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...

Fercullen 10 Year Old Grain

...ferrero roche, caramello koala streams down before good milk chocolate, perfume, bananas, rockmelon, mango, grapes and wheaty apples biscuits. The finish is short, but breaks through and shows us a final splendour of strawberries and red apples dipped in melted chocolate...

Redbreast 21 Year Old

...music of Nina Simone, Sinnerman does not go astray when sipping this whiskey. On the palate we discover a bounty of cherry slice, chocolate drizzled over mango, guava, lychees, tangerines and toasted grapefruit. A backing of passionfruit and old nutmeg keeps the whiskey interesting as we find am old tin of coffee grounds...
