Natterjack Irish Whiskey

...American Whiskey soaked pipe tobacco. Our spice drifts softly down over the top of it all, black pepper, cinnamon and a light puff of nutmeg, all well complimenting the taste of the whiskey and a mouth feel of melted ice cream. Our finish is just as nice, soft, surprisingly delicate and long, milky way chocolate bars...

If we delve further then the sweetness of these fruits drop off and cooked sugars start to comes through, with demerara sugar melted over baked apples and juicy roast figs...

Dublin Liberties 10 Year Old, Copper Alley

...boiled sweets, wine grapes, heavy plums, and orange toffee my way. I was struggling to hold onto everything when some rhubarb candy waddled over and sat on my tongue, and invited some maraschino cherries to hop on as well...
