Casks containing the Chateau's Grande Reserve, both Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot, were emptied and refilled with fine Irish Single Malt whiskey that has spent 19 years maturing in Kentucky bourbon barrels. The addition of a further six month finishing period in the Grande Reserve wine casks has delivered this majestic whiskey for you to enjoy. We felt it would only be fair to also include, for your enjoyment, a bottle of the Chateau de la Ligne Grande Reserve which has played such an important role in our 19 Year Old Single Malt.
The chorus of inﬂuences brought to bear from ﬁnishing this whiskey in Chateau de la Ligne Grande Reserve casks elevates the already superb into becoming the absolutely sublime. Bold, innovative, contemporary Irish whiskey proudly made in County Down.
Chateau de la Ligne Grande Reserve has a deep and sustained red colour, the Grande Reserve develops aromas of fleshy red fruits with exotic notes of vanilla and sweet spices. The attack on the palate is frank and full of coated tannins, which reveal notes of tobacco. It is a very balanced wine where the notes of fruit and spices harmonize and leave themselves to be desired on along and intense finish.
• Age of vines -18 years
• Aging & ABV -12 months in oak barrels & 14.5% ABV.
This very rare release sees the production of just 1750 bottles presented in a beautiful gift box, also containing a 750ml bottle of the Chateau de la Ligne Grande Reserve which has played such a significant role in the final whiskey.
