18 Year Old Single Malt Château De La Ligne Finish
This Gift Presentation Box is a marriage of founder Dr. Terry Cross’s two great passions – Hinch Irish Whiskey distillery in County Down, Ireland and Cháteau De La Ligne in Bordeaux, France.
Casks containing the Cháteau's ﬁrst ever vintage of Grande Reserve, both Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot, were emptied and reﬁlled with ﬁne Irish Single Malt whiskey that has spent 18 years maturing in Kentucky bourbon barrels. The addition of a further six month ﬁnishing period in the Grande Reserve wine casks has delivered this majestic whiskey for you to enjoy.
Finish has a deep & luscious ruby red appearance. Red summer berries, plum and apple are in abundance, bright, fresh fruit aromas, with a delicate touch of confectioners red liquorice on the nose. Toﬀee, caramel and dark cocoa are elevated by a backbone of sweet vanillins and freshly toasted oak. Nuanced touches of red apple, plum and summer berries clearly represent the inﬂuences of the wine ﬁnish. On the palate this whiskey delivers a multitude of diﬀering layers of ﬂavour all of which are individually both sumptuous and extremely moreish. The 18 years of initial ageing adds huge depth to the overall ﬂavour proﬁle of this superb whiskey. The chorus of inﬂuences brought to bear from its ﬁnishing in Chateau de la Ligne Grande Reserve casks elevates the already superb into becoming the absolutely sublime. Bold, innovative, contemporary Irish whiskey proudly made in County Down
