    Possibly Rlc. PoP 'Gleneyrie's Green Giant' rather than 'Emerald Isle' but almost certainly Ports of Paradise or one of its progeny.

    Or it could be a Hawaiian Passion Carmela. However, HPC usually has lots of clusters and very fragrant, and since you're not sure ... I'd go with Ports of paradise because it most resembles my Ports of Paradise.

    Here's a Hawaiian Passion Carmela:

    It must be Ports of Paradise, I have seen several since posting this link and it looks like them, to a tee. Thank you!
