Silkie – The Legendary Dark – Irish Whiskey
Sliabh Liag Distillers has shown its smoky side with this Irish blend, dubbed The Legendary Dark Silkie! Taking inspiration from 19th century Donegal whiskey, a triple distilled peated single malt is at the core of this expression, peated to about 22ppm and matured in sherry casks. It’s then blended with a bourbon-matured single malt as well as a grain whiskey having been rested in virgin oak. The result? A fruity, subtly smoky and dry bottling which is sure to convert Irish whiskey lovers to a hint of peat!
