Review and Tasting
Sampled on 05/01/2016
Fermenting wort with faint pear, gooseberry and Riesling wine.
Slighty estery and acidic. Reminiscent of still fermenting wort with faint pear and white pepper.
A slightly salty continuation of the palate with fruit notes amplified. Surprisingly long.
This Irish Poitín has a character that is believably off a small, perhaps illicit still with attractive flavours of fermenting wort and fruity esters carrying into the finished product.
