Teeling Stout Cask Finish Bottling Note
The Teeling chaps have collaborated with the Galway Bay Brewery to create this tasty Irish whiskey finished in stout casks! We love the attention to detail on the presentation box as well.
Nose: Chocolatey and rich, with a light hint of rye spice backing it up.
Palate: Creamy caramel and vanilla, with layers of orange and plum.
Finish: Chocolate biscuits, more caramel, a subtle maltiness.
West Cork Blended Irish Whiskey is aged entirely in bourbon casks. This is a light blend of grain and malt whiskies that has big vanilla notes and a fruity finish.
The Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey is a new face on the Irish Whiskey market, but unlike most new faces it’s not a blend, but a sherried single malt which was honestly a bit shocking to see. I was first lured in with the crazy looking bottle and the macabre gothy label but it was the fact it was a sherried Irish single malt that intrigued the mind.
Put out by Proximo spirits the distiller of The Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey is unknown, but we have a pretty good idea who it is. Not too long ago Bushmill’s (located in the north of Ireland) released a sherry cask single malt for its Steamship series and Proximo has been the owner of Bushmill’s since 2014. I can’t help but think this comes from some of the same stocks.
