Now I love the fact that this 15yo scotch has got such an affordable price. And, although it is not as heavily flavored as some others, it still delivers big time on complexity and overall balance. A perfect malt to sip in summer, in my opinion, because of its lovely refreshing character.
NOSE: fresh white fruits covered in honey and cream. Kiwi fruit, lemon zest, a lot of freshly ground ginger and vanilla. With a drop of water it shows its slight floral aromas as well. The acidity of this nose along with a kiwi note reminds me of New Zealand white wines (Sauvignon Blanc in particular). Pears, green and red apples. Very much an Irish-ed nose with lots of fruits, floral notes and honey, but no peat or smoke whatsoever. Delicious. 23
TASTE: sour lemon arrival which quickly develops into spicy ginger vanilla cake notes. Effervescent dry champagne notes of fresh green apple. Aromatic honey, shortbread with whipped cream on top with fresh ripe fruits mixed in. 22/25
FINISH: long with vanilla cake, kiwi again and slightly oak dry. 23/25
BALANCE: Lovely transition of flavors through the entire whisky experience. Beautifully balanced. 24/25
