So this was from a small 5cl Trinity pack. Glass was aired for one hour before tasting.

On the colour scale it's a pale light yellow/golden whisky.

The nose brings with it the familiar tones of Irish pot still and the crystal clean lines of unmalted grains, lemon citrus, chardonnay wine, vanilla, honey wine mead, sultanas and notes of sweetness from the rum cask. Hints of that unrefined brown sugar and sultanas from the rum, mixing with some slightly unripe banana ester. Very pleasant on the nose but little in the way of complexity. Solid clean lines.

On the taste it's crunchy unmalted cereal grains, lemon citrus, chardonnay wine grape, with the associated steeliness, honey, very slight hints of dark rum, and some more of that slight banana ester. Little rough around the edges and hot.

Body is light.

Finish is a bit hot. Honey and mead with some hotness, but it doesn't linger too long. Some tangy unripe banana coming in every now and again. Bit of sultana too.

A decent whisky if a little rough around the edges on the taste and finish.
