  • Excerpt: It is rich and chewy and finishes with a spice-filled aftertaste. Try to resist consuming the whiskey quickly; it is best enjoyed slow and steady.

  • Excerpt: It’s obscenely good, but it’s hard for me to call anything priced at $250 a great value so let me put it this way. If you’re looking for one of the best examples of Irish whiskey out there and you happen to have a budget of $250 then I would highly recommend this.

  • Excerpt: This is a very good Irish whiskey. It blossoms with the developed fruit notes and sweet notes that it provides. The age is apparent as you drink this whiskey as the notes are developed and well refined. This is a special occasion whiskey that should be shared with friends.

    Huge brown butter, toffee, rising dough, apples, strudel brown sugar, maple and cinnamon. Oh man.

    Moderate mouthfeel thats pure caramel apple, with brown sugar, light tobacco and a sweat bready character in tow.

    Long, syrupy, rich and lovely finish. Maple, cocoa, apple cinnamon and a touch of toffee. Pure dessert without becoming cloying, with tons of sweetness, oak and spice, to stay interesting.
