Waterford Bannow Island 1.1
Using 100% Irish malted barley, Waterford’s Single Farm Origin series is an Uber-provenance range of limited edition natural whiskies that explore Irish “Teireoir” - one farm, one place at a time.,
The first release from Bannow Island was distilled from barley grown by Ed Harper on the extreme southern coast of Co. Wexford, where slat laden Atlantic winds and sandy oiled create a unique, if challenging terroir.
For maturation, 35% of the casks used were first-fill American oak, 20% were virgin American oak, 25% were French oak and 20% were casks previously used to age vin doux naturel (fortified wines)
The Official Tasting Notes include:
Fresh red roses with milk chocolate on the nose.
Warm vanilla custard and sweet dried fruit, white pepper, spicy cloves with a dried sweetness of salted caramel, malted biscuits and sherry.
A dry, oily lasting finish.
