From the brand: We rigorously apply the ancient terroir methodology to today’s verdant landscape of Ireland, home of the world’s finest barley. Now for the first time in single malt whisky – unashamedly inspired by the legendary châteaux of France – we reach the apogee of this radical philosophy.
Our distillery, the technological marvel we call the Facilitator, enables us to create elite whisky – farm by farm, terroir by terroir. State-of-the-art equipment marries with ancient knowledge, locally grown Irish barley with extended fermentations, unhurried distillation & an array of exceptional oak. It has provided a unique library of Single Farm Origins – each expressing its own identity, its own voice.
This Cuvee is now a marriage and blend of many single estate farm releases.
Holly’s Tasting Notes: Buttery, nuts, almond milk, cream, and apples with orange spice. The palate has more spice, dehydrated oranges, chai spice, and some vanilla with ginger snaps.
Tasting Notes from the Brand:
Nose: Red apples, fresh dry soil, bread crust, green foliage, lavender, digestive biscuits, oranges, barmbrack, overripe banana skin, a summer flower bed, fresh mint, coffee cake.
Taste: Clove sweets, white pepper, oily, grapefruit, lemon zest, dark chocolate, dry toast, cherries, granola bar, dried herbs, aniseed, green olives, 3 peel marmalade.
Finish: Pepper upfront with oily spiciness that softens, starts dry but then gets mouth-watering & lingers where I close my eyes and relax!
