Grace O’Malley Irish Spirits unveils a limited edition, premium release, the award-winning Grace O’Malley Dark Char Cask Irish Whiskey
Grace O’Malley Irish Spirits unveils a limited edition, premium Irish whiskey, the award-winning Grace O’Malley Dark Char Cask Irish Whiskey. This special release is a premium blend, combining multiple batches of whiskey of varying age statements up to ten years to deliver the perfect balance of fruitiness, age character, complexity and smoothness. Finished in deep char casks, the extra time in the darkness brings a sweetness with vanilla and caramel notes, and a long, smooth finish with hints of roasted coffee bean.
This is a blend of high content double distilled (40%) and triple distilled (6%) malt, Grace O’Malley Dark Char Cask Irish Whiskey joins the brand’s premium range of limited release whiskeys, including the much acclaimed, award winning Grace O’Malley Rum Cask Irish Whiskey launched last year.
Responsible for the decisions at every step in the ageing, finishing and blending of all Grace O’Malley Irish Whiskeys is world renowned spirits expert, Cellar Master & Blender, Paul Caris who calls the exact moment each whiskey has reached perfection.
“Charring a cask primes the wood to release flavours such as vanilla and toffee notes,” says Caris. “We have toasted and charred French Oak and American Oak casks to level 4 and used these in finishing. It gives added complexity and depth to the whiskey.”
Bottled at 42% ABV
