My lovely wife continues to enjoy the Irish category so I continue to add new offerings that appear in our local shop to the shelf. There were several age statements of this brand and the 10 year seemed the most interesting to me at a mid level price point. Let's see how it goes... Nose is very softly sweet. The sherry finish shines with some prominent berry notes. First sip is a little unexpected. Off the bat I am getting an almost cherry cola taste. On the edges there is some vanilla and a slight cinnamon burn. The finish is mellow like a lingering cherry cinnamon cobbler. Let's start by saying this is different. Maybe it's just my limited Irish experience, but this comes off very fruit and cola forward which is not something I have seen in this category. That being said I am really enjoying this pour. The finish definitely takes center stage almost to the point of a mixed drink. I would see this being polarizing to some, but since I love variety I would definitely recommend a bottle. At the price point it gets a little nudge up in my overall scoring as a decent deal.
65.0 USD per Bottle
