I had my first taste of this Irish whisky this afternoon during lunch with co-workers. Normally I wouldn't spend that much time tasting during a work lunch, but this time, I had the Connosr community in mind :-). I asked two fingers, no ice (JohnoftheYard will be happy).
The nose was a mix of lemon and spices with a slight undertone of vanilla.
It has a very clear taste (according to the bartender, that comes from its triple distilling and ageing in oak casks - I take his word for it).
It was very smooth and hence ideal as aperitif before lunch. The body is a little buttery with a tad of citrus.
It has a smooth finish but a bit short to my taste.
Nothing too fancy in my opinion, but a very good 'every day' whisky.
