Description

Aroma

The initial whiff is a delightful invitation. A wave of sweetness greets you first, with prominent notes of honey and vanilla. Imagine opening a fresh jar of golden honey – the sweetness is there, but it’s not cloying. Hints of vanilla bean might also emerge, adding a touch of elegance and warmth to the aroma. This sweetness is a signature of Irish whiskey, and Proclamation uses it effectively to create a welcoming first impression.

Palate

The first sip confirms the promise of the aroma – a smooth and easy-drinking experience. The honey and vanilla flavors translate beautifully onto the palate, coating your tongue with a familiar and pleasant sweetness. Don’t be surprised if a hint of nuttiness emerges alongside the sweetness. This nutty character comes from the grain whiskies used in the blend, adding a touch of depth and complexity that keeps the flavor profile interesting. Despite the sweetness, the overall impression remains smooth and well-balanced.

Midpalate

As the whiskey lingers on your tongue, a subtle shift might occur. The sweetness takes a backseat, allowing other elements to emerge. A touch of fruitiness might appear, like a fleeting note of apple or pear. This fruitiness is likely a result of the sherry-finished malt whiskey used in some variations of the Proclamation blend (according to some sources). It adds a hint of intrigue without overwhelming the core character.

Finish

The finish of Proclamation Blended Irish Whiskey is where it’s surprising complexity comes into play. It departs from the initial sweetness, offering a dry and slightly crisp character. Imagine a hint of oak spice, like a gentle sprinkle of cinnamon or a touch of clove. This dryness balances the sweetness from the first sip and ensures a clean and refreshing conclusion. The nuttiness from the grain whiskies might linger as well, adding a touch of warmth to the finish.
