Copeland Merchants Quay Blended Irish Whiskey (Miniature 50ml)
- Country of Produce: Ireland
- Whiskey Type: Blend
- ABV: 40%
- Bottle Volume: 5cl
A distinctly unique blend of three whiskeys – grain whiskey, double distilled and triple distilled malts – aged in four different casks and bottled at 40% ABV.
Working in collaboration with Brian Watts, Master Distiller at The Great Northern Distillery, Dundalk, Copeland have created a unique blended Irish whiskey, signalling a taste of things to come while we wait patiently for their malt and pot-still whiskeys to mature.
The grain whiskey has been matured for 12 months in a virgin American oak barrel, then transferred to a re-char bourbon cask for the remaining 24 months. The double distilled malt has been matured in an American first-fill bourbon cask and the triple distilled malt matured in an Oloroso sherry butt.
The result is a smooth, rich whiskey with an easy, delectable finish which can be enjoyed many different ways. Try it neat, with a splash or water or as part of your favourite whiskey cocktail.
Nose: Toffee apple, dark berries, vanilla, clove spice with hints of cedar
