Review and Tasting

Sampled on 22/09/2015

Appearance

Clear, mid golden amber.

Aroma

Toffee, vanilla fudge with underlying freshly baked brown bread, apples, pears and Christmassy spice. Faint aromas of hazelnut, coffee, cacao, lavender and fresh green hops.

Taste

Slightly sweet with a creamy mouthfeel. Milk chocolate, vanilla fudge, floral notes, nutty sherry and Christmassy cinnamon and nutmeg spice.

Aftertaste

Long chocolaty finish with coffee, butterscotch and gentle spice.

Overall

Irish whiskey and stout are often consumed alongside each other. They are a great match. So it’s perhaps not surprising that finishing whiskey in stout seasoned casks produces a slightly sweet, wonderfully rounded whiskey with distinctive chocolaty notes.
