Knappogue Castle Twin Wood

Country: Ireland
Type: Irish
Bottler: Castle Brands
ABV: 40%
Score: 89 points

This is Knappogue Castle’s first “finished” whiskey, with 15 years in ex-bourbon barrels and the remaining maturation in ex-sherry casks. The nose is complex and malty with strong touches of dried apricots and apples and roasted almonds. The taste is rich and spicy with a strong cinnamon note surrounded by nuttiness, dark chocolate, and caramel for a good blend of spice and mellow notes. The finish has a touch of malt and a slight citrus tartness balancing off dark chocolate. Complex and nice.
