Clonakilty Double Oak Finish Single Batch (70cl)
Clonakilty Single Batch Double Oak Finish is the flagship of Clonakilty’s cask finish range. In 2019 it won double gold at the San Francisco Spirits Competition, considered one of the most prestigious judging events in the whiskey world.
A premium product matured in ex-bourbon casks, it is finished in virgin American oak; and shaved, toasted and re-charred ex-red wine European oak casks (NEOC, New Era of Cask). This makes it the world’s first Irish whiskey to be finished in a NEOC cask. NEOC are ex-red wine barrels from the Bordeaux region of France. They are hand-shaved by traditional coopers, and re-toasted according to each individual distiller’s specification.
Nose: Soft spices, vanilla, fresh cut grass, slightly perfumed, riple apple/pear notes. Fresh leather tones.
Palate: Warm spices – cubeb pepper and ginger. Fresh cut grass, hazelnut and almond notes.
Finish: Well-balanced Irish whiskey with spices lingering on the palate.
Alcohol Vol: 43.6%
