Review is from a 50ml sample kindly provided by @RianC (who's username I type so often it now comes up on the predictive text on my phone!).
I drank this about a month ago made some notes and just didn't get around to typing up the review.
Lovely nose on this that made me think of barley fields in the summer. Slight alcoholic nip but that's OK. Spicy and soft sweet fruits, straw, cereal, some dried fruits and cut grass. The cut grass comes through really strong.
Decent mouthfeel. Quite chewy. Spicy in an indistinct way not really pepper something else I can't pin down. That grassy note again, caramelized oranges, pineapple, butter, barley sugar sweets.
Reasonably long and spicy with the dried fruits really coming through.
So I enjoyed my first Irish pot still. It didn't seem overally complex but a little different. That grassy note is lovely and is interwoven into every part of the whiskey. Definitely a summer dram. This goes for around £45-50 in the UK and at that price I'd be tempted to grab a bottle if I saw it on a shelf and fancied something different.
