Killowen Distillery and Whisky a Go Girl collaborate on Single Cask Release

 

 

Press release

 

Two years ago Jenna, Whisky A Go Girl, had an opportunity to taste through a selection of Killowen experimental casks that Head Distiller and Founder Brendan Carty was working on, and she instantly knew there was something unique, yet exceptional being made. The quality of the spirit was unlike anything she had ever tasted, and the flavour compositions were out of this world.

 

In her own words,

These were literal dream whiskies, each sip conjuring a flutter of emotions that I couldn’t quite understand. Since then I have been on a mission to get to the bottom of what makes these whiskies so special, and I believe it all comes down to love. Love for the craft, the people, the land. The story-telling that comes with the enjoyment of each bottle, the love of making something for the world that brings people together. When you couple that with the brilliant minds and talents of Brendan and his team, you get once in a lifetime whiskies, worthy of immense praise and admiration.

 

Killowen are over the moon to get this opportunity to work with Jenna who is a wonderful asset to the world of whiskey. We think this whiskey captures her personality in flavour, quality and branding. It really is brilliant!

After aging for 5 years in an ex-bourbon cask, this Cooley-born Irish Single Malt made its way to Killowen Distillery, and in the care of its brilliant team, it was transferred into an ex-peated Irish Whiskey cask from The Great Northern Distillery. It is bottled at cask strength, free of artificial coloring, and is non-chill filtered.

The limited release of just 245 bottles, bottled at 58.6%ABV, and priced at £90 is available online here.

 

Official Tasting Notes

Nose
Rich juicy melon steeped in honey fill the nose, with notes of freshly cracked pepper and dried grass swaying in a warm breeze. A whisper of honeyed peat keeps your nose in the glass, searching for more.

Palate
A silken texture of whipped peated honey hits the palate and melts into a warm buttery mélange of fresh pancakes and melon-maple syrup, topped with a lemon – cardamom whipped cream.

Finish
Long citrus-peppery notes dance on the palate, making your mouth water for one more sip.
