JJ Corry The Gael
Named after a Bicycle J.J. Corry invented, Our first release The Gael took us just about two years to develop. First we sourced excellent quality and very rare mature Irish Whiskey. Then we set about classifying each cask we have into a particular flavour block. Finally we began blending to create a Classic Irish Whiskey, one bursting with juicy fruit flavours. The Gael has not spent any time on our farm, rather it is our first attempt at beginning to express the house style of whiskey we would like to make in the coming years, once our own stock is mature. Our first batch is only 7000 bottles.
On the nose: An initial hit of ripe bananas, orange marmalade, lime cordial and lemon meringue, with pencil sharpenings and a touch of cocnut that gets stronger the longer it sits in the glass
In the mouth: A slightly oily texture, with a burst of pepper and then emergent fruit with tinned mandarin, lime juice, lemon bonbons and gooseberry. Obious but not overpowering oak is present, and on the finish chocolate raisins with more fruity sweetness and a slightly drying effect.
