Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Simon Difford for Class Magazine

    Appearance
    Clear, pale golden.

    Aroma
    Honey, golden syrup and corn oil with French baguette, green apple skin, and aoverripe tropical fruit/white peach. Pinch of cinnamon spice.

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

    Aftertaste
    Honeyed sweet corn oil with cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of ginger and black pepper. Sweet and easy - the training bra of whiskies.

    Diffordsguide rating - 4.5/5

  • 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.

    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.

    Bought a bottle in Ontario. Amazingly smooth, highly recommended. A great sip.

    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

    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.
