Powerscourt releases Fercullen 18yo Irish whiskey
Created by master distiller Noel Sweeney, Fercullen 18-Year-Old has been aged in Bourbon barrels.
Tasting notes include aromas of honey, vanilla, almonds, plums, and oak wood, leading to flavours of creamy malt, vanilla, ripe fruits, syrupy caramel and spice on the palate. The finish is said to be malty with a long-lasting sweet spice.
Powerscourt celebrated the launch at Whiskey Live Dublin on 22 and 23 November and will showcase the new expression at the festive edition of Taste of Dublin in the RDS venue from 28 November until 1 December.
Fercullen 18-Year-Old has been bottled at 43% ABV and will be priced at RRP €140 (approximately US$154). It will be available to purchase from The Celtic Whiskey Shop, L Mulligan, Mitchell & Son, James Fox, Redmonds of Ranelagh, and from the distillery visitor center gift. It is also available to order online via www.powerscourtdistillery.com.
The 18-year-old single malt joins the brand’s existing whiskeys: Fercullen 10-Year-Old Single Grain Whiskey, Fercullen Premium Blend Irish Whiskey, and Fercullen 14-Year-Old Single Malt Whiskey.
