Medium amber hue; some sediment spotted. The initial couple of sniffings within three minutes of the pour reveal dry to off-dry scents of butterscotch, maple, and oak; additional time in the glass allows for more and deeper aromas to emerge, most prominent are peanut butter, road tar, beans (as in, legumes) and dry breakfast cereal; a complete, complex bouquet that keeps unfolding with aeration. The palate entry tastes are full-bodied and significantly sweeter and oilier than the aroma; the midpalate stage displays a beany, oily, buttered popcorn flavor profile that's really delicious and robust. The aftertaste is long, warming, and oily, with a trace of sweet oak. Something of a cult legend in Ireland; a dandy example of pure pot still whiskey. Highly Recommended!
