Midleton Dair Ghaelach Irish Whiskey
Midleton Dair Ghaelach Irish Whiskey is a range of releases that are matured in oak barrels made from virgin Irish oak from particular forests across Ireland. The oak selected for each release influences this special whiskey with the true and unique flavour of Ireland.
Midleton Dair Ghaelach is a celebration of whiskey as it's made in our distillery today. Full-bodied, with rich sweet spices and toffee butterscotch notes on the finish.
Midleton Dair Ghaelach, which means quite simply, Irish oak, is the result of a six-year exploration by the Midleton Masters into using native oak to mature Irish whiskey.
Fragrant woodland spices with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg to the fore accompanied by aromatic oils and earthy pot still notes. Delicate hints of nectarine develop to create a zesty fruit note with dustings of white pepper. Additional aromas of dairy fudge and vanilla further accentuate the sweet nature of the whiskey.
Fortified by the Irish Oak, the pot still spices lead with a heightened intensity thanks to the rich wood tannins before subsiding to reveal velvety tones of caramel with sweet stewed apple and touches of orange peel. Dark chocolate with subtle notes of honeycomb and vanilla weave amongst the spices.
Delightfully long finish with the fruits and apices slowly fading, allowing the Irish Oak to linger until the very end.
