Category: Irish Blended Whiskey

Date Tasted:

Pale light gold color. Aromas and flavors of buttered porridge, wild flowers and stems, saffron and curry leaves, and pepper and green herbs with a silky, vibrant, fruity medium-full body and a hot, appealing, very long finish manifesting accents of Coleman’s fuel, honeyed rye toast, and nettles finish. An intense and herbal earth Irish whiskey.
