St Patrick’s Distillery (Cork) Tasting Notes

Posted: July 1, 2016 in Irish Whiskey, St Patrick's Distillery

St Patrick’s Irish Whiskey, Oak Aged 40%

Tasted: Apr 2016

Nose: Soft supple barley and white fruit aromas with a good dollop of honey. Fresh, herbal grain comes through along with sweet coconut and toasty oak.

Palate: Very grain dominated with dried fruit and coconutty oak. The heavy oak begins to bitter on the middle but a touch of honey and barley attempts to balance.

Finish: Crisp and remaining grainy with lingering chocolate, coconut, and coffee notes.

Conclusion: A pleasant blend, although I would have liked to have seen some malt character on the palate.
