Day Eleven: Irish Whiskey Advent Calendar Countdown

DEC 11 – The Silkie Blended Irish Whiskey    40%   Cost = $40-50   Score:  C-

Nose:  mulled apples, toffee, nutmeg, pear, wood, herbal quality, mintiness – menthol

Taste:  flat on the palate, bland old caramels, spice, thin

Finish:  short finish – quickly disappears, some tannin astringency

Overall:  a constrained dram – nothing to get excited about for me, would not revisit after my first taste
