  • 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.

    Curracloe,

    My first experience of this particular whiskey and I love it. I am not a person who uses pretentious descriptions. Nonetheless this is a lovely whiskey. Some late sweetness, lovely smooth flavour and just so good on a late evening with a book. Where it''s from is also not a bad place to visit and it''s near Fitzpatrick''s Pub !
