Inishowen derives its name from the beautiful Northern Inishowen peninsula, situated in Co. Donegal in the west of Ireland . The peninsula itself is steeped in history centering around Burt Castle which was often a defence against various attackers down through the centuries. This region was also well known as a prime location for the illicit production of “poteen” whisky. In fact the bulk of the illicit trade was located in the Inishowen region and by 1822 there were as many as 800 stills in operation.
The Inishowen Irish Whiskey brand originates from the A.A. Watt distillery in Derry in the late 1800’s. The blend today contains a number of different types of whiskey which include peated malt whiskey, malt whiskey and grain whiskey. Noel Sweeney, Cooley Master Blender observes, “A detectable level of peatiness is the trade mark of this brand. The peat is balanced within a malt and grain blend giving a variety of flavours and another dimension to savour”.
- Jim Murray, author of 'Classic Irish Whiskey'.
Tasting note: Nose: That rarest of beasts: a peaty aroma on a blended Irish. Softer than it used to be, but with trademark apples and grapes; fine balance. Palate: Full, fat and much richer than of old. The sweetness holds longer and the smokiness has to battle through the intense malt. The grain adds a refined dryness. Finish: Dry, spicy, and hauntingly smoky. Some deep vanilla and sweeter malt . Comment: A superb blend that is more complex than it used to be. 40% Alc./Vol. Rating 80 points - www.whiskymag.com
