Killowen - Rum and Raisin (Whiskey) - Batch 3 - 5 Year Old - Single Malt - 55% abv - 50mlRegular price €12.50
As with what has come before, Killowen have selected a handful of casks from neighboring County Louth. Then from their own Killowen Dark Rum cask comes notes of rich molasses and tropical fruits where-as the rich PX casks provide abundant raisin and dried fruits amidst the backdrop of the famous apples and pears often found in the sourced distillate. This highly limited release consists of 990 bottles, which will sell out quick.
Continuing with the discipline of Killowen Distillery, all bottles are at high strength and there has been no chilled filtration or added colouring. The spirit has come straight from the cask to the bottle, and is high in alcohol content. The virgin Cask is lightly charred and so the unfiltered spirit is relatively free of char this time.
A burst of fresh apple Juice along with black-strap molasses and a generous helping of warm Christmas pudding.
Sweet & Juicy large green apples along with dark sugar. A range of dried fruits such as raisins, sultanas & figs. All of this with heavy old-style dark rum as a backdrop and then a late arrival to the tropical Caribbean, with Coconut and Vanilla molasses.
Caramelised demerara sugar with toffee apple or candy apple. Red apples this time instead of the green ones earlier on, with a stand-alone note of ground almonds towards the end before a dollop of Christmas cake to finish.
