Another beauty from Cooley Distillery (where my fav Greenore is also distilled) just south of the Irish border, that won two gold medals in 2008 (which is when I got my first bottle - definitively not the last!).

Dubbed 'the Smokey One', it starts with a sweet honey taste, followed by dried fruits. It has a nice long peaty finish.

In my humble opinion, the bouquet really comes out when adding just a little bit of water.

Have been wanting to try this - it appeals the most from the Irish Whiskeys.

Well, now's your chance! If you order any bottle from the Whiskey Exchange, you get a miniature of this particular whisky (as long as stocks last, that is).

After being an expat in Limerick Ireland in mid-90's I got to know the Irish whiskeys too. This one and Black Bush are my favorite "everyday" easy drinking whiskeys. That reminds me, that I have to get some more.....

This was my first bottle of whisky and is not bad at all. Peated which is rare for an irish whisky. Enjoy!

I was slightly disappointed by this dram, it has been for three weeks in my cabinet and I'm still trying to "understand" it, if you get what I mean...It seems to me as if the floral bouquet of a typical irish had withered due to peat smoke, but I still cannot decide if I really enjoy it...it challenges me!
