An exquisite 32-Year-Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey finished in a Purple Muscat cask. This rare single cask bottling is an evolution of the award-winning “World’s Best” 24, 28, and 30-Year-Old Single Malt and continues the legacy of excellence in Irish craftsmanship. Distilled in 1990, matured in bourbon barrels for 28 years and finished in a single Portuguese Purple Muscat French Oak cask for an additional four years, the result is the first bottling of the Very Rare Casks Collection
For this bottling, the team turned their attention to a unique cask, Purple Muscat, to create a truly exceptional single malt unlike any available in the United States. Master Distiller Alex Chasko sourced the Portuguese Purple Muscat barrel from outside of Lisbon in the Setubal region, selecting a toasted French Oak cask with rich berry and fruit notes. The result is a magnificent, fruit-forward Single Malt Irish Whiskey that carries a juicy red berry flavour with spicy tropical notes.
