Finished for up to a year in the rarest of all casks, virgin Irish Oak, this is a milestone for Irish Whiskey. A single cask, mainstream whiskey that makes available the flavours of Irish oak to everyone. Each bottle is numbered and traceable to each cask and even to the tree from whence it came. We sustainably fell 140 year-old trees from the ancient oak forests in the mountains around the distillery. This was the beginning of a year long process that ends with an Irish oak hogshead. These special casks are filled with the most quintessentially Irish of whiskeys - pot still. The higher levels of toasted oak and vanilla flavours that Irish oak brings to the liquid complement and balance the classic pot still spices.
Nose: Lots going on here in the nose – raw malt aromas, toasted oak, creamy vanilla notes, dried cherry, molasses and some oak char.
Palate: The herbal notes come out, big time and it is awesome. Crystallized ginger and candied citrus – but some cinnamon and raisins too.
Finish: Big, toasted oaky, herbal (aromatic clove) and more creamy vanilla.
