The first thing you notice about the new Flintlock release from the award winning Chapel Gate Whiskey is the pale complexion of the 16 year old single malt.
No added colouring here.
The next thing you notice is the rich aroma of vanilla even as you pour the sample into a Túath Glass.
No chill filtering either.
It’s silky smooth in the mouth.
Yet more rich vanilla & light caramel from the bourbon cask maturation.
Some fresh lemony citrus notes.
It softly grows into a gorgeously gentle spiciness which dances off the tongue.
A lovely warming finish rounds up this award winning single malt.
A sample was taken at the Irish Whiskey Awards held in Slane Castle on 18th October 2018 and tasted at home.
