The barrels for the Clonakilty Port Finish Blended Whiskey are stored on the rough cliffs in the south of Ireland. The whiskey was dazzled with 7-10 year old bourbon barrel matured single malt and single grain whiskey. After blending, the whiskey was added to the Port Wine Cask to give it an excellent finish. In the glass, the whiskey captivates with its great color. The port wine barrel has given him a great red tone.
The 2016 vintage of Midleton Very Rare effortlessly combines smoothness with some really nice, old pot still complexity. Definitelty one of our favourite Midleton releases.
A delicious blended Irish whiskey that has been aged in ex-bourbon barrels, giving it smooth notes of vanilla, honey and toasted oak. Made at one of Ireland’s oldest distilleries, this whiskey has a traditional Irish character.

Pale gold in color. Aromas of vanilla, honey and baked fruits (confit). Very smooth entry and then expansive with a mouth coating, oily texture. Mid palate shows a nuttiness and warmth with hints of raisin and plum. Long, clean finish with subtle marmalade notes and caramel. The Wicklow Blend is as mysterious as the ancient mountains that this blended Irish Whiskey is named for.
