Greg Dillon Notes
Michael Foggarty Notes
There is a proportion of the whiskey that has had a long
maturation and the classic flavour of aged whiskey jumps right out at you, ripe banana, bold citrus and pineapple.
You wouldn’t even know there was grain and younger malts whiskeys in this. The blender has displayed
their amazing talent and are onto a winner.
