- ABV 43%
Whilst 'Wild Geese' may seem like a tongue in cheek quip aimed at a major player in the American Whiskey market, we can assure you this whiskey is serious business. The name is a tribute to the tens of thousands of Irishmen who left their homeland at a time when it was being torn by natural disaster, famine and an opressive regime. It's said that these 'wild geese' were one of the most influential ethnic groups of the time, serving in the armies of Spain, France, Russia, South America and America. However, nowhere was their impact greater than America, where they became a major influence in America's push for independence, some even serving as aides to George Washington.
The whiskey is produced at Cooley's distillery, from a blend of select Irish aged malts then packaged in a distinctive, high gloss, square decanter. Originally designed exclusively for the duty free market, Nicks Wine Merchants have been lucky enough to source a parcel of this unusual, rare Irish whiskey.
Tasting Notes: Attractive nose of shortbread biscuit, creamy vanilla and lemon butter. The intensity and citrus notes build as the whisky opens up. The lightweight palate delivers plenty of flavour, with flavours of lemon peel, shortbread biscuit, vanilla cream and a hint of nutmeg until the grain grips, the palate warms gently, then the sweetly spiced lemon takes over. Perfect balance. Long and elegant finish. Aftertaste of lemon peel, sweet biscuit and nutmeg. 43% Alc./Vol.
