"We bottled a whole lot of curiosity" Finbarr Curran, Apprentice Bond Operations. Curiosity got the better of us, but the result was better than we could have hoped.
A world first, this limited-edition release is a Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey aged in ex-bourbon and sherry casks, finished in wild cherry wood casks. Wood from the cherry tree is characterised by its porousness; adding complex flavours of fine wine, capers and ginger spice.
Volume: 700ml, ABV: 46%.
Nose: Box hedge clippings, coconut fibre and shredded ginger
Taste: Fresh green herbs, black tea and pot still spices
Finish: Long and fresh, prickly spice and toasted hazelnut
