Brilliant light gold color. Aromas of light honey on yogurt, rice cakes, fig, lemon zest, and gooseberry preserve with a satiny, crisp, dryish light-to-medium body and a warming, complex, long dried orange, black tea, dried strawberry, and grass clippings finish. A tasty and light-on-its-feet Irish Single Malt.

Single malt Irish whiskeys, like their Scottish cousins, are whiskies that are only made with malted barley. They are usually triple distilled through both column and pot stills, although there are a few exclusively pot-distilled brands.
