Dingle Single Malt Irish Whiskey Batch 5
Dingle Distillery’s highly anticipated fifth Single Malt release is upon us. The fifth release comprises of malt whiskey that has been matured in ex-Bourbon, PX and Madeira casks.
Small. Artisan. Independent. Proud. We hold these truths to be self-evident. Distilleries are not created equal, nor is the whiskey that flows from them. Dingle Whiskey is a product of its environment. From the localized well water to the immensely manual mashing, alongside the wooden fermentation vessels that feed into the three bespoke copper pot stills, the production is purely Dingle. The microclimate then creates a maturation like no other. They do not manipulate the course of their whiskey, only nature can do that.
This will be the first such release from Dingle. Bottled at 46.5% and non-chill filtered.
Batch 5 is a very interesting whiskey in which the component casks come to the fore at different stages. The bourbon adds aroma and spice whereas the PX and Madeira casks deliver on mouthfeel and taste.
