We’d like to introduce you to a very special release that has been in the pipeline for quite some time. Something that has never been done as far as “Uisce beatha” can be remembered!
In June 2020, we made the decision to fill two incredibly unique casks with some truly special liquid. This was a cask style we were very familiar with here at Blacks, but something completely new to even the most renowned whiskey connoisseurs. The idea stemmed from our desire to push the boundaries for Irish Spirits and continue to bring about new and innovative releases.
Creating the first ever Irish Rum is something we are immensely proud of here in Kinsale and when our second release “Blacks Golden Rum” took home the Gold Medal at the World Rum Awards last year, we knew it was time to do something innovative with the casks that previously held this liquid gold!
We searched high and low and finally found a limited amount of aged Single Malt Whiskey we knew would match up to the characteristics of these casks.
After constant sampling and endless hours of profiling we decided the time was right and in April 2021 we pulled the plug to end the maturation on this treasure.
The result being, a World’s first for Irish Whiskey – an Irish Rum Cask Finish.
We’d now like to introduce you to the newest member of the Blacks Family – Blacks 18 year Old Single Malt – Irish Rum Cask Finish. The World’s first ever Irish Whiskey finished in an Irish Rum cask. A whiskey lover’s dream come true! Limited to 563 individually numbered bottles, each in its very own bespoke treasure chest style box.
Get transported to a World never travelled before by an Irish whiskey drinker!
Aroma: Opens with confected aromas of vanilla maple syrup, sticky toffee pudding and candied fruit. Slight hints of coffee beans are set aside by the oak wood undertones, before being reminded of banoffee pie and tropical desserts.
Palate: A velvet soft, toffee rich mouthfeel gives way to notes of caramel coated nuts and butter baked biscuits. Sweet malt and rum spices then demand your attention as exotic fruit notes push to the forefront of your palate.
Finish: An amazingly complex finish with lingering nutmeg spices and dried sultanas fading out before being left with the oak wood undertones that characterised this whiskey for the first 18 years of its life.
With only 563 bottles produced, this super premium Limited Edition Single Malt is one every whiskey lover wants in their collection. A velvet soft cask strength beauty sitting at 56% ABV, having been characterised by the very same Rum casks that took home the Gold Medal at the World Rum Awards 2020! This collectors item comes in its very own bespoke treasure chest style presentation box.
