The mermaids beckon you... With peaty Irish Whiskey!

"Up here it's different," says the slogan of County Donegal. It's Irish, no doubt about that, yet it's a unique place, home to hauntingly beautiful glens and cliffs. But it also has a rich history in illegal distilling, Poitín in particular. Mountain Dew or Devil's Spittle, as it's known, is a pot-still Spirit that can reach up to 180 proof and is the reason behind Donegal at one point having more illicit stills than the rest of the country put together. But all that was ages ago. Today? Well, Sliabh Liag Distillers are planning to return the county to its former glory with Silkie Irish Whiskey.

The brand new distillery is still under construction, so they have turned to sourcing a couple double-distilled and lightly peated triple-distilled Single Malts, as well as some soft grain Whiskey for this expression. The Legendary Dark Silkie draws inspiration from the legends of the mermaids, the Silkies that would shed their seal skins in order to walk on land. Non-chill filtered, lightly peated, and uncolored, this Whiskey is soft with those Irish apple & pear notes, a rich caramel sweetness, and a delicious smokiness to boot. We certainly wouldn't mind a dance with this little mermaid.

Golden Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
Apple, pipe tobacco, spice, oak, and peat smoke greet the nose. It's an unmistakably Irish aroma with a peaty twist.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
It's soft on the palate with caramel, pear, a touch of brine, dark chocolate, licorice, oak, and leather. The smoke makes an entry on the palate as well.

Finish
Finishes warm, smoky, and malty, with a distinct peanut butter note.

Poteen is a Whiskey made from potatoes, or in other words: it's Irish Vodka.
There are many Irish Whiskey varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known. Then there is Poitin, one of the first Spirits ever made.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Irish Coffee recipe: 1 cup freshly brewed strong coffee, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 3-4 tablespoons Irish Whiskey, heavy cream - slightly whipped.
The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
Whiskey producers lose on average about 2% of their stock a year to angels' share. For Jameson, the biggest one of the Irish Whiskey brands, it means 29 thousand bottles going into the air (literally) every day!
