Before there was whiskey, there was poitín. Poitín was the origin of the species, the original “water of life”. It’s Ireland’s gift to the world, one of the first spirits ever to be distilled.
Creamy and mellow in the mouth and hangs on the tongue with a trace of lychees. There are hints of black, cracked pepper.
A good length of finish, it’s lingering and warming and sweet, if slightly salty. Wait for a comforting, spicy tail.
