Member Ratings and Notes
n: golden straw, peach, hint of spearmint gum. Dry earth, hard honey candy, and clean linens. 

t: floral (dry white rose petal), chewy malt, and dried grapefruit. Still gentle overall (almost subtle), but with a dense flavor throughout.  Complexity shows in the rich finish and the ABV% really makes this a good one.  If you're not an Irish whiskey fan, this might change your mind.  Blind, it would be difficult for me to ID this as Irish Whiskey.  [B, almost B+]
