  • Publication: Whisky Advocate
  • Excerpt: Fizzy, effervescent candies pop on the palate and tongue. A medium-length finish, the mint diminishing to leave cinnamon and a little charred oak. A fine discovery.

  • Publication: Distiller
  • Excerpt: The finish delivers toffee, dry oak, and spicy grain with a surprisingly, bitter-asphalty aftertaste, which at least encourages another sip to remove it, but brings down the overall appraisal.

  • Publication: The Whiskey Wash
  • Excerpt: The physical sensation is followed by an evening out of the liquid’s smoother side across the palate, bringing along the flavors of vanilla, honeycomb, and a finish with notes of Christmas spice, Medjool date, and a big, lingering oak presence. It definitely burns and dries at various times making it a slower sipper, which is ok, as it’s a joy to savor and contemplate.

  • Publication: Modern Thirst
  • Excerpt: Not what I expected, a different Irish whiskey that touches on many senses; pleasant overall with the price reflecting the casks used to finish.

  • Publication: Wine Enthusiast
  • Excerpt: It's markedly soft on the palate, with most of the flavor on the drying finish: an intriguing mix of plum skin, unsweetened chocolate, honey and a touch of clove.
