This is a very good "pure pot still" (or "single pot still" referring to a style of Irish whiskey where a mix of malt and unmalted barley are distilled in the same pot still) whiskey with 15 years ageing that gives flavors and complexity. Sweet aromas are detected with marzipan, caramel, sandalwood,..

This is an impressive whiskey aged for 32 years! in ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks.
