The Liberator - Tawny Port Finish - Batch Two - Vatted Malt - 46% abv - 50mlRegular price €10.50
This Tiny Tipple comes from bottle 743 of 1,000.
This is a rich and complex malt Whiskey finished in really fresh ex Tawny Port casks, contributing intensity, richness and complexity to the whiskey.
A Vatted Malt - made up of Single Malts from different distilleries, Ireland's first for decades, this is a perfect showcase of the Whiskey Bonder's art.
The components are 22% 2006 Cooley Single Malt and 78% 2015 Great Northern Distillery Single Malt. All were initially matured in ex-Bourbon casks. The younger Whiskey was then finished in really fresh Tawny Port casks for between 9 & 12 months.
Nose: Intense fruity aromas like dried cherries and figs, some pomegranate, freshly peeled citrus zests, spices like cardamom and long-pepper tickle the nose, the crispy malt in the background acts as a stable structure to achieve complexity.
Palate: First some roasted aromas from malt and hazel nuts, then undertones of a winey sweetness, again fruity but now more blackberries, dried kiwi and blood orange zests, the mouthfeel is smooth with a soft sparkle.
Finish: Warm and spicy with a bit of candied ginger, again long-pepper and citrus zests.
