Following on from the successful launch of Ireland’s first triple-distilled peated single malt whiskey in over half a century at Whiskey Live 2019, W.D. O’Connell Whiskey Merchants have launched the next release in their Peated Series, Bill Phil Batch 01.
Bill Phil Batch 01 is a limited release of 600 bottles at 47.5% ABV, aged exclusively in first fill bourbon barrels. This Triple Distilled Peated Single Malt is Non Chill Filtered and was sourced from the Great Northern Distillery, Dundalk in 2016.
Aroma: Honey glazed ripe pear scented with fragrant bergamot oil, as whispers of apple wood smoke coat the senses.
Palate: Intertwining of grapefruit zest & peat glide across poached pear, waves of phenolic oil dipped over ripen banana & cereal sweetness.
Finish: Sweet cassia float on clarified butter. The delicate smoke laden orchard fruit drift in & out drying out each crevice, lengthening a signature Earl grey tea tannic & clementine fresh oil sweetness.
