Roe & Co Irish Whiskey, 45%

Review #574
This is a blended Irish whiskey and it was released in 2017 by Diageo. It is matured in ex-Bourbon casks, with a high proportion of first fill casks. Brown sugar and wood spices in the smell. Hints of oak and a fair amount of vanilla in the end.

Loads of vanilla in the taste, with hints of burned oak. Sweet pears, some coconut joins in, and the brown sugar is back. It is basically the same in the finish, but that really doesn’t matter here. It is medium long but the dark oaky and sugary notes covers the mouth beautifully.

A great blend, and the Bourbon casks are really doing a great job. I really enjoy the spiciness given by the wood! This would go perfect with a light dessert like vanilla ice cream. I will give this 83/100 (20/21/21/21).
