Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Simon Difford for Class Magazine

    Clear, pale golden.

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

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

    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.


    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.

    I'm a fan of the smooth, mellow and delicious. I had the chance to try this from a friend, and instantly loved it. I haven't been able to find another bottle, though!

    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 !

    Just had the 8 year old greenore.Best irish whiskey I ever had.

  • Tom 31 December 2012

    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.

  • Tam 30 April 2011

    Love it! very smooth with some body.

  • C Ross 9 March 2011

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

  • Pat 17 February 2011

    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

    This whiskey is just so smooth tasting just wonderful.

  • 8 December 2009

    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.

  • Nick 7 November 2009

    Lovely, clean, bourbon-y, zingy stuff. Unusual and worth a try.

  • Leo 22 October 2009

    This is by far the nicest I have tried, silky melt in your mouth stuff, have just ordered the 15yr variety... can't wait!
