Irish Whiskey Magazine - Tastings - Slane Triple Casked

Slane Triple Casked

A blended Irish whiskey aged in three varieties of casks: Virgin American oak
and seasoned bourbon casks from the Brown-Forman cooperages, and Oloroso sherry casks from of Jerez in Spain. Bottled at 40% ABV and a fantastic RRP of €33.

Greg Dillon Notes

Nose:

Nice freshly charred oak notes, good vanilla accents, stewed dark fruits, lovely and smooth. The different cask
influences are superb. Lots of depth, butterscotch and brilliance.
 

Palate:

Spicy, potent oaky notes, nice warming medium finish.
 

Finish:

Medium to long length on it, the juices from the palate combine with the white pepper to ease you through to the end of the whiskey. Nice.

 

Overall:

Superb, great quality for a relatively inexpensive whiskey, lots to think about and spend time with here, really enjoyable and one that I’ll definitely be picking up a bottle of. 

 

 

Stuart Irvine Notes

Nose:

Lots of oak, a good lashing of vanilla, with plum and banana tickling the senses.
 

Palate:

An absolute joy of whiskey to swish around the mouth. Crème caramel infused with raisins soaked in the finest Jerez sherry. Plums, dates and toffee finely balance this out.
 

Finish:

Medium and spicy, the malt lingers around for a while.
 

Overall:

An absolute stunner of a whiskey. There is great balance in this. A maturation of virgin oak, Bourbon and Tennessee casks and Oloroso sherry cask give great complexity, every cask is singing in this whiskey at some point. At under €40 per bottle it undoubtedly the best Irish whiskey released this year in this price point.
