12 Year Old Single Malt

NV/MV Ireland Carlow
94 Points

Rich amber color. Bold aromas of toasted fruitcake, praline, and creme brulee with a supple, fruity-yet-dry medium-full body and a lush, warming finish with notes of sweet baking spices, roasted chestnuts, pepper, grain husk, and mineral ore. A fantastic sipping whiskey.

Powerful aromas of overripe banana are balanced by citrus pith, wet stones and campfire smoke. Once in the mouth it is semisweet with banana continuing to shine through alongside dark cherry and cinnamon. A delicate, yet deep and tropical finish ensues.

Pale amber color. Vibrant aromas of dried pears and peaches, suede, floral honey and flan with a silky, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a graceful, cream of wheat, creamy vanilla, and peppery spice finish. Superb flavor and style.

Distinct wild clover and candied grapefruit peel aromas mingle with more classic toasted oats and vanilla bean notes. In the mouth it is rich and honeyed with robust flavors of tropical fruits, toasted walnuts and dried herbs. These characteristics lead into a long, smooth finish.

Almond-tinged and quite floral at first sniff. Orange blossom and toasted oats are rounded off by a sherry-like brininess. Textured, bready and honeyed in the mouth before giving way to a finish that, while toasty in character, displays fresh stone fruits.

Intense aromas of toasted oak, shortbread, and honeysuckle along with a subtle touch of clove. In the mouth smoke comes to the front and then recedes into pleasant honey and brown sugar. Honey and brown sugar resonate into the finish.
