Sweet vanilla and caramel with buttery oak, white fruit and a pinch of spice - nutmeg and cinnamon.

Aftertaste

Tasting Notes by Dr Whisky

Sweet, appetising and organic nose. Sweet with vanilla, dried banana chips, and coconut oil. Bourbon-y sweetness that gets the mouth wet in anticipation. Organic like fresh corn, green tomatoes, chlorophyll.

Mmm, buttery and fruity. Toasty. Caramel. Almonds with a twist of watery lemonade. Honeyed finish with a tinge of those organic notes found on the nose.

SUMMARY:

Superficial stuff first, I like the bottle design (like the Arran Anniversary shape) and the cork is fat and tight giving a nice loud sssquuueeepft when you open it. This is a light, fresh, and invigorating whisky that is perfect for a summer day. Very bourbon-y without any of the harder tannins but might be a bit sweet and cloying for some people or even for some moods. Could do well in a cocktail in place of bourbon, or even rum. Yet more evidence that great things can come from the world of grain whisk(e)y.

Just had the 8 year old greenore.Best irish whiskey I ever had.
- Johnny A, 6th May
A wonderfully smooth Irish whiskey that really does melt in the mouth as one other reviewer put it very well. A smoothness that by far surpasses any other whiskey or malt, somthing to saviour.
- Tom, 31st Dec '12
Love it! very smooth with some body.
- Tam, 30th Apr '11
Bought a bottle in Ontario. Amazingly smooth, highly recommended. A great sip.
- C Ross, 9th Mar '11
Grain whiskey is still something of an unknown but makes a lovely and smooth alternative.Nose: shy, damp hay, pear blossom, lightly-stewed apples, honey, vegetal.Palate: Initially smoky, slight woodiness and then smooths off at the end
- Pat , 17th Feb '11
This whiskey is just so smooth tasting just wonderful.
- anonymous, 21st Jul '10
Soft and smooth, this is my kinda dram (however, I do prefer the 15-year old). Ideal as an aperitif, believe me. Well worth every penny.
- Whivie.be, 8th Dec '09
Lovely, clean, bourbon-y, zingy stuff. Unusual and worth a try.
- Nick, 7th Nov '09
