No age statement, but clearly very young. Probably even just 3 years old.

Nose: Waxy, nail polish remover, aceton, herbal, green anise. After a while, it becomes sweeter with vanilla, caramel like Werther’s Original candy. The longer you leave it, the better it becomes.

Taste: Pineapple, toffee, very gently spiced, herbs, soft.

Finish: short and dry with a bitter after-note.

After 53 years this is the first ‘official’ Kilbeggan to be released, distilled in the world’s oldest pot still from 1830. Amazing. Historic. And plain good whiskey.
