Something really different tonight. Whisky snobs had better click away now…
It’s flavoured Irish whiskey, a blend I suspect. Obviously from Eire rather than Norn’Irn, otherwise it would be called Fockin’ Whiskey.
Orange peel, huge amounts of vanilla, pretty damn sweet. Toffee, some sweetened cinnamon (like a danish pastry).
It’s bottled at 35%, even at 40% it might have been better balanced. It really needs a bit more alcohol to try and counter some of the syrupy sweetness.
Straight, it’s quite palatable, very smooth and very easy to drink. You could certainly make some feckin decent cocktails with it.
