Kilbeggan Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey
Kilbeggan Single Pot Still is a glorious tribute to the town and those who kept its whiskey alive, proudly wearing the colour of County Westmeath on its label. It is the second limited release whiskey to be 100% distilled and matured at Ireland’s oldest licensed distillery. Double distilled, once through the oldest working whiskey pot still in the world, Kilbeggan Single Pot Still is a unique mash of malted barley, raw barley, and 2.5% oats that was inspired by historical recipes from the distillery’s heyday in the late 1800s.
This whiskey is soft and mellow, with a fresh, fruity palate that features a light, lingering spice and a rich, creamy mouthfeel from the influence of oats.
Initial fresh crisp aroma followed by apple, pear and melon. Jasmine and hazelnut notes combine with an almost honeycomb sweetness.
Spice becomes apparent but not overbearing with summer fruits and citrus. Warming mid palate with a fresh mint leaf flavour leading on to a rich creamy mouthfeel.
Initially soft, mellow and smooth with a creamy finish. Lingering spice and a dryness as the oat influence becomes evident.
