Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old Single Malt
is the first Knappogue Castle Single Malt to have an age statement. This Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old Single Malt is triple distilled in a Northern Irish distillery and is matured in bourbon casks for twelve years. The colour is a lovely pale straw/yellow color reminiscent of muscadet white wine withan aroma opening inhalations encounter richly biscuity and malty/grainy/breakfast cereal aromas. Several minutes of air contact adds intriguing pepper/vegetal and spice notes. The taste: Entry is balanced, focused, and integrated, slightly astringent and nicely fruity. The mid-palate has delicate tastes of marshmallow, brown sugar, oaky vanilla, and marzipan.
Comment: A polished and mature Irish single malt whiskey selected and bottled at the ideal age. One of the best Knappogue Castle bottlings to date. Excellent Value.
