Bottler Waterford
A rich texture with a long and gentle finish. Notes of baking bread, chocolate, warm custard, rhubarb & apple tart and clove, this whisky is complex and fruity.
Cask Type Single Malt
Made entirely from Irish Irina malted barley which has been grown on the Duggan's Co. Laois farm, this whisky has been aged for over 3 years and 7 months in multiple cask types including first-fill, virgin US and French oak.
Country Ireland
Chill Filtered No
Long fermentation and slow double distillation creates and impactful flavour, and the texture is maximised by no chill filtration or additional colouring.
Appearance/Colour Light Gold
Tasting Notes Nose
Warm custard, bread baking, red apple, milk chocolate, dried flowers, butter cream, pine needles. It reminds me of waiting to eat a rhubarb & apple tart fresh from the oven with custard & cream to hand.
Palate
A gentle clove to start that leads into proving bread & malted biscuits, in the middle a pepperiness that travels back my tongue then honeydew melon & pears.
Finish
Notes of apple crumble, stewed rhubarb and clove that linger in the finish.
