It took almost a year of prodding but I finally got a warm introduction to the folks of this historic distillery. I was not only able to secure a barrel for the restaurant, but was even able to choose it from a lineup of a dozen! The barrel that I selected was head & shoulders better than the others I tasted, aged 12 years at a constant temperature.
This ‘Nicholas Reserve’ exclusive bottling is an exceptional single malt made exclusively from malted barley. Triple distilled one batch at a time in traditional, onion-shaped copper pot stills, the whiskey is then aged in bourbon oak casks for twelve years. The delicate distillation process, along with the moist and temperate climate, yields the distinctive flavor of this remarkable Irish single malt. It’s rich and smooth with baking spice aromas, a hint of fruitiness and a clean, medium finish a mile long!

This is one of the finest Whiskey’s in the world. The barrel that I selected was aged 12 years and was head & shoulders the best of the dozen that I tasted.
Great with salmon, lamb, steak or a nice little dessert beverage with or without some dark chocolate.
