On the nose are aromas of caramel, vanilla, grassy notes, oak and leather. The palate echoes the nose with a depth of complexity, and robust spice. The finish is warming with notes of cherries an oak spice.
This Kilbeggan single grain whiskey is twice distilled from 94% corn and 6% malted barley. Made using pure Irish spring water, the resultant wort is transferred to wooden washbacks for fermentation. The fermented liquid is then double-distilled in copper pot stills, which allows the whiskey to retain many of the raw flavors of its ingredients. Incredibly, the second distillation is done through the oldest working pot still in Ireland, which is over 180 years old. Aged in former bourbon casks for at least four years.
