Midleton Dair Ghaelach, Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey

700 ml, 57.9% abv, Ireland

Midleton Dair Ghaelach is the latest addition to Single Pot Still Whiskeys in the Midleton range. This uniquely Irish whiskey was triple-distilled, blended from a mash of malted and unmalted barley then matured primarily in refill American Oak bourbon barrels, and for the first time ever, finished in virgin native Irish Oak Hogshead casks, harvested from 130 year old oak trees from Grinsell’s Wood, within the Ballaghtobin Estate in Co. Kilkenny.  Midleton Dair Ghaelach (which means “Irish oak” in Gaelic) is crafted in the classic Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey style, a mash of malted and unmalted barley has been triple distilled in traditional copper pot stills and matured for between 15 and 22 years in American refill casks. Uniquely, the whiskeys were then married together for two days and filled into Irish oak casks for almost a year.  According to Billy Leighton, Midleton Distillery’s Master Blender, “The process of maturing in native Irish oak has enabled us to showcase our Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey style in a new and innovative way, the casks impart much more generous toasted wood, vanilla and caramel flavors than what we expect from American bourbon”

This bottle contains whiskey from batch 01, that was matured in wood from tree number 3 and bottled at cask strength 57.9% abv, non chill-filtered.
