This product was included in our Virtual Irish Whiskey Tasting, as Whiskey no. 1 in the line up
Notes: Exclusively fully matured in Californian Cabernet Sauvignon wine barrels which creates very distinctive rich amber colour while imparting strong spicy notes and lush red berries and grape flavours.
Nose: Honeyed apple flesh and red grape, sweet and slightly floral with fragrant vanilla and spice, evaporated milk and brown sugar.
Palate: There's treacle on the palate, but it's light and buttery with dried cranberry developing.
Finish: Into golden syrup tart and sweet egg custard now with spicy cereal.
Overall: A thoroughly enjoyable grain whiskey, sweet and fairly light but full of flavour.
