Grace O’Malley Irish Whiskey burst onto the scene a few years ago with their bold imagery re-energising & modernising the Pirate Queen the whiskey is named after.
Being blenders, bonders & independent bottlers, Grace O’Malley can stock barrels from any number of Irish Whiskey Distilleries & use them to create their own unique style.
I still have remnants of their Dark Char & Rum Cask – which you can read about here – but it’s the newly released Rum Cask I’m focusing on today.
First thing I notice is the pale colour – reassuring perhaps of no added colour?
A rich dark sweetness on the aroma – rum wine gums anyone?
Smooth, sweet & deliciously mouth coating on the palate.
A gorgeous growing frisson of warm spice – getting nutmeg & cinnamon – on the finish with just a hint of funky depth to top things off.
An engaging little number from the Grace O’Malley fleet.
