Product Description

A historic Irish landmark, Knappogue Castle was built in 1467 by the MacNamara clan as a defense against the invading Normans. After being vacant for centuries, Lavone Dickensheets Andrews, a Texas architect, and her husband Mark began restoring the castle in 1966. While Lavone supervised the grueling restoration process, Mark began collecting casks of fine Irish whiskey. Over time, he amassed an impressive and rare collection of pure pot still whiskey produced at the B. Daly Distillery, and when it reached its ideal maturity, it was bottled and named after the castle. Over time, Knappogue Castle has gained a reputation for their exceptional vintage bottlings, but their twelve and sixteen year old releases definitely do not disappoint.

Triple distilled in copper pot stills, then aged in bourbon oak casks for twelve years, Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old is a mellow, well rounded single malt. The nose offers rich, malty notes of grain which are accented by hints of pepper and spice. The palate is balanced, focused and smooth, with complex flavors of brown sugar, vanilla, oak and marzipan backed by elegant fruit notes. F. Paul Pacult considers this release "one of the best Knappogue Castle bottlings to date" and an "excellent value".
