Feels like we’ve come full circle – back to another Irish whiskey evening. Our host was determined to select ones you do not normally come across!
So what did we have the pleasure of trying?
- Dingle Triple Distilled Batch 3, 46.5% from the 1st new independent Irish distillery in 200 years
- Method and Madness Irish Single Pot Still Whiskey 40%, matured in ex-Bourbon, Sherry and Chestnut, part of Midleton distillery’s new experimental line
- Green Spot Chateau Leoville Barton Bordeaux Finish 46%, after being aged in bourbon and olorosso sherry casks, from Mitchel & Sons, also part of the Irish Distillers (Midleton Distillery) family
- Redbreast Lustau Edition 46% Finished in first-fill oloroso sherry butts for a year, also part of the Midleton distillery product range
And why do I say “full circle”? Because this was not the 1st Irish Whiskey themed evening with these gents… rewind the clock to 2016 where we explored with the Whisky Ladies – Bushmills 10 year, 16 year, 21 year, Steamship + Connemara.
In that case, all but one came from the Bushmills “stable”… whereas this evening there was a distinct Irish Distillers aka Midleton Distillery bent, best known for Jameson whiskies.
