Winner of 'Best Irish Single Grain' at the Irish whiskey awards, this is an exceptional whiskey.
To make it, we age it first in Bourbon, then it is finished in Oloroso before being finally casked in canteiro-aged, Madeira barrels from off the coast of Africa. Highly sought-after, and hard to come by, these Madeira barrels do something special to our whiskey.
Madeira wine is all about heat and tropical sea air. As such the barrels soak up and impart intense aromas and flavours bringing this whiskey right off the deep end.
The Nose. Rich sultanas, exotic fruit, mango and pineapple with a touch orange zest and marmalade. A light, inviting nose that draws you into deep flavours to come. The Taste. Complex but light and lively. Cooked fruit, raisins, dark cherry and plum notes. Vanilla and sweet grains with a slight peppercorn spice. The Finish. Clean and balanced, with dark stone fruits, spicy with a light earthiness.
