The nose on 43.4% expression is very floral with some wheaty breakfast biscuits and spicy notes.  The taste is very smooth with baked spiced apples (maybe even slightly burnt) caramel and honey.  The finish has some slow building heat along with some Bovril (salty / meaty) notes.  Reminded me of good Texas barbeque brisket with strong spice bark.  Overall a ittle too much burnt, salty and bitter notes with not enough sweetness to balance it for me.

    Nose is sweet with licorice and lemon wood polish. The taste is smooth with a light mouth feel and tastes of honey, banana, caramel all lightly spiced with pepper. The finish has lemon peel and is ever so slightly perfumed. Very approachable and drinkable Irish blend.  To be honest the only thing I dont like about this is vaguely offensive name.
