In Issue 3 of 3 of Fercullen's The Estate Series, the makers conclude the journey of exploration with this new limited-edition blended whiskey.
The trumpeting welcome of the Powerscourt Estate's Chorus Gate is a fitting finale to this Estate Series trilogy, heralding a Fercullen Single Malt marriage of Bourbon- and Amarone-matured whiskeys, some of the first whiskey distilled in Wicklow in over a century. This release has been inspired by the craftsmanship of the many enchanting gateways of the world-renowned Powerscourt Gardens.
As you savour the whiskey sip by sip, let yourself be transported to the Estate and the intricate designs of the Venetian Gates, a testament to the ingenuity of the artisans that created them. Just as the gates are the perfect union of form and function, the whiskey embodies the perfect blend of tradition and innovation.
Fercullen's whiskey makers meticulously craft and distil, using time-honoured techniques and the finest ingredients, resulting in a smooth, complex and unforgettable flavour. The aroma carries an abundance of summer sweetness, with a creamy mouthfeel and flavours of ripe summer fruits. The finish is delightfully luscious with hints of oak spices.
Nose: Summer fruit meringue, strawberry, cherry, plum, cut hay and apple.
Palate: Vanilla custard drizzled over poached summer fruits.
Finish: Fruit pudding giving way to waves of soft oak spice.
