Nose: Hazelnut, buttered popcorn, a touch of menthol.
Palate: Fruitier than the nose suggests, with yellow plum, sultana and melon developing.
Finish: Malty and subtly drying
Bottled and released by Scottish indie bottlers, Boutique-y Whisky Company. Our guests this evening include BWC’s James Goggin, Liam Sparks of Pernod and now Hi-Spirits (Sazerac), Kevin Hurley of The Liquor Rooms, Teeling and now Balfes @ The Westbury, Lee Peare of Abelforth’s, Dave Mulligan of Bán Poitín & Bar 1661, and finally industry consultant Charlie McCarthy. That’s Aenaes Coffey upfront getting the cold shoulder. He is often named as the inventor of the coffey still. However, being the litigious man that he was, he merely refined and patented it. He would attempt to convert distillers to his more efficient stills, but was greeted with animosity and shunned by the distilling powerhouses of the time. He would later find success with the Scottish, thus helping turn the tide against Irish distilling…or so the story goes. Always more nuanced when you look into it.
Bottled in 2017, this Irish single malt has been aged for 14 years. Distilled at either Cooley or Bushmills, we’ll leave it up to your trained nose. Only 357 bottles were ever released with very few remaining today.
