Cask Strength Tasting Flight - Irish Whiskey - (4 x 50ml)Regular price €46.00
A fantastic selection of Cask Strength whiskies from the four main Irish Whiskey styles. Single Grain, Single Malt, Single Pot Still and Peated/Blend.

Cask Strength whiskies have shot up in demand in recent years and this flight is a sample of what is available. The demand for cask strength whiskey is such that it provoked David Marra to launch the #caskstrengthcrusade to create awareness around CS whiskies!!
Tipperary - Single Cask - Single Grain - Cask Strength - 59.55% abv
This single cask release from Tipperary is from cask no. 627 of fewer than 250 bottles. It was filled into a Bourbon barrel in May 2010 for more than 9 years before being bottled in February 2020. The result is a light and buttery whiskey with sweet notes of marshmallow and vanilla, coming to a slightly spicy and deceptively rich cereal finish. Bottled at a cask strength of 59.55%, this is a superb example of a CS Single Grain whiskey.
Roe & Co - Cask Strength 2020 Edition - 13 Year Old - Single Malt - All Port Matured - 58% abv
This 13 year old Single Malt whiskey which has spent the entirety of its life in Port Casks; an extremely rare style of liquid to possess in such a young whiskey market. Port Casks have long been known for the intense flavour it can impress upon spirit and this release is no exception with an intricate array of dark berry, chocolate and spice notes it is a whiskey of supreme.
Dark Silkie - Cask Strength - B1/2021 - Peated Blend - 64.5% abv
The Dark Silkie 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.
Redbreast - 12 Year Old - Cask Strength (B1:2020) - Single Pot Still - 57.6%
Made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley and then triple distilled in copper pot stills, Redbreast 12 boasts the flavour complexity and distinctive qualities of pot still whiskey. Matured in a combination of Bourbon seasoned American Oak barrels and Oloroso Sherry seasoned Spanish oak butts, the distinctive Redbreast sherry style is a joy to behold in each and every bottle.
