2002 Gleann Mor Spirits Company Rare Find Cooley 19 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Irish Whiskey (700ml)
Distilled at the Cooley Distillery (home to brands like Connemara, Tullamore Dew and Tyrconnell, amongst others), while the aromas need plenty of coaxing to blow off the alcohol, this offers a delicious, mouth-coating arrangement of ripe pears and apples, beeswax and vanilla bean punctuated by bittersweet wood spices, semi-ripe pineapple and hints of banana cake in a prolonged finish. It's a great Irish, with the added allure of being finished in a Caribbean rum cask. Tasted from a 20ml sample. Bottled at natural strength and non chill filtered. 53.8% Alc./Vol.
