Greg Dillon Notes
Stuart Irvine Notes
Overall a good quality Irish single malt. Solid, distinct flavours from the spirit have been carefully managed through maturation. Classic North coast flavours and respectful, but not “over the top”, sherry maturation have made this a very tasty “go to” dram. For me the pricing is just about spot on and this is a whiskey that’s well worth looking in to.
