorts. This trend towards stronger Irish is very welcome.
