1 October 2021 | 0
Dingle Distillery is proud to launch its highly anticipated sixth and final release of its Single Malt Batch series – Dingle Single Malt Batch 6.
Some 15,000 bottles of the liquid have been produced with an all-port maturation and with an additional 1,000 Cask Strength bottles available.
Priced at €70.00 (RRP) per 70cl bottle with the Cask Strength priced at €150.00 (RRP), the new single malt whiskey (46.5% ABV) is available to purchase now at DingleDistillery.ie, IrishMalts.com, Celtic Whiskey Shop and across independent off- licenses nationwide. Dingle uses non-chill filtration to produce its whiskey and adds no colouring.
Elliot Hughes, managing director at Dingle Distillery, said the team are delighted to launch the final batch in a series of carefully curated whiskeys.
“This launch will be of particular interest to those who have followed our journey since our first batch release in 2016 but also for those who want to experience the art of the Dingle Whiskey distilling process through the final Single Malt Batch in the series,” Hughes said.
“At Dingle Distillery, we always endeavour to create really special and unique products and we think this is evident in Single Malt Batch 6,” he added. “We are really proud of this launch and can’t wait for whiskey fans to try it.”
Graham Coull, master distiller at Dingle Distillery, said it was a pleasure to be part of the distilling process.
“Our Single Malt Batch 6 is fully matured exclusively in Tawny Port Casks, Batch 6 is a great of example of the interaction between Single Malt spirit and Fortified wine,” Coull said.
“A whiskey with multiple layers of sweetness and a well-balanced depth of flavour,” he described Batch 6 as a true “must try, even more so as it is the last in the series”.
Tasting notes for Dingle Distillery Single Malt Batch 6:
Nose -The port casks deliver a wonderful intensity. Maple syrup, thick cut marmalade, butterscotch, and crystallised ginger.
Taste – Full on fruit and spice. Waffles laced with syrup, redcurrant jelly, crushed cranberries, gingerbread, and dark chocolate.
Finish – Lively with an increasing sweetness. Ginger spice and honeyed dates come to fore.
