This triple-distilled Single Malt paved the way, leading the Renaissance in rediscovering Irish Single Malts. It shaped a new future, taking us on a journey of discovery unlike any other.
Matured in American Oak Bourbon and European Oak Oloroso Sherry casks to give exceptional flavour and complexity. Rich, honeyed maltiness and soft notes of candied fruit come from the double maturation.
Nose: An orchard inside a big box of fudge with a great big gold bow on top. There’s a rich and honeyed maltiness too. Everything ripe, fruity and candied hovering in the air above the glass.
Palate: With your first sip, it goes deeper - staying sweet but taking you right down through the rich golden whiskey. (Its colour coming from the natural aging in bourbon and oloroso sherry casks.) Then come the layers. You might think of a big slice of cake - with toasted almonds and runny honey. A dusting of cocoa. All good stuff, in every bit of every sip. The last drop, savour it, malty and oaky. It’s gentle for sure, but no pushover.
Finish: Long lingering finish. Not so much a finish, more of an encore.
