  1. Official tasting note

    The barrels for the Clonakilty Rivesaltes Cask Finish are stored on the rugged cliffs in the south of Ireland. The Rivesaltes is a sweet wine made from red or white grapes, which is pressed in the Languedoc region of France. This Clonakilty whiskey was blended from single malt and single grain whiskey, which matured in bourbon barrels. After the whiskeys were married, they were placed in the Rivesaltes barrel for a finish. The distillery attaches great importance to selecting extra fresh barrels that give a special finish. The whiskey captivates with aromas of dried fruits, dark chocolate and creme brulée.

    But it is not only the post-maturation in the Rivesaltes barrel, a currently rather unusual type of barrel for Finnish in the whiskey sector, that makes this clonakilty bottling something special. It is the first single cask bottling from Clonakilty, which is available in Germany.

    The whiskey is limited to 380 bottles. - Vol.%: 43.6%
