With the help of the finest distillers and craftsmen, we bring you Knappogue Twin Wood -- the first Sherry Finished Knappogue Castle matured for sixteen years in two types of wood. The result is a perfectly balanced single malt Irish whiskey with a complex, rich taste and a slightly sweet sherry finish. The color is medium deep reddish gold. The aromas conveyed are: intense, aromatic, rich, malty, fruity, spicy, notes of nutty vanilla, dusty dark chocolate. The taste is very deep and complex, with nutty sherry maltiness, fruity, dusty dark chocolate, spicy, pleasant woodiness, vanilla notes, slightly peppery; some sweetness, mellow and rounded. The finish gives a nice sherried maltiness, with some sweetness and dark chocolate lingering.
The mellow, light-bodied specimen is also among the most aromatic, scented with fresh apples, pears and vanilla. Although it's a Sherry-finished single malt, the Sherry characteristics aren't readily identifiable, there's just an oaky vanilla flavor that builds on the finish, accompanied by a little cinnamon spark. Only 1,900 bottles produced, all signed and numbered.
