The Bridge Single Malt Irish Whiskey - St Mel's No. 1 Single Cask Release

75cl

This release marks Lough Ree's first adventure into beer cask aged whiskey. The Single Malt used was aged for 6 + years in first fill Bourbon Cask and then finished for several months in a Red Wine cask that last contained St Mel’s Brown Ale. The chocolate, caramel, and malt flavours in St Mel’s Brown Ale really compliment the triple distilled malt, making for a sweet and very moreish whiskey.  Exceptionally smooth overall with long-lingering malt notes and sweet oak spice.

Tasting Notes from the Producer
Aromas (without water) Sweet dairy chocolate notes present initially with exotic fruit and cantaloupe melon. A dryness which evokes aroma of brazil nut complements the sweet malt base, teasing what is to follow.
Flavour Exceptionally soft and sweet, with honey and brown sugar dominating. The delicious malt flavour combines with cantaloupe and a touch of mandarin orange before drying delicately on the side of the mouth.
