    Very good quilty, the flavour from the French cognoc cask really comes through. Gives the whisky a hint of spice and a fruity taste. The smell of the whisky is just divine.

    The second new release from Thomond Gate Whisky as part of its ‘Departed Spirits of Limerick’ series, pays homage to a rebellious hero known as Galloping Hogan, from the parish of Doon, Co Limerick. In 1690, this infamous rapparee, along with Patrick Sarsfield and 500 Jacobite troops, successfully lead a daring ride to Ballyneety to blow up a Williamite siege train. Galloping Hogan refused to accept the Treaty of Limerick in 1691 and left Ireland the following year to become a General in the French Army.

    In memory of Galloping Hogan and the French involvement in the siege of Limerick, this is a Single Malt Irish Whisky, finished in a French Cognac cask. This gives the whisky a warming spice, with gentle vanilla, brown sugar and biscuit taste with a hint of dried flowers, green apples and orchard fruits. A limited release of just 288 bottles, Galloping Hogan has been bottled at cask strength (59.59% ABV) with non-chill filtration and natural colour. Each bottle has been hand filled in 70cl bottles, labelled and embellished with a unique coin engraved with the individual bottle number making it a truly memorable experience for whisky collectors and enthusiasts alike.
