Description

Nose

Opening: A burst of bright citrus fruits like lemon and orange peel, along with a touch of peppery spice that awakens the senses.

Underneath: Sweet and creamy notes of vanilla custard and honey emerge, hinting at the time spent in ex-bourbon casks. Some tasters also pick up subtle hints of white chocolate, adding a touch of elegance.

Palate

Initial: A wave of smooth and creamy texture washes over the tongue, followed by a gentle sweetness of butterscotch and toffee. These notes are a clear influence from the bourbon cask aging.

Mid-palate: Earthy fruit flavors like green apple or pear come into play, providing a refreshing counterpoint to the sweetness. Hints of fresh, dry grains, likely from the malted barley component, add a subtle complexity.

Later Sips: A touch of white pepper spice emerges, warming the palate slightly. This peppery character complements the citrus notes from the nose, creating a balanced experience.

Finish

Lingering: The sweetness from the butterscotch and toffee fades gently, leaving behind a subtle oakiness and a hint of lingering fruit. The peppery spice from the mid-palate may also leave a warming sensation.

Overall Impression: McConnell’s Irish Whiskey offers a smooth and easy-drinking experience with a good balance of sweetness, spice, and fruit. The influence of the ex-bourbon casks is evident in the vanilla and butterscotch notes, while the Irish grain whiskey contributes to the overall smoothness.
