Originally launched for the travel retail market, this 12 year old Irish blend is full of sweetness and sublimely smooth.
Nose: Scones with clotted cream and vinous strawberry jam, sultanas, dates and digestive biscuits. Linseed and honey.
Palate: Light and soft with hints of gentle spices (nutmeg, allspice), a touch of honey and creamy fruits in yoghurt.
Finish: Medium length with a little oaky/nutty bittersweetness.
Overall: A blend of malt whiskey, pot still whiskey and grain whiskey matured in bourbon and Sherry casks, all of which is evident here.
