Tasting Notes

Nose

Aromatic, sweet barley and vanilla oak. Pleasantly fruity with banana, apricot, greengage, thyme, grass and citrus. With time an almost grainy Pot Still-like note appears.

Palate

Crisper and fresher to begin with, followed by the fleshy apricot, apple, banana and a touch of honey which fills it out. Beautifully balanced with hints of lime and crunchy barley. \n

Finish

Good crisp, citric and mineral finish with lingering sweet barley, herbs and oak.\n

Comment

Poised, elegant and very well balanced. A lovely drop of the Irish as they say.
