Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: Mmm, sweet, fruity with juicy grape, some citrus peel, backed by a smooth, oaky character. Very nice.
Taste: medium-bodied, quite oaky with the sweetness leading into heavier spices. The character veers between citrus-fruity and chocolatey-rich. Mid-palate you get that hard, coppery kick that is unique to pure pot still whiskies. Subtle, but with tons of character.
Finish: oak-dominant, but not without some sweetness. On the short side.
Balance: everything works with this dram. From start to finish, a pleasant drinking experience, easy enough to keep you coming back but bold enough to make things interesting. As Irish whiskey goes, it doesn't get much better.
