Midleton Dair Ghaelach Bluebell Forest Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey Tree No 4 #4

Winemaker's Notes:

IRISH OAK REBORN Midleton Dair Ghaelach is our first whiskey to be finished in Irish Oak casks. Each bottle can be traced back to an individual tree in the Irish estate that the wood was procured from, in this case , the Ballaghtobin Estate in Co. Kilkenny. Nine 130-year-old trees from Grinsell’s Wood, within the Ballaghtobin Estate, were felled in April 2012. To craft the oak into barrels, fellow artisans at the Maderbar sawmills in Baralla , north-west Spain, used the quarter-sawing process to cut the trees into staves under the watchful eye of the Midleton Masters. The staves were then transferred to the Antonio Páez Lobato Bodega cooperage in Jerez, where they were laid out for drying. After 15 months, the staves were worked into 48 Hogshead casks, each of which was given a medium toast, and brought back to the Midleton Distillery, Co. Cork. Our Masters at the Midleton Distillery invested significant time researching the differences between Irish, Spanish and American Oak, this allowed them to understand what affects the Irish Oak would have on the whiskey. The distinctive Irish Oak contributes to the enhanced vanilla, caramel and chocolate flavors of Midleton Dair Ghaelach. It also gives the wonderfully sweet, caramel and toasted notes that are detectable on the nose.
