Celtic Cask Cuig Deag (15)

70cl

Celtic Cask Cuig Deag is our fifteenth special release and is another great example of a perfectly matured Irish whiskey. We sourced some unique whiskey that had been matured in a bourbon cask for 22 years. It came from a very well known distillery on the island of Ireland, but we cannot divulge any more than that!

The whiskey was then transferred into a specially sourced port pipe from one of Portugal's finest wine makers, Quinta do Noval. A further maturation period of over two years gave this richly flavoured whiskey an extra dimension. This is one of our all time favourite Irish whiskeys and is something we are incredibly proud of.
