While we build our whiskey distillery, we have sourced a blend of malt and grain whiskeys that when blended together deliver a signature soft mouth feel and a silken, easy character.
Inspired by the tales of the mythical Silkie seals of the Donegal coast, The Legendary Silkie Irish Whiskey a balanced blend of double and triple distilled single malts, soft grain whiskey and a hint of peated malt. It is bottled by hand at 46% ABV and is non chill-filtered for a distinctively rich character. Although higher in ABV, The Legendary Silkie is exceptionally smooth with crisp green apple to the fore, ripe red fruits, gentle smoke and an oaky sweetness which gives way to a long lingering finish of gently warming spice.
The Legendary Dark Silkie Irish Whiskey is the first addition to The Legendary Silkie Irish Whiskey Collection. We have taken a bold step with Dark Silkie in recreating the taste of Donegal whiskey in the 19th century, which will reintroduce drinkers to the rich smoky peated Irish Whiskey.
Dark Silkie has at its core a triple distilled peated single malt which is matured in sherry casks. This single malt is peated to 55ppm (parts per million) which after the triple distillation results in a phenol level around 22ppm giving a rich sweet smoky flavour. The peated single malt is blended with a double distilled single malt matured in bourbon barrels and soft grain whiskey matured in virgin oak casks.
