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.

  • Sweet, candy- like

A mid-golden colour with a little hint of the ruby red of the Sangiovese cask coming through in a slightly pinkish tinge.

  • Also a hint of white pepper spice and a little tannin from the wine
