Knappogue Castle 2000 Single Malt Marsala Cask Edition 2

70 cl

This was initially matured in an ex-Bourbon cask and was then finished in a Marsala barrel from Marco di Bartoli in Sicily. The Knappogue Castle Single Cask Series was made in conjunction with us here at the Celtic Whiskey Shop, with each finishing barrel being sourced from some of the wine companies that we work closely with.

Marco di Bartoli make some of Sicily's finest wines and are well known for their fine Marsalas. We always thought that Irish whiskey would mature well in their barrels, but we even surprised ourselves at the results with this one.

This comes packaged with a wooden gift box.

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Pronounced and concentrated aromas of baked apples, caramel, chocolate, and freshly baked pain-au-chocolat. Water brings out some lemon and lime aromas.
Palate Dry, spicy and powerful. Intense and complex in character yet it tastes typically Irish. Some nice fusel oil flavours along with lots of dried fruits, chocolate caramels, and some sweet fruit characters of red apples, and orange peel. Water adds some softness and a really nice coffee/espresso note
Finish Soft, warm and spicy with a lingering chocolate note.
Colour Pale bronze.
