I have been drinking almost exclusively Scotch whisky as of late, but decided to try this to change things up a bit. This is the first Irish whiskey I have tried and was not expecting this to add up when compared to Scotch, but this really surprised me in a good way and I found this just as enjoyable and I was quite impressed.

I drank this neat in a Libbey rocks glass, with a glass of tap water on the side. The nose is sweet with hints of wood. The first thing I noticed when tasting is that this is a little lighter than a lot of the other whiskys I've had. It is pleasant going down and has no burn or harshness from the alcohol. I picked up notes of honey, caramel, wood and somewhat floral flavors at the end. I found this whiskey to be quite enjoyable and will definitely be drinking this again.
