Gold color. Aromas and flavors of apple cobbler and baked peach, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger, and honey, and kola nut and butter cream with a round, vibrant, dry medium-to-full body and a tingling, very complex, medium-long finish with notes of apple pie crust with extra baking spice, vanilla cream and cocoa nibs, green savory lift on the finish, and raisined fruit. A delicious and lingering Irish Single Malt full of flavor and matured with care; delicious on its own but would be lovely with a single ice cube or a few drops of water.

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.
