Wine Enthusiast 95 points - Intended as a tribute to Midleton Master Distiller Barry Crockett, this delicate, silky whiskey has a golden hue and a lovely fresh-apple scent. On the palate, apple and ripe pear meld with butterscotch and a touch of banana on the long finish. Meant for savoring straight up.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - (Tried & True Award)- Soft-focus orange color is pretty. Loads of ripe fruits explode in the ambrosial bouquet, in particular, ripe pear, spiced apple, quince. Taste-wise, the flavor stage highlights the honeyed aspect that’s barely perceptible in the aroma but comes alive in the taste and finish. Classy, highly sensual. (Mar 2015)
