Clonakilty Single Grain


Seems odd to start the blog with an Irish whiskey but there you are, there’s no rhyme nor reason to dramming, as Bob Marley may have said once!

I visited this Distillery on Thursday past and met the small friendly team. They’re a new distillery that only opened in March of this year with a refreshingly open and welcoming attitude. Chloe invited me to taste the range of whiskies which I did. The first was very young, like VERY young with light flavours. My favourite however was the Single Grain finished in Bordeaux casks. It had a good nose and tasted of vanilla, toffee and honey which didn’t linger but was replaced by a pleasant sea-salty aftertaste
