Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Peter Mulryan

    Nose: The breathtaking crackle of pot still whiskey, infused with gentle wintergreen.

    Taste: Full bodied with no apologies. Oily linseed cooled by strains of gentle menthol, joined by some spiciness towards the end. 

    Finish: Dry and sweet and long

    Comments: For those who like a slighly lighter pot still than that found in the older, more sherry influenced Redbreast.

  • Tasting Notes by Jim Murray

    Nose: The first thing to strike you is the density of the nose; nothing light and flowery here. The pot still appears older than its eight years thanks to a pleasant dustiness (something similar to old Redbreast), and the influence of the sherry. All this is mixed with a curious menthol sub-stratum. Some evidence of bourbon wood around too, but rather overshadowed by this highly unusual cough-sweet, malty effect.

    Taste: Sweet, rich and full bodied from the very start. It quickly fills the mouth with a glorious spiciness. All the time it somehow remains soft, though the tastebuds are constantly tweaked by a harder pot still maltiness. Wonderfully complex and busy.

    Finish: Very long, dry and malty to start then sweetens and some late spice adds to all the fun. The very last, dying rays are rather cool on the throat, as if the menthol on the nose has returned.

    Comments: This is a tremendous whiskey, sometimes giving a sweet-honey feel more associated with Perthshire malts from Scotland. But the pot still is confident enough to confirm this as Irish with a maturity greater than the age of the whiskey used. If you see it, grab it. It’s too much of a high class one-off to ignore.
