Joe,
Greatest glass I’ve had in a long time. Highly recommend for all occasions.
 
Ronan
Ronan,
Enjoyable, not too sweet. Has toasted, dark notes. I liked it at first but it lost something as I finished it.
 
Sean
Sean,
Very smooth.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Disappointed. Reminded me of Peaty scotch instead of Irish whiskey. At least it was only a sample.
 
Robert
Robert,
Good, not amazing but altogether drinkable
 
Philip
Philip,
Flavors or maple and honey, smooth on the tongue and a pleasant lasting finish. I hope Flaviar makes this available for purchase.
 
Chris
Chris,
Not a fan at all. Very unpleasant middle and finish. Thank god for the red breast.
 
Lawrence
Lawrence,
Complex taste of vanilla, honey and zest with a finish of pepper and spice
 
Mark
Mark,
Smokier than the flavor wheel indicated.
 
Rafael
Rafael,
I liked this one, not strong, nice flavour
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Horrible backend
 
Brian
Brian,
Strong notes of oak and the kind of woody flavor that reminds me of a scotch whisky. The next few sips really bring out the honey and a bit of spice. Overall a solid sipping whiskey, and unlike many of the other Irish ones I’ve tried.
 
Mehdi
Mehdi,
There is nothing to shout about but I love this as a whiskey that doesn't require my attention to drink. Light on the nose with dominant vanilla, oak and orange smell. Light body with medium zesty finish. There is a light peat taste that I enjoy as well.
 
MICHAEL
MICHAEL,
I enjoyed it no end, will be purchasing again
 
Keith
Keith,
Tastes almost peaty... some sweetness and spicy or zestyness as well, but it's lack of smoothness as well as the peat make it difficult to enjoy.
 
MICHAEL
MICHAEL,
Smokey and dark tasting despite the light color
 
Deven
Deven,
Wife loved it, I thought it was just ok
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Very Scotchy, I am not a Scotch fan.
 
Craig
Craig,
Had this in my latest tasting box and chose this one first. Nice flavor with oaky start and spicy finish. Had a bit of a bite and not the smoothest dram...at least for me. Went down pretty easy though and had me wishing I had some more to sample!
 
Michael
Michael,
Strong scent of citrus on the nose. Heavy black pepper note on the taste. Too much pepper taste for my liking.
 
Brett
Brett,
It’s a very nice Whiskey.. not harsh on the Sip down, very balanced with nice smoky citrus flavor
 
Harrison
Harrison,
I love this flavor. You get a lot of smokey toasted-ness with some orange peel mixed in. Very unique profile
 
Jason
Jason,
I’m really wondering if this is peated more than 10% it takes over the flavor profile, had to drown in ice to finish a sample. Not my cup of tea.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Overpowering Smokey oak flavor in the beginning. Smooth, smooth finish, but wouldn’t get rid of that spicy oak flavor.
 
Tony
Tony,
Not my favorite. Got more spice than Vanilla.
 
Owen
Owen,
Takes a minute for the oak to come out but it is tasty and the spice is pretty good as well
 
Ron
Ron,
Aroma: citrus zest and oak Taste: good balance with spicy oak and maybe some peat Finish: peppery
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Very good! Spicy and oaky and sweet overall! It is honestly very good, it has the perfect spice to go over with a bit of ice
 
Todd
Todd,
It's been a while since I've had this. But it would have to be my favorite Irish whiskey bar none.
 
Mike
Mike,
Good honey sweetness on the nose, followed by the hint of spicy peat with a good but short finish
 
Brett
Brett,
Good, but couldn’t taste the vanilla and honey notes. Not as smooth as many of the other offerings
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a classic, balanced, 'Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey with a fruity birth; while a sweet & woody life; that leads to a quick & gentle death.
