Whiskey Write Up | Kirker & Greer Shamrock
This weeks 'Whiskey Write Up' is relatively new, and until last week it's one I hadn't tried before.. Shamrock, a blended Irish Whiskey from Kirker & Greer
Named in honour of two formidable whiskey producing legends Archibald Kirker & William Greer, every drop of Kirker & Greer Whiskey today celebrates their bold liquid legacy. Meticulously sourced from the very best Irish distilleries, married and blended into unique expressions of Irish liquid gold.⠀
This is a smashing little dram, a triple distilled blend of malt & grain, matured in first fill ex-bourbon casks. Making way for a lovely mellow whiskey, apparent grain on the nose with a buttery, toffee apple sweet aroma. Creamy, caramel, stewed apple sweetness with a subtle short spiciness, followed by a soft and mellow vanilla finish. This one is very easy to drink, too easy perhaps!⠀
Works very well in a whiskey sour or served with ginger ale and a wedge of lime.⠀
Decent price point of around €50 a bottle. Definitely worth picking up to try.
Nose: Toffee apples, buttery croissants, brown sugar, marmalade and white flowers
Palate: Caramel, milk chocolate,stewed apples, white peppers and creamy vanilla.
Finish: Soft short-medium, vanilla.
ABV 43% | 70cl ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
