Key Information

Long before there was Irish whiskey there was poitin {potcheen}. Every distilled drink across the world from rum to gin, to vodka or absinthe, you name it, can trace its ancestry straight back to poitin.

Nose: Slight in nature and might fool you. If you didn't know better you might sense a faint Riesling fragrance, no less. Oak, berried fruit, gooseberries and blackcurrants are in there. The Mountain Strength holds true with that extra headiness of the high alcohol. Where as a slight zest of orange and blueberry sweetness comes through in the Sherry Cask Finish.

Taste: Creamy and mellow in the mouth and hangs on the tongue with a trace of lychees. There are hints of black, cracked pepper, especially so in the Mountain Strength. Some dried fruits show up in all three poitins, with dried apricots featuring in the Sherry Cask Finish. Touches of vanilla and toasty oak throughout also. A very full flavoured poitin that goes down nicely.
