Fly Like An Eagle,
Sang Steve Miller and his band back in the day.
Well this Skibbereen Eagle certainly made my palate fly!
At 57% it’s remarkably shy on the nose – spirity alright – yet clean & fresh.
The palate belied the high ABV offering warming vanilla & soft caramel from the bourbon cask maturation – all before a lipsmackingly enjoyable alcoholic punch made it’s presence felt.
A prickly tingling sensation & gently fading flavours followed on the finish.
This is a West Cork Distillers whiskey available on the German market for €33 – prices correct as of September 2019.
Fabulous stuff indeed!
