Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Rich fruity, nutty, malty. Mellow woodiness, slightly peppery, good age complexity. Overall quite intense sherried fruity maltiness
Finish Sherried fruity maltiness, layered with dusty dark chocolate and some lingering sweetness. This is a lovely old malt with just the right amount of sweetish sherry flavour complementing the overall stronger whiskey flavour.
Colour Medium deep reddish gold

Awards and/or Press Quotes
Richard Carlton Hacker—The Robb Report, March 2010 “Knappogue Castle Twin Wood is a 16-year-old Irish whiskey with a slight amber tinge to its golden hue, and a much more prominent taste. Triple distilled, Knappogue Castle’s characteristically smooth, mellow flavor is enhanced by the nutty sherried nuances of yeasty oak, apples, and olives.
