Midleton 'Dair Ghaelach' Knockrath Forest Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey is a truly exceptional expression of Irish whiskey craftsmanship. This limited edition release is made using only the finest hand-selected Irish oak trees from the Knockrath Forest in County Wicklow, where the trees were carefully felled, quarter sawn, and air-dried for two years. The whiskey is then matured for up to 23 years in ex-bourbon barrels before being finished in virgin Irish oak hogsheads made from the very same trees.
This unique maturation process imparts a rich, complex flavor profile to the whiskey, with notes of vanilla, honey, toasted oak, and a subtle spiciness. The nose is greeted with aromas of chocolate, cinnamon, and nutmeg, while the palate offers a creamy, velvety texture and flavors of dried fruit, caramel, and butterscotch. The finish is long and lingering, with a hint of oak and a gentle warmth.
Each bottle of Midleton 'Dair Ghaelach' Knockrath Forest Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey is individually numbered and comes in a handcrafted oak box, complete with a book detailing the unique process used to create this exceptional whiskey. With only a limited number of bottles available worldwide, this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the pinnacle of Irish whiskey craftsmanship.
