Grace O’Malley launches limited edition Dark Char Irish Whiskey
26 March 2021
Grace O’Malley Irish Spirits has unveiled a limited edition, premium Irish whiskey – Grace O’Malley Dark Char Cask Irish Whiskey.
This special release is a premium blend, combining multiple batches of whiskey of varying age statements up to ten years to deliver the perfect balance of fruitiness, age character, complexity, and smoothness. Finished in deep char casks, the extra time in the darkness brings a sweetness with vanilla and caramel notes, and a long, smooth finish with hints of roasted coffee bean.
Unique in Ireland due to a high content double distilled (40%) and triple distilled (6%) malt, Grace O’Malley Dark Char Cask Irish Whiskey joins the brand’s premium range of limited release whiskeys, including the much acclaimed, award winning Grace O’Malley Rum Cask Irish Whiskey launched last year.
Nose: Coffee, bourbon vanilla, chocolate milk, roasted wheat, caramel candy.
Palate: Medium body palate delivering complex flavours of dried fruit cake and layers of oak.
Finish: Smooth finish with hints of roasted coffee bean.
Responsible for the decisions at every step in the ageing, finishing, and blending of all Grace O’Malley Irish Whiskeys is world renowned spirits expert, cellar master & blender, Paul Caris who calls the exact moment each whiskey has reached perfection. “Charring a cask primes the wood to release flavours such as vanilla and toffee notes,” said Caris. “We have toasted and charred French Oak and American Oak casks to level 4 and used these in finishing. It gives added complexity and depth to the whiskey.”
Grace O’Malley Dark Char Cask Irish Whiskey is beautifully presented in a hand tied, embossed leather label. Each bottle is individually numbered. Grace O’Malley Dark Char Irish Whiskey retails at €65 and is available from Irishmalts.com, jamesfox.ie and the Celtic Whiskey Shop.
