700 ml, 57.9% abv, IrelandMidleton 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.

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"

"I consider this whisky to be a jewel amongst single malts and of the finest to have been released in Scotland" Robert Fleming, Distillery Director."Double-whammy of exotic fruits and honeyed vanilla points to the unmistakable influence of very old bourbon casks. A malt that reeks of great age from every pore. Fabulous interaction between the oak and barley but the great age is driven home by the spicier, drier riches that cling to the understated oiliness so typical of Tomintoul. Long and at times improbably lush with the malts having a distinct say before settling below the sea of gentle smoke and oak. Late drying vanilla and cocoa charms and redresses the vaguely fruity sub-plot. Truly great whisky....Supreme stuff!" (Jim Murray)

700 ml, 49.6% abv, Scotland (Speyside)Craigduff, 40 year old, 1973 vintage, single cask No 2516. Bottled in 2013 by Signatory Vintage for their Cask Strength range. 616 bottles produced, natural colour. This whisky could be described as double-peated, as peated malt was used in production, but also some of the water used was peated water made in Stornaway and run through the still to concentrate its peatiness. Craigduff is not a distillery. The whisky was an experimental peated single malt produced for Chivas Brothers in the 1970s, but not distillery released as a single malt.
It is believed to have been distilled at the Strathisla distillery. “Craigduff was made at the Strathisla Distillery and was made with heavily peated malt” (Hugh Thompson, retired distillery manager at Glen Keith & Strathisla) however Signatory have muddied the waters by declaring that it was distilled at the Glen Keith distillery nearby, this has since been denied by Chivas.
