  • Producer's Notes

    • Nose

      Zesty spice, with hints of black pepper, cinnamon and peaches. A slight hint of vanilla too, with a suggestive savour of green apple.

    • Palate

      Pot-still spice, malt, dark chocolate, bourbon oak, and crème caramel.

    • Finish

      Everlasting finish with oak and butterscotch. Lingers for what seems like an eternity!.

    This is by far the best Irish Whiskey on the market. Made not to far from Carlow, this is a smooth triple cooper pot distilled Whiskey. Have shared with several other people and they say the same.

    This is a fantastic Irish whiskey for the price. Smooth and mellow with a hint of sweetness. Shared with a few friends and they raved as well. No more sharing lol.

    Absolute jan,

    Loved it! Tastes much more expensive than it is. Perfect after dinner drink. Brought it for my husbands birthday as he is a whiskey drinker. It got the thumbs up from him too and he knows more about whiskey than I do.
