BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
"The nose is delicate, but pretty straightforward with aromas of buttered popcorn and banana bread; a hint of something a little musty follows. Odd. The whiskey tastes a little hot at first but then gives way to classic Irish cereal notes and then to tropical fruits, though nothing distinctive about the fruits. The finish is short and biscuity. This is definitely an entry-level Irish whiskey, and does that job reasonably well. Nothing memorable but nothing very offensive, either."
