Description

Description

This is both richer and more complex than the standard twelve year old Knappogue Castle. Named ‘Twin Wood’ because both Bourbon and Sherry casks have been used for the maturation. It seems that the sherry casks have added to the body and depth and also brought some spice and dried fruit flavours. Like most of the current Knappogue Castle whiskeys this was made using unpeated, triple distilled single malt whiskey from an unnamed Northern Irish distillery. Limited numbers were made of this whiskey and it is bottled un-chilfiltered at 46%.
