Following on from their wonderful cask 001 & 002 releases, Killowen Distillery announced the release of their Cask 024 which is being sold through the traditional Killowen retail channels. Many independent retailers across the Island will be receiving stock for sale, for online purchasing please visit Irish malts and Umbrella Project for mainland UK.
This bottling does not comply with the requirements of the GI governing Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey which allows for 5% adjuncts of oat, rye and wheat. Instead the mash bill has around 30%. The remaining mash bill consists of malted and unmalted barley – you will have to check out the packaging for the mash specifics.
The quality of the distillate and distillers’ cuts is evident in this young whiskey and is further proof that Killowen does not need many years to become whiskey, it simply is, in of itself beautiful. Killowen believe that this traditional whiskey should be smoked – only aged in an ex-bourbon cask, in an attempt to pair back the spirit to it’s simplest form. As Killowen is a ‘distillate led’ whiskey, the bourbon cask allows the consumer to enjoy a more paired back whiskey that is confident of its complex and balanced character and therefore does not need a heavy cask to dress it up.
As standard this bottling follows all the Killowen ethos, cask strength, no chilled filtration and no added colours.
RRP: £99.95 / €120.00
