Overall: This was a treat to try. And when I say treat, I mean it seriously reminded me of the holidays with my family having coffee around the table and snacking on a fruit panettone. Panettone is an Italian type of sweet bread originally from Milan, usually prepared and enjoyed for Christmas and New Year in Western, Southern, and Southeastern Europe as well as in South America, Eritrea, Australia, the United States and Canada.

It's always a great feeling when a certain combination of flavors come together to bring back memories of being together and enjoying company. This tends to happen with quite a few whiskeys I review and I just can't help but get add a little nostalgia to these writeups.
A very easy proof with this marriage of Irish and Bourbon Whiskeys create a wonderful approach and extremely inviting drinkability. Pair that with a great retail price and you just may have yourself a perfect holiday sipper.
I'd like to thank the folks at Keeper's Heart for sending this to the Library. Now, I just need to find that 10 Year!
