Tasting Notes

"This whiskey is much richer and more viscous than their lower proof Premium Irish version. It bears the same sugary, vegetal, berry, malty and smoky notes, with a heavier weight and higher octane. It's somewhat reminiscent of a high proof Old Tom style Gin, without the botanical elements. Finishes very strong, fiery and alcoholic. Even the distillery recommends adding a little water or ice to it to soften the blow."
