Coming hot on the heels of its blended brother (WBID # 167510) we have the most heavenly single malt on offer from anywhere between Rostrevor and the outer reaches of the Orion nebula. We are simply bursting with pride over how good this whiskey is. With an ABV of 43% it is a blend of peated and unpeated malt spirit which has been stored in bourbon casks for over three years and finished off in IPA casks for six weeks.
It truly is a prince among whiskeys! It has a slight haziness in the bottle caused by fine oils which are part of the essential flavour of a top quality malt whiskey. a nose of ovidean proportions (for anyone who’s not a student of the classics, the poet Ovid, is reputed to have had a big nose), a rich, warming, slightly peaty taste and a delicious lingering malty aftertaste.
The first 100 bottles are numbered 0001 to 0100 in a gift box with certification of authenticity
On the Nose: Clean with no ‘off’ notes. Round, smooth with a soft and well-balanced peat nose.
On the Palate: Very pleasant. The peat came through and added to the quality/style without being an overpowering influence.
