Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of pomegranate, cantaloupe, and mango, lemon, green apple, and phyllo dough, pickled ginger, banana bread, and and candied bacon with a fat body and a very long finish with notes of cooked mango rolled in walnut, grilled peaches, cinnamon roll, and banana bread. An incredible example of Irish Whiskey; lush and balanced flavors, extraordinarily well done.

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.
