Hinch 18 Year Old Single Malt Château De La Ligne Finish

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
