The age of the Knappogue Castle vintage malts has been sneaking up in the last few years since Bushmills took over the supply contract (early Knappogues were from Cooley). Here, finally, Knappogue has cast off its vintage and replaced it with a 12yo age statement. This Knappogue has beeen bottled without artificial colouring.

Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Aroma: Opening inhalations encounter richly biscuity and malty/grainy/breakfast cereal aromas. Several minutes of air contact adds intriguing pepper/vegetal and spice notes.
     
    Taste: Entry is balanced, focused, and integrated, slightly astringent and nicely fruity. Midpalate has delicate tastes of marshmallow, brown sugar, oaky vanilla, and marzipan.
     
    Comment:
     Mellow, well rounded, well balanced, medium intensity; a bright, elegant fruit and mildly spicy taste with a medium-long, clean finish.

    A friend bought me a bottle of this last year as a gift. He runs an internet blues program on which I am a performing guest. The show is usually sprinkled with a few Drams.... This was a real surprise. I remember it as delightful - the best Irish single malt I have tasted. Very delicate, very subtle and quite complex. Another bottle would do very nicely, thankyou.
