Drumshanbo’s gin is one of the best offerings to have come out of the gin explosion of the last few years, so I decided to see if their foray into the whiskey world held up. And…it does, more or less, if not in as impressive a fashion. The nose is sweet and rich - birthday cake batter, strawberry jam, wildflower honey, brioche toast, marzipan. It’s a fairly impressive nose. The palate, however, lands a little more flat. The sweet, cakey notes override everything else; there’s none of the subtlety or intricacy found on the nose. It’s enjoyable, but hard not to think this dram could be more than it is.
