This cask was bottled for sale at the Celtic Whiskey Shop in Dublin, and is one of the few Midleton single cask bottlings available. Cask #71578 was a first-fill bourbon cask, and the nose has notes of vanilla, hazelnut, cilantro, and honey. The taste starts off with a blast of pepper and cilantro spicesm then fades to reveal vanilla, almonds, and a touch of molasses with a smooth mouthfeel. The finish is long and smooth with brown sugar and molasses sweetness balanced with a touch of green apple tartness. Outstanding!
