Dunvilles Three Crowns Irish Whiskey
Until recently the only place you could find a bottle of Three Crowns was at auction. Now, Echlinville distillery has revived this great whiskey to bring its flavour to a new generation. The original "Three Crowns" was introduced way back in 1830's and lasted around 100 years before being discontinued. Many bottles are still in circulation and the original style of the whiskey was similar to Dunville's "VR" with the "Three Crowns" using more sherry casks for the maturation.
It's a blended whiskey made up with 4 year old grain, 10 year old malt and 15 year old malt finished in Oloroso casks. This heavenly selection makes an eminently drinkable dram with a sweet and smooth palate and a soft, lingering finish.Learn More£41.50Out of stock.
Dunvilles Peated Three Crowns Irish Whiskey
The owner of Echlinville Distillery, Shane Braniff, had a dream that he would bring Dunville's whiskey back to the world, 80 years after the last Dunville's whiskey was distilled, and he has. Not only the award winning Dunville's PX but also the Dunville's Three Crowns and now this, peated to perfection!
Find aromas of light honey and mocha with a little light smoke drifting over. The palate is long and slightly fruity with over-ripe gooseberries, while mocha and smoke make their quiet pleas for attention on the finish. Think butterscotch, subdued smoke, milk chocolate, stewed pear, earthy, vanilla, cinnamon and dried apricots.
“Even people purporting not to like peated whiskey will have a problem finding fault with this. This is a rare treat of an Irish.” Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2018Learn More£49.00
Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Bourbon
The Double Oaked Woodford has extra flavours of spicy oak with vanilla and caramel notes over the standard, although wonderful, Woodford Reserve bourbon. Maturation in new charred white oak barrels and then, before bottling, heavily toasted, lightly charred finishing barrels give it quite a different flavour to normal. This innovative approach creates the extra special rich and colourful flavour.
Aroma: Rich notes of dark fruit, caramel, sharp honey, chocolate, marzipan and toasted oak. Taste: A full-bodied mix of vanilla, dark caramel, hazelnut, apple, fruit and spices. Finish: Long and creamy with lingering hints of honeyed apple.
