Honoring the distinctive characteristics of Irish Oak, Irish Distillers has unveiled Midleton® Dair Ghaelach Bluebell Forest Edition, the next chapter in its Virgin Irish Oak Collection of Single Pot Still Irish Whiskeys. This exceptional offering has been matured primarily in American oak Bourbon casks and finished in barrels made from Irish oak grown in the Bluebell Forest of Castle Blunden Estate in County Kilkenny, imparting a true and unique flavor of Ireland.
The whiskey, made up of a selection of Midleton’s classic rich and spicy pot still distillates matured for between 12 and 23 years in American oak barrels, was then filled into the Irish oak Hogshead casks, nosed and tasted each month by Leighton and O’Gorman. After a year and a half, the pair judged that the whiskey had reached the perfect balance between the spicy single pot still Irish whiskey and Irish oak characteristics.
Bottled at cask strength, between 55.30% to 56.30% ABV, and without the use of chill filtration.
Batch 1 / Tree 3 and Batch 1 / Tree 5 are both available. Please call or e-mail to confirm which one you would like to purchase.
