Notes from the Distiller:

A style of whiskey that can only be made in Ireland. It is a mixed mashbill whiskey that was once the largest selling style in the world, and is now making a big come back.
This one is single cask, aged in one of the rarest, most flavorful varieties of oak in the world - Irish oak. Due to the long growing season enjoyed in Ireland, Irish oak is unique in terms of taste. It packs in more layers of flavor than other varieties.

The virgin casks soak in so much whiskey that the liquid can only be finished for a year in them (after spending 3 years in American Oak, ex-Bourbon casks).

Each bottle is numbered back through the cask, the batch and even to the 130 year old oak tree felled in the mountains around the distillery.

A truly unique experience in whiskey.

Nose: Sweet and citrus with vanilla, caramel, banana, treacle, with earthy, herbal undertones of oak spices and leather.
Palate: Chewy, warm and buttery, pot still malt and spices, toffeed pears, treacle, cinnamon, nutmeg and distinctive toasted, tannic oak and grapefruit.
Finish: Long with creamy vanilla, almond, forest fruit and toasted Irish oak.

"Creamy and rich, with plenty sweet, oaky aromas alongside layers of toasted grains. Vanilla and stone fruit flavours sit upon a well-rounded palate. The finish is lingering and fruity."

"Hawthorn, apple, caramel, ground almond, shortbread, and finely ground pepper on an alluring nose. Gentle, creamy mouthfeel with caramel, dried apple, a moderate attack of clove and pepper, and a finish of mild spices and bakery treats. Irish oak-finished whiskeys are a rare occurrence, making this a good stepping-stone into the category, though it's mellow by pot still standards."
