Christmas Gifts Sorted!

Posted by Hannah Osbourne Wednesday 1st December 2021 0 Comment(s) Sláinte,



With it being the First of December, Christmas is well and truly on its way (and we at the Celtic Whiskey Shop are delighted about it!). The lights are up, our calendars are full of invites, and the Christmas cheer is seeping in. So this blog post is for the organised shopper who likes to make Christmas as stress-free as possible and will probably have it all out of the way before the rest of us even cobble together a list (to those that organised, we salute you!). Be sure to keep scrolling as we have some old classics and new exclusives that we think would be very happily received under any whiskey lover's tree or under your own tree if you feel like spoiling yourself after the year it has been!


Midleton Very Rare Barry Crockett Legacy Single Pot Still

This very special whiskey was created to commemorate the career of the former master distiller who retired in 2013 after 47 years at the distillery. Barry himself helped to formulate this single pot still and it is highly regarded as one of the best in the range. The pot still elements used are drawn from light, medium, and heavy styles and the spirit is mostly matured in 1st fill bourbon casks with a small amount going into virgin American oak. There is no age statement but some of the whiskey used is very old (around 25 years). 


This whiskey is an absolute must for any whiskey collection, having picked up multiple awards time and time again it proves itself worthy of a place on any shelf. 


What to expect: 



Elegant aroma of vanilla and toasted oak complimented by a touch of lime, succulent green berries, pears, and green sweet pepper.



Light pepper carries onto fresh citrus, limes, and mandarin orange sweetness. A hint of cinnamon with vanilla and oak reveals its years spent in American oak.


The full spectrum of flavours lasts well into the finish, slowly fading to expose the clean American oak foundation.
