Kinahans 10 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey (700ml)

$125. 00 Bottle
$1500.00 Dozen
ABV: 46%
Dubbed “the Pioneer of Irish Whiskey”, Kinahan’s acquired international recognition back in the 1800s, partly for their unconventional approach to maturation. Released in 2015, the ten year old is part of their award-winning 'Heritage Collection'.

Tasting note: Brilliant gold. Near prefect nose with a melange of ripe peach, light vanilla, bristling barley and pristine oak. In the mouth, sultry fruits and oily barley dovetail into vanilla wafer biscuit and lemon barley sugar. Salivating spices keep you coming back. Impeccable Irish. 46% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... A beautifully constructed whiskey where, very rare for a single malt these days, you can actually taste the malt itself... A treat of a whiskey.

...200 years ago, Kinahan’s was the favorite tipple of the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. The small batch single malt has blackcurrant jellies, cinnamon sticks, dry oak spices, and baked raisins on the nose. An unctuous, succulent palate follows, with rich baked goods, roasted fruits, baked orange, cherry cola, black pepper, and chili flakes. Rounded, weighty, sweet, and rolling, this just laps up the water. Dark, oily finish with bitter chocolate. A single malt you can really get behind.
