The Celtic Whiskey Bar & Larderdie in Killarney, Co. Kerry is not one of those typical old Irish pubs, but if you are a whiskey lover, you’ll have found heaven! Especially if you want to try something different that is not sold in most pubs. Many are 20 or more years old and if you like what you sample, you can even buy a bottle then and there.
My Pick of the Day is Bushmills Artist Reserve 15 years.
A special edition Bushmills that was released at around the turn of the millennium for the German market. This was aged in a single sherry cask which yielded just 350 bottles.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Almonds, cinnamon buns, sandalwood and caramel.
Palate: Milk chocolate, old furniture, pineapple and yet more sweet, nutty notes.
Finish: Final drying notes of dark chocolate and oak spice.
