General description

Exellent full bodied and ballanced dram. Strong and intense sherried nose, also deep and rich. The mouthfeel is creamy with sweet multi-layered taste. The finish is medium to long and dry, with a chocolate and spice on the tongue. With a little bit longer finish, the score would have been above 90. Highly recommended for sherry whisky lovers

General description

A very small amount of peated malt in the mashbill. Thisnis a well balanceddram, perfect for the fireside and a good book. I'm told that 98% of their output goes into Johnny Walker for blending as its owned by Diagio. Note also that Diagio have a preference for the bulbous neck in their whiskey bottles. Mulligans bonfire tasting Nov 20

Nose

very nice sherry nose

Palate

Thin, not as full bodies as a sherried Irish whiskey, though it does have some candied peel and fruitiness. Smooth not brash.

Finish

Very spicey, lotsnof ginger,

General description

ein leckerer unaufdringlicher Speysider. Die Aromen sind etwas zu fein ausgeprägt und der Abgang eher. Ansonsten ein sehr neutraler Whisky.
