In a move away from vintages, Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old is a delicious triple distilled single malt Irish whiskey bottling, having spent its days in bourbon casks.
Nose: Vanilla shortbread, a crack of black pepper and chewy malt.
Palate: Gentle oak spice and vanilla custard, with hints of cut grass.
Finish: Orchard fruit on a lingering finish.
