Following my fantastic 43 year old vintage, the owner of the pub got up and came back about five minutes later with two more drams for me. I was shocked. This was just way too much fun! He didn't tell me what they were. Nudging one of them in my direction he said "Okay, so this one's first. Tell me what you smell."
And off we went... what an experience!
Nose: Wow, like banana cream, nutmeg, hazelnut, caramel... what is this stuff? Talk about an awesome desert wine!
(At this point, he told me what I had - the Redbreast 12, an Irish Whiskey.)
Palate: Wow, this is great! Easy, approachable, something you could easily enjoy as a desert Whiskey if you were looking for something sweet. I found bisquit, caramel, more orchard fruits and banana, and an awesome maltiness comes through... easy, light yet sweet, and entirely enjoyable.
Finish: Smooth, lovely, more fruit and malt... that malt is fantastic.
Nothing too complex here at all, but just a good, easy, Irish Whiskey that would go great with a creamy desert.
