Knappogue Castle Cask Finish Series Aged in French Oak Casks from The Chateau Pichon Baron Winery
I’m a big fan of wine cask finishes and anytime I get to try something different I jump at the chance. Irish Whiskey brands have deep roots and connections with the French wine industry.

The casks used here are the best of the best, offering flavours of red grapes with a medium body, sweet tannin’s, good acidity and balanced. Nice black cherry fruits, cassis, cedar wood and leathery spices are to be discovered. These strong flavors are complemented to perfection by this premium Single Malt.[Read more…] about Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old Bordeaux Cask Whiskey Review
