Currently (early 2015) only available in Europe, this 21 Year is a whisky sourced from the Cooley Distillery, formerly owned by the Teeling family. This is a single malt aged initially in ex-bourbon casks before a final year of finishing in ex-Sauternes wine casks. This release was distilled in 1991 and 5000 bottles are available in this first release.

Tasting Notes

"Tropical fruits hit the senses with this whiskey, mango perhaps? Cooked banana? These notes continue on the palate with a bit of dried ginger, fresh grass, and pastry dough. Depending on your palate, this may be too fruit-forward for you, but I'd suggest trying this with a cheese plate for your dessert."
