Launched in 1996, this double-distilled Irish single malt whiskey is made using malted barley dried over peat fires with smoke rising through the grain. Consequently it has a distinct peaty flavour, more typical of Scotch whisky and not usually associated with Ireland. Aged for a minimum of 8 years.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 29/12/2014

Appearance:

Clear, mid golden amber with polished golden glints.

Aroma:

Sweet barley (touch of barley water) with wafts of peaty smoke, kippers and well baked apple crumble.

Taste:

Lightly honey sweet, subdued clean rather than sooty smoke with peaty vegetal notes, sweet barley water, light spice and vanilla oak.

Aftertaste:

Lingering smoke, chocolate, spicy oak and sweet almonds with lingering black pepper.
