St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with a glass of Irish whiskey? Here are three whiskeys that are sure to make your celebration a success.
First up is West Cork Black Cask. This whiskey is aged in charred oak casks, which gives it a unique smoky flavour. It has tasting notes of vanilla, caramel, and toasted oak, and finishes with a smooth, warming sensation.
Next is Dingle Single Malt Whiskey. This whiskey is made in small batches, using only Irish malted barley and spring water. It has a fruity aroma, with hints of apple, pear, and citrus. On the palate, it is sweet and spicy, with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Last but not least is Redbreast 12. This whiskey is aged in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, giving it a rich, complex flavor. It has tasting notes of dried fruit, toasted nuts, and a hint of spice. The finish is long and smooth, with a touch of sweetness.
To really get into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit, try making an Irish coffee. Here’s a simple recipe:
- 35ml Irish whiskey
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 120ml hot coffee
- Lightly whipped cream
- Combine the Irish whiskey and sugar in a tall glass with a handle, like a latte glass
- Add the hot coffee and stir to combine.
- Top with whipped cream. (Clinks tip: pour the cream over the back of a teaspoon on top of the coffee to stop it sinking)
