The Bridge is an apt name for this series of limited release whiskey from the yet to be built Lough Ree Distillery.
Not only does it bridge the gap for their own whiskey to mature, it also takes you on a journey of discovery.
Lough Ree are also on a journey by bridging links with local craft brewery St Mel’s for the Brown Ale casks used to finish this ex-bourbon cask matured single malt.
A welcoming rich, warm & inviting nose of toffee & butterscotch pulls you in.
Silky smooth on the palate, St Mel’s has a luxurious mouthfeel with characterful depth & complexity.
A gorgeous gently drying spiciness wraps up this delightful whiskey.
The Bridge whiskey series tend to sell out – so grab one while you can.
This St Mel’s release took me on a particularly enjoyable journey.
