I buy expensive whiskey to make the employee following me in the liquor store feel bad.

    Nose: Peat, rubber, typical Irish herbal notes of sage basil and parsley. Strong peach and orange creamsicle once you adapt to the peat smell. Caramel, butterscotch, and toffee also appear. It then transitions to violets and bluebell flowers along with some charcoal and light green apple. Very dynamic and active nose. Taste: Very strong herbal and floral with moderate peat. The finish explodes in fruitiness with honey, pear, apples, peaches, plums, and light orange and lime leaf. Maltiness also comes in with some dense caramel and orange syrup. Light minty finish also occurs on some sips.

    Nose: typical MGP nose. Rye spice, caramel apple, light vanilla. Corn dust permeates throughout the background. Light clay / bitter apricot. Taste: surprisingly easy sipper. Not much on the front palette but the aftertaste is strong with caramel apple, vanilla, cardamom, cinnamon and light oak. Apple and oak really come to the front if you let it sit in your mouth a little. Rye spice starts to come out after a bit as well as peaches and tobacco. Water intensifies the caramel apple and oak.

    Tasted & nosed over two medium ice cubes. Nose: very heavy bitter orange and worm wood. Cedar and hops are also present on the nose. Licorice and a faint dill as well. Nose opens up with more spicy notes after the first sip Taste: Very sweet with a strong spicy and bitter finish. Intense bitter citrus notes. Finish is long and dry. Sort of a midway point between Aperol and Campari. Would probably be better suited as an Aperol replacement rather than Campari.

    Nose: orange, green apple, oak, spiced chocolate, vanilla cream, caramel, Taste: sweet burnt caramel and chocolate with light apple and butter cookie. Ends with the Jameson floral honey oak note. Less flavorful than the IPA cask. Stout seems to lend itself more to texture than flavor

    3.5 out of 5 stars
    Nose: hops, floral, lemon, grapefruit, green apple,honeydew melon, icing sugar, caramel. Sharp orange juice. Taste: light hops and honeysuckle with a background of butter cookies and apple. Heavy hops and pine are quick to take over with marshmallows and bright unripe citrus. Ends with an oaky honey. If you dislike hops and IPAs stay away but if you don’t mind it makes for an interesting flavor
