The quality of the distillate and distillers’ cuts is evident in this young whiskey and is further proof that Killowen does not need many years to become whiskey, it simply is, in of itself beautiful. We understand that this traditional whiskey should be smoked – only aged in an ex-bourbon cask, in an attempt to pair back the spirit to it’s simplest form. As Killowen is a ‘distillate led’ whiskey, the bourbon cask allows the consumer to enjoy a more paired back whiskey that is confident of its complex and balanced character and therefore does not need a heavy cask to dress it up. Sometimes whiskey enthusiasts understand there are too many whiskeys out there that are ‘all fur coat and no knickers’. That said plenty of Killowen’s future releases will sport the most brilliant fur coats.

As standard this bottling follows all the Killowen ethos, cask strength, no chilled filtration and no added colours, therefore this is an integrity bottling so please open and share.

KILLOWEN BARÁNTÚIL Irish Whiskey Cask 24 is here!


Fresh orange rind with a hint of Lemon but separately peppermint makes an appearance. The Killowen DNA starts to emerge with notes of Mourne peatlands

Although it’s not the main note mint leaf is in abundance along with chocolate orange and mellon. The texture is lathery and prolongs the pallet before the finish

Returning to the Mourne wetlands once again with notes of turf, this time with spring floral notes. The cooling sensation of mint is not common among peated whiskeys but is certainly evident in this cask. At the very end pine forest notes begin to emerge just before you begin you next sip.

This bottling does not comply with the requirements of the GI governing Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey which allows for 5% adjuncts of oat, rye and wheat. Instead the mash bill has around 30% , the way Pure Pot Still was made in the heyday of Irish whiskey. The remaining mash bill consists of malted and unmalted barley – you will have to check out the packaging for the mash specifics. We look forward to the correction of this legislation and it’s alignment with historical accuracy. Until then we will continue to make this beautiful whiskey the way it should be made.
