Since St Patric's day is coming up i thought it would be nice to show off some Irish Whiskey. So to start off a string of reviews here it is:Greenore Single Grain is yet another unparalleled product from Cooley Distillery (winners of Malt Advocate's Distillery of the Year). Distilled from maize/corn and aged in American oak, it is the ONLY Single Grain Whiskey available from Ireland. This month we are going to enjoy the 8 Year old. The aromas are nuanced—sumptuous—inviting--elegant: Soft vanilla, green apple, corn, white tea, lemon and toasty grains. These clean, fresh smells fall lightly onto your palate in a finespun, oily mouth-feel with flavors of vanilla, marchpane or crème caramel mingled with fruitier tones like an apple or lemon bouchee; preposterously enjoyable to drink. The finish lingers, showing finally some warm baking spices to clean up the palate and insist on another drink.
i also reviewed the 15 year old here . . ..
