KNAPPOGUE CASTLE TWIN WOOD 16 YEAR OLD IRISH SINGLE MALT WHISKEY
This new release is aged in two types of barrels, a first for the brand. After 15 years and three months in bourbon casks, the whiskey spent a final nine months maturing in casks specially infused with Oloroso Sherry.  This finishing has added complexity and notes of nutty, sherry maltiness to Knappogue Castle’s characteristic smooth, mellow taste.  Mark Andrews III, son of the brand’s founder, developed this latest aged whiskey as a tribute to the brand’s heritage and to commemorate the 6Oth anniversary of Knappogue Castle 1951.  Only 19OO signed and numbered bottles were produced.  Suggested retail is $1OO.  Available from United Liquors.
