Description

Distilled from our own homegrown barley, grown on our land, matured in a traditional farm shed, right beside our farmhouse.

This is a limited edition single cask from Tipperary distillery, with fewer than 300 bottles filled.

Cask SMOB0018

This is a single cask of single malt whiskey, distilled using only barley grown in a single field (our Railway Field) at Ballindoney Farm, Tipperary. 

Barley is the core ingredient of our single malt whiskey. With the addition of only water and a little yeast, this unique crop gives us the core flavours of the new make spirit that matures on-site into whiskey.

This limited edition single cask was filled into a first fill ex-Rioja cask in June 2017 and bottled in June 2022 at a cask strength of 51.5% abv.

The cask was sourced from Bodegas Faustino in Spain and was previously used to age Rioja wine. The winery owns about 650 hectares of vineyards in the some of the best areas in La Rioja. Over the last few years, the winery has incorporated new, environmentally-friendly grape growing practices to make the vineyards increasingly sustainable.

Bodegas Faustino is one the leading exporters of “Gran Reservas” and has been making Rioja wines for centuries. This has given the spirit held in this single cask, a rich red colour and delicate wine notes on the palate.

Tasting Notes:

Note is full of dried fruits – raisins, sultanas and a hint of candied oranges

Mouth: sweet and surprisingly fresh with citrus, cherries and almond notes

Finish: medium long, chocolate cherries linger
