Celtic Cask #5 “Cuig” was triple distilled in Ireland in 1991 and was matured in a first fill Bourbon cask for over 13 years. It then spent the next 8 years out of cask before we rescued it from the angels' grasp! It was bottled as a Celtic Cask in September 2013. This is Irish Single Pot Still whiskey from a distillery whose identitiy we are not allowed to reveal. Top Secret!
~ Nose: Intense and complex with aromas of dried citrus peel with touches of ginger, allspice and mocha.
~ Palate: Juicy, complex and spicy. Great depth of flavour. Flavours of dried fruits,boiled sweets, citrus peel and allspice.
~ Finish: Gloriously spicy and oily. Like an old, heavy pot still whiskey but smoother and more refined.
