A 24-year single malt Irish whisky matured in ex-Bourbon and ex-Sauternes casks, sign us up! This incredibly limited bottling is an absolute stunner. With aromas of Sultanas, tropical fruit, almond, cocoa, and confectioner’s sugar this takes off like a rocket to your senses. The palate is lithe and has a beautiful oily texture with flavors of golden raisins, figgy pudding, raw honey, and a touch of spice at the end to balance all those sweet characteristics. The finish is long and mellow and shows notes of Sauternes, cooked malt, cocoa powder and spice.
