Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonHeavy on berries, almost jamlike. Mainly on blackcurrants, vanilla. The berries grows and grows with time. Dominates. Taste is a bit weird, on berries also, increasingly dominantly so. Taste is a bit young, a bit edgy. Not entirely natural. Hm. But given time it's OK.
Craig DanielsNose: sherry and fruitcake,some slightly sour notes. Palate: cream sherry and some underlying grassiness, some mixed berries. Finish: sweet, velvety, then some slight astringency. Comments: Pleasant enough, but the wood cloaks any Irish character.
