An exceptionally long finish, with some sweet spices slowly fading, leaving the final bow to the Irish Oak.
Midleton Dair Ghaelach Grinsell’s Wood Tree 7 Batch No.1
Midleton Dair Ghaleach. It means quite simply, Irish oak. This whiskey has been matured in barrels made from virgin Irish oak grown on the Ballaghtobin Estate in Co. Kilkenny and what the oak brings to this special whiskey is the true and unique flavour of Ireland. Its provenance as individual as its fragrance, its journey from grain to glass as distinguished as its finish, this is a whiskey like no other.
“The Irish Oak casks are filled with a select range of 15 to 22 year old Single Pot Still distillates. Nosed and tasted every month by our Master Blender, Billy Leighton, and by then Master of Maturation, Kevin O’Gorman, after almost a year, Midleton Dair Ghaelach was judged to be beautifully balanced; subtly yet unmistakably flavoured to perfection by the Irish oak that gives it its name. In the history of Irish whiskey, Midleton Dair Ghaelach is one of a kind. The first Irish whiskey to be matured in home-grown Irish oak, it’s as individual as it is irresistible; a whiskey as satisfyingly Irish as it is undeniably elegant.“
