Celtic Cask Seacht (7) 2001 Single Malt

70cl

This is certainly one of the most interesting releases in the Celtic Cask range. For the Seacht we took some whiskey that had matured in 2nd fill Bourbon cask and filled some of the contents in a Vin Santo Carratello (small barrel) from Altesino. Vin Santo is a highly desirable Italian dessert wine that is made by air-drying grapes slowly in barn lofts. The effect the tiny barrel had on the whiskey has been very interesting. It has an exotic and spicy flavour, quite unlike any other Irish whiskey, but absolutely delicious.

A mere 66 bottles of this have been made!
