Colour: Yellow gold (9ct)
Nose: Hay and
straw initially make this a light farmy whiskey. Wet leaves and
a hint of rubber follow shortly afterwards. After some minutes
light floral and butterscotch notes begin to appear which
intensify with more time.
Very smooth start with that hay, but the palate intensifies and
expands to include floral malt and butterscotch with black
Finish: Long with gentle black pepper.
My first 'farmy' Irish whiskey but it's still smooth and
flavoursome. Not bad, but not my favourite style, although
that's purely personal.
