Midleton Dair Ghaelach Grinsell's Wood Tree 7
Few releases symbolise the renewed confidence in Irish whiskey - and in particular Irish Pot Still whiskey - as much as this bottling. It incorporates Irish oak into the maturation program, using native casks to finish the malt. The Irish wood was not been used to mature anything else previously, so these Virgin casks have the maximum impact in a short space of time. Tree for this cask was sourced from Grindell's Wood in Ballaghtobin Estate.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: The crisp pot still spices are seamlessly enriched by the woodland fragrances of the Irish oak. Sweet vanilla notes are given depth by some chocolate honeycomb and coffee beans. Whilst the balancing rich fruit aromas of red berries, pineapple and ripe banana compliment the subtle aromatic oils.
Palate: The typical pot still spices are fortified by the Irish oak character. Robust yet mellow, clove and cinnamon give way to diary fudge and milk chocolate sweetness combining with a touch of stewed apple.
Finish: An exceptionally long finish, with some sweet spices slowly fading, leaving the final bow to the Irish oak.
