This is a NAS expression from Midleton distillery that’s bottled at 40% ABV.
Nose: Heavy fresh grains with sawdust, dry dessert wine, toffee, and musty cardboard.
Palate: Again, fresh grain notes here with anise, subtle banana, and a damp, musty oak.
Finish: Anise lingers with young grains and oak turning slightly herbal.
Rating: 81/100 – An easy sipper, but not very complex.
Value for the money: This retails around $45 which is a decent price for what you get. Definitely wouldn’t pay anything more than that, and would prefer to see it around $35.
