Day Fourteen: Irish Whiskey Advent Calendar Countdown
DEC 14 – The Irishman Single Malt 40% Cost = $50-$60 Score: B
Nose: rich, orchard fruits, apples, vanilla, peaches, honey, and slight touch of cinnamon
Taste: apricot, dark sugars, ginger spice, pepper, dark chocolate, wood tannins
Finish: medium overall – nothing off-putting here
Overall: well-balanced overall – solid dram; non-age statement, but supposedly around 10 years old
