The Silkies of the Donegal coast are mythical shapeshifters who shed their sealskin coats to become irresistibly enchanting sea maidens with long dark hair and beautiful voices. This Irish Distillery is in Donegal Ireland and produced under the Sliabh Liag Distillers.
Dark Silkie is composed of a triple distilled peated single malt which is matured in sherry casks. This single malt is peated to 55ppm (parts per million) which after the triple distillation results in a phenol level around 22ppm giving a rich sweet smoky flavor. The peated single malt is blended with a double distilled single malt matured in bourbon barrels and soft grain whiskey matured in virgin oak casks.
On the nose, fresh apple, pipe tobacco, and the comforting dry smoke of a peat fire. To taste, the whiskey is super soft with a salted-caramel sweetness, dark chocolate and licorice, oak, leather, and a dry spicy smoke. The finish is warming with smoky malt, peanut butter and melts away.
