Jared,
I got this in a sampler. It was delicious! I wish i could find a bottle somewhere!

Kiril,
Very very good taste with little bit of water to kill aroma of the extra alcohol.

Robert,
Amazing. For a 53 proof whiskey it does not feel or taste alcohol
 
Lawrence
Lawrence,
Nice cask strength. Honey and barley with spice

Pretty good, smoother than I expected
 
Craig
Craig,
Extremely smooth with a nice bite to finish. Tasty honey to start with a nice, spicy finish. This was the favorite of the tasting box.

Tony,
Cast strength aren’t my favorite. However, this is one of the better ones I have tried. I’m glad I got to try it.
 
Harrison
Harrison,
Understanding its cask strength all I get out of this is spicy malt barley even though the nose eludes to something more sweet. It doesn’t finish very strong either, but you can taste a bit of cereal at the end. I would skip this one.
 
Jason
Jason,
A pine and cedar wood smell on the nose. Smooth for the strength slight burn with the cedar flavor gives away to a cherry sweetness, with a long finish as expected for this ABV.
 
Stefanie
Stefanie,
It gives me the impression of your favorite cologne or perfume turned to drinkable form. It is harsh at first but after that first sip it smooths out a little.

Great flavor

It’s probably the best Irish whiskey. It’s good but not as Scotch
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Good Smooth start with floral notes. Finish was a bit strong for my palate.

Zeer lekker en subtiel

Spicy and a little harsh. More of an effect whiskey vs a sipping tasteful whiskey.

Spacey

This is the 4th cask strength taster I have tried. So far it’s the only one I have liked. I would definitely buy a bottle.
 
Grant
Grant,
Good taste. Just ok for me
 
Patrick
Patrick,
This was very good, the flavor of white chocolate midway was very distinct and great contrast to the spice at the end. There's a lot of floral notes that I tasted but I felt they were a bit strong. Overall sweet and spicy work wonders here (I'm not a big floral guy though, so this wouldn't be a regular 'go-to' for me"

Mike,
Complex nose leading to heat and spicy palate leading to honey notes with honey and ginger in the finish
