Kirkinriola: Pedro Ximénez Barrique - Macaloney's Island Distillery & Twa Dogs Brewery

Kirkinriola: Pedro Ximénez Barrique

$129.99

This island whisky is from our triple distilled single potstill range – triple distilled using only the best unmalted and malted barley available. The patient, yet purposeful, triple distillation produces a complex, layered and balanced new-make spirit. Dr. Swan described our original new-make which trickles off our copper pot stills as “the best that I have tasted in any distillery at this stage, super fruity.” This triple-distillate is even smoother and fruitier!

 

This single cask series, Kirkinriola (pronounced ‘kirk-in-riola’), is our connoisseurs / collector’s single-cask edition. Like the passionate, spirited Ulster-Scots, it is an ever-changing series of triple-distilled potstill expressions based on unique one-off single casks, or other special selections. With individually numbered bottles, it is sought after by those who appreciate fine whisky.

 

This particular Kirkinriola special release was fully matured in in a single Spanish Pedro Ximénez (PX) cask.

 

Our house-style tropical fruits and PX combine on the nose to give dark fruits, perfume, and Sherry with floral potpourri, roses, sweet pea flowers, red currants, sweet cherry, black currant and figs. This is followed by deeper notes of cocoa, bees wax polish, light tobacco, and ocean breeze. The rich and creamy palate has big PX Sherry, sweet malted milk, vanilla bean, treacle toffee, carnation flowers, pomegranate, ripe strawberries, nectarines, mandarin orange, black currants, raisins, dark chocolate, and cocoa. The finish is long with sandalwood, old leather, parma ham and honey-dew melon, dulse, red wine cellar, lingering sweet Sherry and dry-oak.
