This Single Malt is distilled by Locke's in Ireland.

Tasting notes:

Caramel fruit candies, dry sweet grasses, mild nuttiness on the nose. Sweet tangy dandelions, gentle grassy licorice on the palate.

  • Locke's 8 years old, 40% abv

    Sweet bananas with red fruit and candied almonds on the nose. Soft, round mouthfeel. Light, gentle sweet dry grasses on the palate. Medium short finish.

    More full bodied than the Greenore 8 yo single grain or Writer's Tears, both of which I tasted at the same time. A pleasant surprise for an 8 year old.

    Lovely aromas of sweet caramel with memories of marshmallows on the nose. Very gentle mouthfeel of candied fruit with a velvety touch of licorice on the palate. Medium finish.
