Irish Whiskey - Blend
Ireland is experiencing a whiskey renaissance with several new distilleries producing a range of styles from single malts and blends to traditional single pot still.
The Gael is the first blended Irish whiskey release from County Clare-based blender and bonder JJ Corry. This second batch of The Gael is made with a blend of 60% malt whiskey and 40% grain whiskey, matured in ex-Bourbon and Sherry casks. Vibrant and fruity, The Gael is a mission statement for the style of whiskey JJ Corry plans to one day make itself once its own stock matures.
Serving Suggestions: Serve neat or over good quality ice on a warm, summer’s day.
The nose is fresh and alive with the heady, summery scent of Amalfi lemons, toffee apples, acacia honey and fresh-cut hay. The palate is similarly vibrant with crunchy green apples, cereal and lemon posset, while a dusting of lime zest and ground peppercorns adds a tingly spiciness before a long, creamy and lemony finish.
