Category: Irish Blended Whiskey

Date Tasted:
Country: Ireland

Gold color. Aromas and flavors of lacquer, orange blossom, rice candy, raisin, and baked apple with a silky, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light body and a smooth, amusing, relaxed finish that exhibits notes of melon, candied nuts, dark toast, and biscuit finish. A rock solid Irish whiskey with delicate nuance on the nose and silky sweetness on the palate.
