Following the fight for freedom from the Crown at the Battle of Kinsale, 1601, seeking aid from allies in Spain, Red Hugh O Donnell, Earl of Tyrconnell, was reputedly poisoned by an Anglo-Irish double-agent & buried in Spain. Red Earl Irish Whiskey, a tribute to his story, is first aged in bourbon, then sherry and finally matured in Rioja casks. Triple-casking delivers roundness of flavour, lengthy finish & an exceptional aroma.
Nose: Subtle hints of cherry, strawberry, rose petal and citrus, layered on top of marzipan, almond and oak notes. Vibrant fruity notes on both the nose and palate.
Palate: Taste delivers satisfying blends of caramel, vanilla and toasted almonds. These are complimented by delightful notes of cinnamon and clove, typical of spicy riojas.
Finish: This whiskey has a medium-bodied mouthfeel that ends in a long, warm and moreish finish.
