Nose - Caramel, burnt treacle, candy floss and orange. Sweet and intense.
Palate - Orange with sweeter fruit coming through. Treacle and hard-boiled sweets flavours. Caramel is there with a woody oak astringency in the background. There's a strawberry edge later on.
Finish - Sweet but very drying and slightly prickly. Long lasting - wood tannins playing a big part here.
I've not tried many Irish whiskeys but this is easily the best I can recall - much more complex and intense than the 'Irish benchmark' of Bushmills 10. It's delicious and very moreish.
