Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey
For 32 years, Barry Crockett was master distiller at Midleton in County Cork, where he oversaw production of the monolithic Jameson, as well as Redbreast, Powers and several others. For the occasion of his retirement in 2013, he was given free reign to design this single pot blend. This swan song is made from a mash bill of malted and unmalted barley that’s triple distilled in traditional pot stills. It’s aged in ex-bourbon barrels then goes back for more rest in new American oak. It’s bottled at a robust 46%.
Nose: Light but rich and complex.
Palate: Lightly sweet with spicy notes of Canadian rye.
Finish: Long, peppery and warm.
