Limavady Single Barrel Irish Whiskey


Out of stock


A new whiskey brand from Northern Ireland that currently makes just one product: A single barrel, single malt whiskey, triple distilled from Irish barley, finished in ex-bourbon and PX sherry casks. Former Bushmills and Dublin Liberties Distillery Master Distiller, Darryl McNally is behind the project that launched in 2021. He wants to revive his family’s heritage of making whiskey in Northern Ireland’s County Antrim. His family actually owned the old Limavady distillery before Prohibition, which dates back to 1750, though there’s no real connection between then and what’s being turned out since the recent revival. The new whiskey is bottled in partnership with WhistlePig distillery. It sports a generous bouquet that vacillates between fresher, ripe citrus and sawn oak notes and richer, Bourbon-like aromas of vanilla, ripe peach and fig-laced chocolate. It’s more distinctively Irish on the palate with an oily delivery that’s well rounded and weighty through the middle stages; Suggestions of dried peach and shortbread are followed by a sprinkling of pepper and light astringency before hints of Toblerone bar, jaffa and vanilla come through the aftertaste. 46% Alc./Vol.
