A blend of Irish malt and grain whiskies. The somewhat previous ‘Fourth Centennial’ in question celebrates the 1691 ‘Flight of The Wild Geese’ which occurred after the Treaty of Limerick when some 14,000 soldiers and 10,000 women and children fled Ireland for France. Still, stock up and plan ahead. Read more

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 13/08/2012

Appearance

Clear, mid golden.

Aroma

Buttery fudge and vanilla with char-grilled corn-on-the-cob and toasty grissini-like aromas.

Taste

Light bodied and slight sweet with lashings of buttery vanilla, burnt grain and caramelised barley sugar. Rounded, easy and flavoursome.

Aftertaste

Lingering buttery vanilla with sweet balsa wood, new leather and light spice. Only the general branding puffery stops this whiskey receiving a coveted ‘Recommended’ rating.
