Gold medal winner at the 2021 Irish Whiskey Awards in the 'Blended With Age Statement' category. Tasted from a sample and it could be an off night for my senses as I thought this was nowhere near as good as I remembered it. The nose holds up with a bit of juicy fruit chewing gum, pear, stewed apple, raisin and a delicate cardboard mustiness. The palate is fruity and malty, with light salt and spice but it is maybe a touch too tannic. Last time round I scored this 4 stars, but it doesn't merit it tonight.
