Great Earl Single Grain Irish Whiskey 70cl
Great Earl Single Grain Irish Whiskey is a combination of Rechar-barrelled grain Irish whiskey and virgin oak grain, matured for 45 months and then merged to spend a further minimum period of 3 months in ex-Sangiovese casks, sourced exclusively for us from the Lazio region of Italy, a nod to the final resting place of the Great Earl in the Vatican in Rome.
Subtle hints of cherry, strawberry, rose petal and citrus, layered on top of marzipan, almond and oak notes. Vibrant fruity notes on both the nose and palate.
The Rioja wine cask imparts a colour reminiscent of a fine Rose wine.
Taste delivers satisfying blends of toffee, vanilla and toasted almonds. These are complemented by delightful notes of cinnamon and clove, typical of spicy riojas.
This whiskey has a medium bodied mouthfeel that ends in a long, warm and moreish finish.
