Dunvilles VR Single Malt 10 year old Irish Whiskey
After the success of the very modern Feckin' Irish Whiskey brand, Northern Irishman Shane Braniff of Echlinville Distillery was inspired to draw on a little heritage, so he bought the rights to the famous old Dunville's brand.
There are over 100 years of, sometimes turbulent, history in the family owned distillery (and tea importer). The VR 10-year-old has been their most popular whiskey, launched in 1837 and named after Queen Victoria, when she ascended the throne. Unfortunately, Dunville & Co. was liquidated in 1936 due, in part, to family tragedies and Prohibition in the USA.
The 10-year-old is a very intriguing release, with plenty of orchard fruit, custard and old fashioned sweetie notes. It was crowned Best Irish Single Malt Under 12 Years at the 2015 World Whiskies Awards and was honoured with this accolade again in the 2016 Awards.

With a complexity seldom found in such a delicate Single Malt, this expression is worthy of its Royal Ancestral past, this legendary whiskey will once again take its rightful place amongst the premier whiskeys of the world. - 2015
The nose is sweet and varied with cake spices, dried apple, poached clementines, vanilla and gentle, toasted oak. The palate is thick and spicy with sandalwood, musky spice, nutmeg and all-spice, vanilla and some citrus pith. Juicy and pleasant on the finish with some lingering wood. - 2016Learn More£70.50Out of stock.
