An 8 year old single grain whiskey from Ireland! This won Gold (Best in Class) three years running at the International Wine and Spirits Competition between 2008 and 2010. Greenore is distilled at the Cooley distillery.
Nose: Lemon sponge, honeyed cereal, vanilla and a little caramel. Toasted oak, banana and tropical fruit. Fairly light, but full of flavour – very nice indeed!
Palate: Sweet, smooth vanilla before spicy oak comes in. Touches of menthol and coconut ice.
Finish: Long with maple and pecan, milk chocolate and a hint of salinity.
Overall: A sensational grain whiskey this, top stuff!
