Michael Collins 10 Year Single Malt
Michael Collins // Ireland
Double distilled and lightly peated, this single malt is aged in bourbon barrels. This brand was distilled at Cooley Distillery, but as Beam recently purchased that distillery, the whiskey is currently fighting for the right to still be made there. A lawsuit is pending, so if you like this whiskey, buy as much as you can while you can.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"There is a pungent malty quality found along with sweet caramel, moss, and apples. Peat smoke really comes through on the palate along with dried fruits. The finish is of good length with more of a sweet finish than a bitter one. Wood spices are blended nicely throughout the whiskey. "
