Knappogue Castle 16 Year Twin Wood Single Malt Irish Whiskey

Knappogue 16 Year Old Twin Wood Single Malt Irish Whiskey carries on the tradition started by the Andrews over a half-century ago. As a single malt Irish whiskey, it is crafted exclusively from unpeated, malted barley before being triple distilled through both pot and column stills. Distilled in November, 1995 and bottled in October, 2012, Knappogue 16 Year Old Twin Wood Single Malt Irish Whiskey was aged for 14 years in ex-bourbon casks before being transferred by the Master Distiller into sherry-infused casks made specially for Knappogue Castle, where it rested for an additional 21 months.

Tasting Notes

As a result of this meticulous aging process, Knappogue 16 Year Old Twin Wood Single Malt Irish Whiskey has a deep, reddish gold color and a rich bouquet of fruits, nuts, malts and peppery spice. The palate is oily and filled with dark chocolate, with further notes of sherry and vanilla extract appearing on the body. The whiskey finishes dry and semi-sweet, with pleasant notes of oak and sherry rounding things out.

Proof 80 (40% ABV)
