Concannon Distillery Irish Whiskey
A refined blend of malt and grain whiskeys, Concannon Irish Whiskey is craft distilled for proper balance of character and purity, then matured in a combination of ex-bourbon barrels and Concannon wine barrels for a minimum of four years. With a full, clean taste delicately balanced between honey sweet, citrus and malt flavors, and a fresh oak finish, Concannon Irish Whiskey can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks or in a variety of premium cocktails.
This venture from Cooley Distillery and Concannon Vineyard brings a whiskey aged in ex-Bourbon casks for at least four years, then rested for at least four months in barrels that previously held Concannon Petite Sirah. The end result is light-bodied and silky, with smoky flavor and touches of vanilla and lemon zest on the finish. Some might hope for a more wine-like profile, but it's pleasing nevertheless.
