Knappogue Castle 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Republic of Ireland - 40.00% 8 Poised, elegant and very well balanced. A lovely drop of the Irish as they say.
Knappogue Castle 1993
Single Malt - Ireland - 40.00% 7 The vinho verde colour suggests a very light whiskey, and this certainly is, in both body and flavour. This bottling seems markedly thinner than the last vintage I tasted.
Knappogue Castle Twin Wood 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Republic of Ireland - 40.00% 7 Nose and palate are completely different. The second saving the first. The palate shows a beautiful Irish character whereas the nose is bland. So drink it without nosing it.
Irish Whiskey is entering a golden age hanks to the efforts of entrepreneurs such as Mark Andrews, Gary Regan met this king of Knappogue Castle.
