Waterford Bannow Island 1.2, 50%Waterford
This is the second release from Waterford's Single Farm Origin collection, made with barley grown on the south coast of Co. Wexford by Ed Harpur on his Bannow Island farm.
Mark Reynier, best known for his ownership of Bruichladdich distillery between 2000 and 2012, has continued his passion for exploring terroir in this unique collection of Irish whiskies.
By using the finest quality heritage barley grown in single farm estates, he explores the impact on flavour that subtle environmental changes have on the spirit.
This release was aged in exciting combination of first-fill American oak, French oak, virgin oak and sweet wine casks.
This is a light and refreshing whisky with notes of orchard fruits, tea-soaked sultanas and gentle herbs. A great second edition!
