The first triple-distilled peated single malt in a century, the Bill Phil is steeped in history. This is the bottle that launched W.D. O’Connell back in November 2019, and its name has a family history reaching back to Daithí’s great-grandfather.
The Bill Phil is batched each year, and while each batch is different from the previous, every bottle has the distinct peated characteristics that Bill Phil fans love about this whiskey.
Matured exclusively in first-fill bourbon barrels, it is distinctly peated. You’ll get fresh charcoal, a creamy texture, and rich malt & citrus flavours with a delicate yet long smoky finish. You won’t be disappointed.
Bottled at 47.5%, non chill filtered, no added color.
Nose: Bergamot with light peated smoke fills the senses. Distinctively fresh vibrant notes of cereal slowly emerge with waves of poached pear and earl grey tea.
Palate: Buttery biscuit with waves of lightly smoked malt, banana bread, sweet cassia, and a hint of bergamot.
Finish: Citrus oil, and a wisp of smoke
