I kept passing on this, but it was at a friend's shop and I just wanted to grab something and it made sense. 140, a bit much but not bad. Nose - I really like how the irish have this jammy note with the pot still character. This one however up front is all kinds of crazy fruits. Think a waxy citrus lime, but there's a bit more to it. Toasted oak but more like you'd get on a buttered toast than some of these over the top american craft toasted bottles. I start to get hints of a jolly rancher, some kind of hybrid of pink and green without the sour. Now I'm getting more and more strawberry, even some cream. There are 4-5 fruit flavors I can't explain or just don't know. Really fruit froward. Taste - More creamy, oak, and still all those fruits. Rich mouth feel, good upfront flavor. And a nice but simple and dull finish, all be it some nice irish spice. A darn good whisky that I wasn't expecting given some reviews. I think this is just fine. I never had the blue spot, need to try it, but I'm happy with this guy. Would like it for less, but the yellow spot is over 100 and it isn't half as good as this. I'll give this is very strong 2.5. Again 2.0 is average. This is well above that but I save 3.0 for something a bit more special. This is a bit short of that for me.
