Tasting Notes

Tasting notes by Billy A

Lemon cheesecake, (yellow) Jelly Babies, butterscotch, barley, butter and cinnamon.

Palate

Lots of grain, starting sweet and slowly turning spicy and gently sour. With that comes buttered toast, layered with grape jam, nutmeg, clove, lemon zest and fruit gums, with spicy liquorice root sat at the back.

Finish

Apple skin turning sweeter, through fresh apple to stewed and spicy compote. It ends at Jolly Ranchers, with a touch of spicy rye bread.

Comment

Classically fruity pot-still whiskey, with some grape-sweetness behind the more tropical and orchard fruits. Well-balanced spice and citrus notes.

Tasting Notes by Stuart P

Pronounced aromas of fruit, barley and toffee – this isn’t shy.

Palate

Well-balanced notes of juicy, appley fruit and sweet grains and barley, seasoned with toast and spice. Very appealing and very easy to drink.

Finish

The sweet spice persists after the soft fruit disappears.

Customer Reviews

Reviews

Excellent Irish whiskey – smooth and with lots of pot still character. Definitely one to keep in any Irish whiskey library. Hard to find fault with any of the ‘spot’ whiskies. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too much longer for a Blue Spot.

Exceptional Irish Whiskey. If you’re a fan of pot still, this is one worth trying.

This is a superb whiskey, great floral notes at the front and a smooth finish – one of the best single pot stills in my opinion.

I rate this five stars based on taste alone. If you like single pot still whiskey you owe it to yourself to give this a try. You will not be disappointed.

Very good. Light and full range of taste.
