  1. Official tasting note

    The Bridge Whiskey – St. Mels No.1 Release

    We’ve known Eoin and Liam at St. Mels Independent Brewing Company in Longford for years. Like most Longford people, they are sound men.

    And so when the chance came about to collaborate a little, naturally we jumped at it.

    The story is fairly simple – we sourced a Rioja Cask , St. Mels used it to age a Brown Ale , and then we filled it with some fine Whiskey for several months.

    The end result is an outstanding Whiskey, and the collaboration is definitely something we plan to repeat in the future.

    Whiskey: 2014 Malt Whiskey

    Maturation: 6 + years in first fill Bourbon Cask, finished for several months in a Red Wine cask that last contained St Mel’s Brown Ale.
    • Nose
      sweet dairy chocolate notes present initially with exotic fruit and cantaloupe melon. A dryness which evokes aroma of brazil nut complements the sweet malt base, teasing what is to follow.
    • Taste
      Exceptionally soft and sweet, with honey and brown sugar dominating. The delicious malt flavour combines with cantaloupe and a touch of mandarin orange before drying delicately on the side of the mouth.
    • Finish
      Pleasantly dry with long lingering malt and sweet oak spice.
