Three Crowns. A peated vintage blend of selected aged malt and grain whiskeys with a subtle wisp of smoke. Ireland’s Perfect Blended Whiskey, World Whiskies Awards 2019.
Nose: The lightest possible phenol drifts over the nose like glider over the Antrim coast. Quiet and barely noticeable unless you search for it, but what it surveys is moderately beautiful.
Palate: Stunning texture – a mixture of light ulmo honey and mocha makes for the friendliest and most beautiful delivery and follow through. The deft smoke drifts about without portfolio.
Finish: Long, moderately fruity now, with a beautiful balance of stone fruits and sherry influence, which linger delightfully before after all giving approach to wealthy mocha and that wonderful final kiss of smoke.
