Product Description

This is a very different style of malt whisky as it distilled in a "Coffey Still aka Continuous Still" rather than a Pot Still. A Coffey still normally gives the spirit a much lighter fruitier character and is primarily used to distilled grain whisky usually made from Corn or Wheat and would not be allowed to be bottled as Malt in Scotland.

Nose: Big and bold spice and mocha, black cherry, Bourbon like sweet vanilla and an almost pot still like character spice. Toasted and aromatic oak, bananas in  butterscotch, snickers bars (chocolate, nuts and toffee)

Palate: Spiced chocolate and kirsch on a rich, sweet and oily body, more Bourbon like rich vanilla and even Rum like demorera sugar with aromatic spices and firm oak.

Finish: Black cherry, chocolate, creme brulee tops, hot toffee/butterscotch sauce, toasted vanilla, cinnamon and all spice, lingers long!

Somewhere style wise between Irish pot still (Redbreast) and Aged Bourbon, a thick and luxurious Malt with a difference.
