County Cavan, IRELAND
$135. 00 Bottle
$1620.00 Dozen
ABV: 46%
Tasting note: Aged for 14 years in oloroso Sherry casks and Bourbon barrels. Brilliant gold colour. Opens with attractive drier styled scents of wood shavings, bubblegum and vanilla. Second pass accents apple pie and shortbread as the aroma builds. Excellent concentration and balance, with juicy stewed pear, sweet spice and gobstopper followed by hints of marshmallow in the aftertaste. Ends dry, vibrant, pure and just plain delicious! Non chill filtered. 46% Alc./Vol. Extremely limited stocks.

Other reviews... The aroma of this light-gold whiskey mixes notes of faint smoke and fresh apple. On the palate, vanilla, citrus and dried fruit mingle with an oaky astringency and strong alcohol heat.
