Greenore 8 Year-Old Single Grain Whiskey
Cooley's award winning grain whiskey. One of the few Irish whiskeys available in this style.
Grain whiskey is made from maize which Cooley distillery sources in France, which produces a very smooth and sweet flavour. Matured in first fill ex-bourbon barrels and released in small batches. This whiskey gives you a new found respect for grain whiskey!
Of all the Cooleys whiskeys, I think Greenore is the best for use with mixers or in cocktails due to its very smooth, light, sweet flavours with hints of vanilla.
Distillery Tasting Note
Nose: Soft, sweet corn, delicious hints of bourbon.
Taste: Rich, soft oils, melt-in-the-mouth grain and just a hint of barley for good measure.
Finish: Crisps up as the oak returns.
