Legendary Silkie: Inspired by the tales of the mythical Silkie seals of the Donegal coast, The Legendary Silkie Irish Whiskey a balanced blend of double and triple distilled single malts, soft grain whiskey and a hint of peated malt. It is bottled by hand at 46% ABV and is non chill-filtered for a distinctively rich character. Although higher in ABV, The Legendary Silkie is exceptionally smooth with crisp green apple to the fore, ripe red fruits, gentle smoke and an oaky sweetness which gives way to a long lingering finish of gently warming spice.
Legendary Silkie Cask Strength: It is a blend of double and triple distilled single malts alongside soft grain whiskey. There is a small peated single malt element to this blend. Its a really great blend full of complexity and really lives up to the previous Cask Strength releases that Sliabh Liag Distillers have put together.
Legendary Red Silkie: The Legendary Red Silkie Irish Whiskey not only draws inspiration from the folklore of Donegal, but of the rich history and heritage of the county. The Legendary Red Silkie has been finished in Rioja and Ribera red wine casks, the Ribera del Duero wine region lies just to the east of the final resting place of Red Hugh O’Donnell at the Castle of Simancas in Spain. Wines from the Ribera region tend to be full bodied with firm tannins while Rioja wines lead with big fruit flavours. This combination of wine cask finishes gives the whiskey extraordinary depth of character, matched with the signature softness of the award-winning Silkie blend.
Legendary Red Silkie Cask Strength: The Legendary Red Silkie Cask Strength. The Red Silkie Cask Strength is, like the 46% bottling, non-chill filtered and hand-bottled. Bottled at 63.2% ABV the Red Silkie has remarkable softness, rich complexity and aromatic red fruit notes. Finished in Ribero and Rioja.
Legendary Dark Silkie: An ode to the Donegal whiskeys of days gone by, Dark Silkie is a rich smoky blend loaded with character. Non chill-filtered and bottled at 46%, the whiskey is incredibly smooth with a stunning natural sweetness. Continuing to draw inspiration from the rich folktales of the Silkie Seals, often told by the glow of a turf fire, Dark Silkie has at its core triple distilled peated single malt which is matured in sherry. This single malt is peated to 55ppm which after triple distillation becomes 22ppm giving a rich sweet smoky flavour.
Legendary Dark Silkie Cask Strength: This is a peated Irish whiskey blend bottled at 64.5% ABV and limited to just 210 individually numbered bottles. Peated certainly seems to be one of the latest trends in Irish whiskey, a throwback to the times when a large proportion of Irish whiskey would have had an element of peatiness. Combine that with the other emerging trend of higher ABV and cask strength releases, this turned out to be a winning combination.
