Taste A soft, spicy, sweet introduction develops into a rich balance of green apple, pear and red berries with cinnamon and clove. A fresh, grassy succulence along with some charred oak add the finishing touch.

Finish Long with the soft sweet fruity notes giving way to a delicate wood and barley balance.

Nose Distinctly rich in Pot Still spices and aromatic herbs. Succulent red bell peppers, black peppercorns and cinnamon combine perfectly with marzipan, mandarin orange and green tea. All laid upon a background of charred American oak.

Taste The initial sweet vanilla mouth coating quickly becomes enriched by the Pot Still spices balanced by some zesty citrus notes. Further complexity is added by some tannins associated with the charred wood.

Finish Long and satisfying with a nutty combination of wood and barley.

Cask #40219 [46.0% ABV]

Date of Bonding 29 April 1999, exclusive to James Fox, Grafton St, Dublin

Nose Crisp cereal notes of barley combine with delicate spices typical of this style of Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey. The charred oak and light tannins, of the ex-bourbon barrel, combine effortlessly with a touch of coconut oil, marshmallow and newly mown lawn.

Taste A sweet initial mouth coating evolves into a full rich tribute to a top grade American oak barrel. Creamy vanilla balances with the more earthy flavours of charred oak. While a touch of green apple and ripening banana add to the complexity.

Finish Pleasantly long with barley grains lingering as the rich flavours subside.

For about six hours in early October the world was brought to a standstill. However, it wasn’t the outbreak of a global pandemic that spread panic, but the simultaneous crash of Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram.
