These 7 whiskeys have been finished in casks made from virgin Irish oak grown in Kylebeg Wood on the Ballykilcavan Estate, near Stradbally in Co. Laois. The oak influences these special whiskeys with the unique flavour of the heart of Ireland. Each of these Irish oak casks has then matured selected Midleton Whiskies between 13 and 26 years old. These are single pot still whiskies, first matured in our traditional American Oak Bourbon Barrels before being transferred to this native Irish oak. Full set includes seven bottles Trees 1-7.
|Nose||Fragrant woodland spices with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg to the fore accompanied by aromatic oils and earthy pot still notes. Delicate hints of nectarine develop to create a zesty fruit note with dustings of white pepper. Additional aromas of dairy fudge and vanilla further accentuate the sweet nature of the whiskey.|
|Palate||Fortified by the Irish Oak, the pot still spices lead with a heightened intensity thanks to the rich wood tannins before subsiding to reveal velvety tones of caramel with sweet stewed apple and touches of orange peel. Dark chocolate with subtle notes of honeycomb and vanilla weave amongst the spices.|
|Finish||Delightfully long finish with the fruits and apices slowly fading, allowing the Irish Oak to linger until the very end.|
