93 points and 'Top 50 Spirits 2012,' Wine Enthusiast: "From county Cork comes this bartender favorite. Look for a vibrant golden color and enticing honeysuckle and buttery brioche aroma. This whiskey feels soft and sets the mouth watering with lightly smoky notes tapering off to jazzy layers of honey, dried fruit, cinnamon and ginger. abv: 40%. (Mar 2012)"

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!
