Style: Single Malt Irish Whiskey
From the creators of Kalak Single Malt Vodka and Ornabrak Single Malt Gin, Origin Spirits welcome into the range the first whiskey to be finished in seaweed charred casks, the Currach. Originially matured in ex-Bourbon casks before being finished in seaweed charred virgin oak casks has resulted in a multi-layered flavour profile with a delicate umami character.
The name 'Currach' comes from a traditional Irish boat made of wicker, animal skins and tar going back to the Neolithic times. It would have been used to gather religious artefacts, transport whiskey to Scotland and today is still used to harvest seaweed in Ireland.
Nose: Toffee and raisins with hints of almond, backed by a roasted kombu aroma.
Taste: Arabic roast coffee fused with salted caramel and dark chocolate notes complemented by nutty, earthy, lightly smoked and umami undertones.
