Skibbereen Eagle, Single Cask, 57%

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!
