Boann Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey Marsala Cask

Initially matured in ex-Bourbon Barrels from the famed Brown Forman of Kentucky and made from American Oak 200ltr (Quercus Alba) with a heavy charring. We filled these casks with a mixed mash bill Single Pot Still distillate which included malted barley, unmalted barley, oats and rye. All of these grains are Irish and grown locally.

In collaboration with the famous Marsala house, Cantine de Vinci, we sourced a selection of Superiore and Fine Marsala Butts made from (Quercus Petraea) French oak. We filled these beautiful casks with our bourbon matured Single Pot Still which has a real American Oak backbone of vanilla and honey and then layered on top are the characteristics of the French Oak spice and juicy citrus notes from the Marsala wine.

Tasting Notes:
Nose: An evocative nose with subtle spices backed by resinous bark and burnt orange aromas, with notes of freshly cut grass and floral honey.

Palate: A rich and viscous mouthfeel with sweet marmalade on entry, superseded by peppermint and oak spices.

Finish: A prolonged finish imparted with delightful notes of cinnamon and clove.
