Located in Ireland, this distillery is really exploring and pushing the boundaries of terroir in whisky. They work with local farms for barley, extended fermentation, and a slow distillation and now have a library of delicious Single Farm Origins each expressing their own identity.
Eccentric to some, regenerative to others, biodynamic agriculture goes beyond the ordinary ecological mindset. Drawing upon ancient lore of lunar cycles & exotic preparations, it seeks to charge soils with vitality & barley with vibrancy. Practiced by the most visionary & curious, we too are intrigued about the most natural flavors we can capture in spirit. For this landmark whisky, distilled from Ireland’s only biodynamic barley, we invoke the goddess of the moon for our most esoteric & evocative bottling.
Holly’s Tasting Notes: Apples, pears, peaches, just a huge soggy fruit basket, dry vanilla a bit of cider mill spices. The palate is fruit punch, sweet bubblegum, and spice one the finish.
Tasting Notes from the Brand:
Nose: Plums, apricot jam, fresh fruit salad, cold coffee, lemon drizzle cake, milk chocolate with almonds, fresh soil, bread proofing, brown sugar, herbal tea, hay on the ground after a shower of rain.
Taste: Spice on every level, front, middle, back, and in between, white pepper, cloves, green peppers, jalapenos, dark chocolate, licorice, malted biscuits, and peppermint tea, grapefruit.
Finish: An everlasting heat and spice that’s dry but is mouth-watering, with some mint tea. It has more of a linger and less of a finish.
