Greenore 15 Year irish Single Grain Whiskey
A new limited edition (just 5000 bottles worldwide) 15 year old single grain whiskey from Cooley distillery. Greenore has an unparalleled elegance and a crisp clarity from the focus on one grain. The aromas lead gently with quince and lemon zest, caramel corn alongside of toffee, vanilla, honey and oak. To taste, the smooth honey flavor starts with almonds and juicy grain that evolve to include soft spice, vanilla and clean caramel. As the finish approaches, the honey flavor dawdles and warms to show some delicate spices that- in turn- lead to a delectable dry evanescence. Enjoy this lovely whiskey neat or with a touch of ice-- the less you add to it, the more you get from it.
