A classic Irish Single Pot Still Spirit aged in ex-Bourbon casks and finished in rare Irish oak from the Knockrath Forrest.

Irish Distillers is the wonderfully stubborn subsidiary of Liquor-giant Pernon-Ricard… and we should all be glad that they are. That’s because they stubbornly adhere to their time-tested methods and practices for making the world’s most popular Irish Whiskies. Irish Distillers makes the famous Jameson, Powers, Paddy, Redbreast, Green Spot, and Midleton Very Rare Whiskies along with Huzzar Vodka and Cork Dry Gin.

Midleton created the Very Rare Dair Ghaelach series to celebrate the natural woods growing in the hills, forests, and moors of the Emerald Isle. The Knockrath Estate sits south of Dublin near the east coast and has been managed by the Brabazon Family for four hundred years.

Midleton Very Rare Dair Ghaelach Knockrath Forest is classic Single Pot Still Spirit aged first in ex-Bourbon casks and finished in virgin Irish Oak hogshead casks from the estate. The wood is sustainably harvested and rare, so this match yielded just forty-two casks. All of this attention to detail yields a deep and rich dram with the flavor of the island itself at 56.5% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
"Dair Ghaelach" translates as "Irish Oak" or "Gaelic Oak."

Ratings & Reviews
Like velvet on the way down; woody notes with a thick, honey-like consistency and sweetness. It lingers and I always pick up a spiciness towards the end which caps it off nicely. Warm and smooth; a great glass to raise on a special occasion.
Absolutely perfect
