General description

excellent blend, top quality pot still and malts combined in an excellent bourbon cask. perfect everyday sipping whiskey!

Nose

caramel and butterscotch, some cinnamon spice, black pepper. pencil shavings towards the back end. this is a good bourbon cask! water bring out the single malt, apples, pears and juicy fruit chewing gum.

Palate

sweet malt to start, weetabix with honey. juicy grapes, and alot of hot spices, cayenne, chilli and white pepper. water adds pears and orchard fruits.

Finish

short but those spices hang around the mouth. Nice!

General description

Tasted blind with four other Irish bottles. This finished just out of the top spot behind Jameson Black Barrel. I really like this. It really deserves a cork. Sad to see such good juice under a screw top.

N - Fruits...pear apricot and citrus. Licorice candy with peach brandy.

P - Fruit. Spice with top mouth heat. Vanilla, citrus and fresh baked pie crust.

F - Long warm fruity finish with a bit more spice tailing off.

Typically, I find most Irish whiskey boring and uninspiring. Very few bottles are really bad or off putting, just drinkable and weak. A few of these pours, including the Writer's Tears Copper Pot, were pleasant surprises. A fancier bottle and a synthetic cork, and I would easily keep a bottle on hand.
