Tasted: Ale & Whisky

By / Wine + Drinks / March 13th, 2014 / 3

In honour of Saint Paddy’s Day, we’ll move away from the world of wine today and focus our attention on an Ale and a Whisky. Neither is native to the emerald isle, but isn’t it the thought that counts?

Bottoms up!

Review Summary:

Cascade and Perle hops add to the appealing floral and yellow-fruit aromas. Beautifully balanced, harmonious malty, citrus and vaguely tropical fruit flavours culminate in a long, nutty, dry-bitter finish. A classic!

Review Summary:

Pale brownish brass colour. Interesting nose of smoky peat with pineapple, apple and citrus notes. Luscious in the mouth, full-bodied, sweet with flavours of ripe apples and slightly hot alcohol.


Looking at the small things that make life great and the people who create them.
