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
influences are superb. Lots of depth, butterscotch and brilliance.
Stuart Irvine Notes
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.
