About the Whiskey:
Knappogue Castle 14 year old is the result of a marriage of 14 year old single malts aged in two types of wood: bourbon barrels and Oloroso sherry casks. It is non-chill filtered and bottled at 92 proof in limited quantities.
Tasting Notes:
AROMA: Notes of apple and apricot.
TASTE: Rich in flavor with fruity, nutty, and vanilla notes.
FINISH: Medium-long going from fruity notes to a dry, but pleasant barley finish.

Awards/Reviews
91 Points - Whisky Advocate:
Perfect for drinkers with a Goldilocks complex, this falls between the lemon-favoring 12 year old, and the richer, sherry finished 16 year old, with a nose of sweet mandarin, tropical fruits, fruit pastries, warm banana muffin, barley sugar, and forest honey. Bold, attention-grabbing flavors of orange, honey, vanilla, dried ginger, pepper, and jam-slathered pastries, with caramel, ground almond, and a tantalizing, zesty grapefruit bitterness toward the end." - Jonny McCormick (Winter 2018)

“To me this whiskey embodies the promise of Irish Whiskey. It can stand toe-to-toe with most similar Speyside whiskies and come out even or on top. This is more of the kind of stuff that makes me excited about the Irish Whiskey category and is quite often what I recommend to folks who want to get into it. The finish should be made into breath mints or gum or a candle; it’s just delightful. I can’t recommend this whiskey enough.”
