Clean, fresh. hint of linseed. Nuts. Cake
By far the biggest of this selection. Assertive and complex, with lots of development and seemingly infinite dimension. Ginger cake, brazil nuts, treacle
Licorice-like sherry notes
Delicious, soothing, contemplative. A great whiskey. Makes me want to get on a plane to Dublin immediately

Jim Murray

With Green Spot, the most impressive of Irish noses. There’s a fruity, almost rye-like quality, and deft, honeyed sweetness, a touch of sherry, cream soda vanilla and some peppery notes. Breathtaking
The flavours take off in all directions. Spiciness and a pot still backbone softened by sherry. Very firm with some toffee
Oily, some licorice and enormous sweet-sour complexity. Spicy and long
Not quite perfect, but still an astonishing experience

Peter Mulryan

The very Irish nose tweak of resin, sherry and linseed.
Fat and oily. Layers of satin ginger, silk honey and hints of spicy liquorice.
Vanilla pods and marsala.
This is what real pure pot still whiskey is all about, a glorious contradiction of soft fruit and firm grain, oily seeds and sweet wood. World beating stuff.

Dave Broom

Intense and full blooded. Pot still richness: citrus oils, hot sealing wax, leather, tobacco, tea, maraschino, overripe fruits, marzipan. Exemplary.
Ridiculously big. Oozes into the mouth and erupts. Spices galore to the finish. Oily and unctuous.
Long, rich, oily.
Whiskey covering the entire spectrum of aroma, taste, feel, flavour. World class

All I can add is that it is my favorite. Redbreast for full body, Knapogue Castle for lighter body and the yuppies can keep the blends.
