An Irish single malt, aged in bourbon casks and bottled at 40% alc/vol. without added colouring.

Nose

With a single ice cube, it exhibits a crisp, sweet aroma of green apple and cedar sawdust. A very bright and lively aroma.

Taste

Creamy, lemony sweetness greets the tongue. Then things get crisp and bittersweet in a hurry. There is a slight metallic edge, characteristic of a triple-distilled Irish. Lightly perfumed at the back of the tongue.

Finish

Somewhat bitter and woody, and of medium length. A simplistic but fitting fade.

Balance

I really like this. Fully matured, affordable, naturally pale and pleasing to the senses, this makes a great everyday malt and a good entry at the price point.

Good review; thank you. You may want to give it a try with just a few drops of water added. Let us know what you think if you do so.
