Bright light gold color. Fruity aromas and flavors of white tea with honey, fragrant asian pears, geranium, peaches in cream, and sweet coconut sticky rice with a round, crisp, fruity medium body and a warming, complex, very long finish that exhibits nuances of honey wheat scone, caraway and dill finish.

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.
