Dingle Distillery’s highly anticipated fifth Single Malt release is here. The fifth release comprises of malt whiskey that has been matured in ex Bourbon, PX and Madeira casks. 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.
Nose: The influence of the bourbon cask is immediately obvious. Crème brulee, salted caramel and molten honeycomb bombard the senses.
Palate: The heavyweight PX and Madeira casks punch through with sun dried raisins, creamy blossom honey and tiramisu laced with vanilla.
Finish: The sweet spice from the bourbon cask takes the curtain call rounding off the taste experience perfectly. Warm, lingering and mellow.
