Waterford "Single Farm Origin: Rathclogh 1.1" Single Malt Irish Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1502127 Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark Orange and grapefruit aromas, with rosewater, vanilla cream, bergamot oil, and dry barley notes, though the nose also detects the high alcohol and some youthful notes. The flavor coalesces around clove and pepper, but en route there are sweet barley cereal notes, chocolate, and malt. After a prolonged swarm of spice, the finish has malted milk and old chocolate.

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is part of a series of single malts made with barley from a single farm. The aroma is mild, almost neutral. A lemony pucker frames toasted barley, a fleeting almond note and a long, mouthwatering finish that suggests oyster brine. (KN) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

K&L Notes

The new project by Bruichladdich front man Mark Reynier is an exercise in extreme terroir (or TÉIREOIR in Gaelic). Using barley grown on one specific farm, the Single Farm Origin series offer an uber-provenance experience exploring the significance of place in barley and whiskey production. These intentionally spirit forward whiskies are completely unadulterated - no coloring, chill-filtration or any additives whatsoever. Rathclogh Edition 1.1 was grown by Richard Raftice. Situated in an area of strategic military importance, Rathclogh farm (Stone Fort) is right on the old Kilkenny to Waterford road. Even the Vikings appreciated the superior positioning of the fort, which overlooks Richard Raftice's fields. The low lying quick-drying, shallow gravel soils deposited by an ancient glacier offer an early sowing and quick ripening terroir. Aged in a the following barrels before bottling at 100 proof: 31% first-fill US oak, 19% virgin US oak, 25% premium French oak and 25% Vin Doux Naturel (sweet fortified wines). Each bottle of Single Farm Origin: Rathclogh Edition 1.1 has a TÉIREOIR code, which offers an unparalleled level of bottling information on the barley, maps, imagery and even audio from the farms. TÉIREOIR CODE: F016E01-01
