I can’t help feeling single grain whiskey is still trying to escape the slur Messers Jameson x2, Roe & Power attached to it back in 1879 labelling the category as ‘Silent Whisky’ in their anti-Coffey-Still publication ‘Truths About Whisky’.
Powerscourt Distillery’s latest Fercullen Amarone Cask Finish Single Grain is anything but silent.
There’s a bright inviting nose bursting with soft, sweet juiciness.
Very expressive indeed.
Gentle & sweet on the palate.
Grows with intensity exhibiting a warming glow, hints of nuttiness & an engaging tingly finish.
Fercullen Amarone expands the horizons of the single grain category.
This sample was tasted as part of the online Celtic Whiskey Club events calendar.
