The Full Review
This double-distilled single malt rests for 10 years in bourbon barrels before a final finishing period in Madeira casks. The fortified Portuguese wine has a delightful influence, adding honeyed, golden raisin aromas, and hints of walnuts. The palate is concentrated and well-rounded flavor profile, with toasted oak and spice notes leading the way. There are cheaper Irish whiskeys with age statements out there, but this bottle is worth the splurge for special occasions.
