Knappogue Castle Marsala Cask

$88.00

Size
750ml, bottle

Knappogue Castle's Marsala Cask is a limited-edition release that marries their signature single malt with a unique finishing touch. Matured for a minimum of 12 years in ex-bourbon barrels, this whiskey receives a final flourish in casks that previously held the fortified wine Marsala, imparting a fruity and complex character.

Description

Nose

A delightful interplay of aromas unfolds. Soft, fruity notes like strawberry and red berry take center stage, hinting at the Marsala cask influence. Subtle hints of vanilla and mocha emerge from the base whiskey, adding complexity.

Palate

The initial taste is juicy and sweet, with prominent berry fruit flavors like strawberry and red apple. These fruity notes are balanced by a touch of spice (think black currant or pepper) and a hint of toffee sweetness from the bourbon barrel maturation.

Finish

The finish is where things get interesting. The initial sweetness fades, leaving a touch of dry oak and a light metallic note.
