This, along with Johnny Walker Red Label is one of the worlds most well known whiskies. It is a very standard, young whisky which is my first Irish experience.

  • Nose: Smooth, wood citrus, barley malt, vanilla milk, creamy, peach stones a little bit of alcohol nip. With water little bit more savoury malt, very floury banana, cream and vanilla there but more savoury over all.

  • Pallet: very creamy texture, vanilla again, lots of banana, malty notes and wood citrus, very similar to the nose, little bit of cinnamon lingering in the background there is a sour note which becomes more prominent. With water creamy arrival again then some nutmeg but still a lot of nip, vanilla ice cream, then a really metallic bitterness.

  • Finish: sour note quite vegetal in its presentation, metallic zing develops and lasts. With water bitterness dominates, there are hints of lime pith but it’s pretty unpleasant more water doesn’t help

  • Mark neat – 7, with water 6.5

Look, its not great. Won't put me off trying more Irish whisky but this stuff is, well a bit like Johnny Walker Red, not great.
