The Echlinville Distillery is expanding its award winning Dunville’s Irish Whiskey portfolio with the release of its latest Single Cask Series bottling.
Cask 1717 is an exceptional 20 Year Old Irish Single Malt is finished in the finest Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks.
Bottled at Cask Strength 54.8% abv and limited to a Single Cask of just 290 bottles.
The influence of the twin sherry casks, deep dry Oloroso and juicy sweet Pedro Ximénez is just so wonderfully balanced. Robust, chewy and rich, with initial notes of stewed pears, overly ripened soft red apples, candied orange peel, dark chocolate and Kirsch soaked Black Forest Gateau. Then raisins, prunes, apricot, roasted nuts. Think Christmas pudding drizzled in fig syrup, giving way to an array of warming winter spices, liquorice, stem ginger, clove, nutmeg and cinnamon, all caressed in old leather, cocoa and wonderful dark syrupy muscovado treacle.
Oloroso PX is a new expression for the Single Cask Series, which is already known for its award winning PX Cask Strength, Palo Cortado Sherry Finish and Port Mourant Rum Finish whiskeys. This latest release is also the first 20 year old whiskey and the eldest age statement in the Dunville’s portfolio.
The Single Cask Series showcases the very best whiskeys from Dunville’s warehouses, with each cask bottled at its optimum strength to deliver the stunning palate and rich mouthfeel that has become synonymous with The Spirit of Belfast.
