      For the age of these whiskies, I'm impressed so far. I like the idea of terroir, but I can say that it makes it overly distinguishable. Reminds me of a very light scotch. Nose: Honey, cereal, ethanol, musty cedar (but not bad, I like it) Palate: Citrus fruit, honey, cereal, ethanol Finish: Sweetness fades into a slightly spicy bitterness Mouthfeel: Buttery like an oaky Chardonnay

      N: honey, allspice, buttery pastry, springtime. P: creamy, mint, spicy, brown sugar, brine. F: woody & spicy. This is magical, surprising, and utterly delicious.

      Vanilla and oily bananas and biscuits on the nose. Gives way to a sweet and peppery palate full of vanilla and a creamy mouthfeel. Which then becomes an almost spicy finish which doesn’t linger very long.

      Butterscotch bomb! I get big caramel and butterscotch notes with Gaia. It’s a young whiskey, you have to let it breathe a long time. Wish they would get some more age on their whiskey, you can taste the youth but Gaia is the best so far in my opinion.

      Have been excited to try Waterford. I’ve never had an Irish single malt and they’re doing some really cool (obsessive) tracking of their production. You can get lost on their site buried in farmers, barley type, yeast strains, soil, fermentation, and on and on and on...they even have recordings of farm sounds (seriously). It’s pretty complex for a whisky that’s only been aged just under 4 years. It does taste slightly young but it’s exciting to imagine where it will taste with a older age statement. N - light fruits, grain forward, citrus zest, slightly floral T - pear, dusty barley, cherry, some pepper F - oily finish and butterscotch sweet Would be fun to do a tasting of their others side by side to get the full “terroir” experience. Since I got a bottle went with Gaia which is a mix of multiple farms. It’s very tasty, maybe slightly overpriced for what you are getting now. But wanted to try the 1.1 to have a frame of reference for down the road. Waterford’s vision statement on their site ends with the fact they want to “create not just the most compelling Irish whisky, but the world’s most profound single malt.” Ambitious. I’ll enjoy trying their whisky over time as they embark on that journey.

      Aroma is waxy with a strong buttery frosting note paired with a strong note of apples and that same Farmer’s Market aroma I got in the Rathclogh with tinges of toffee and notes of minerality; Palate has the Malt showing up heavily and starts to remind me of my beloved Roughstock but not as complex; Finish holds the true promise of what this will become with age and maturity and hits a nice pace of earthy/farmy, sweet and fruity.
