Whiskey Write Up | Grace O'Malley Dark Char Cask

Next up for a Whiskey Write Up is a limited-edition from Grace O'Malley is a 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 (French & American), 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.

I was delighted to sit down with this one, after the guys at Grace O'Malley kindly sent me some to try out. On the nose initially is a sweet roasted chocolate/caramel. This is a very easy whiskey on the palate, with a nice complexity giving way to some soft sweet undertones.. in a nutshell, it's a gem!

ABV 42% | Limited Release

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Coffee, bourbon vanilla, chocolate milk, roasted wheat, caramel candy.

Palate: Medium body palate delivering complex flavours of dried fruit cake and layers of oak.

Finish: Smooth finish with hints of roasted coffee bean.

Great Value Whiskey in the under €70 category, I recommend trying it while you can!
