Beverage Testing Institute 92 points - (Tried & True Award)- Deep amber/sepia appearance. Soft, pillowy aromas are stuffed with ripe fruits (quince, banana), baking spice (cinnamon, allspice), toasted marshmallow. Taste profile is long, oily, dry to off-dry, intensely woody, almost resiny but nicely balanced, bold, hearty.
Light amber color. Intricate aromas of dried fruits and nuts and grain drizzled with honey, caramel and delicate baking spices follow through on a silky soft entry to a dryish medium body with superb smoothness, balance, and elegant depth. Finishes with a long, dried cherry and apricot, spice, dusty grain and mineral flourish. A highly polished and flavorful Irish whisky.
