    Kinahan’s whiskey was founded by Daniel Kinahan in 1779, with generations of the Kinahan family ensuring it became renowned for taste and character. In 1807, Charles Lennox, the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, was so impressed with a particular bottling that he ordered all barrels at the Kinahan family cellars be kept exclusively for his private use, marking each cask with 'LL' - a mark that now adrons every bottle from the resurrected brand, which was relaunched in 2014. Looking to stand out in an increasingly crowded Irish whiskey market, the new team looked at cask maturation, and became the first Irish whiskey producer to mature in 'hybrid' casks, using casks that had been constructed using staves from a variety of different types.

    Kinahan's currently source their spirit from other Irish distilleries, but so much focus is put on the maturation side that it's not really fair to say it isn't 'their' whiskey. And a purpose built distillery is imminent, meaning they can work from scratch with their own new make.

    The KASC Project is an experiment in whiskey-making, using wood as the key factor of flavour design and construction. Each Project whiskey is finished in hand-made “hybrid” casks, individually constructed from 5 different types of trees from unique origins: Portuguese Oak, American Oak, French Oak, Hungarian Oak and Chestnut. The aim is to create multi-dimensional flavour and character to, in this case, a marriage of grain and malt spirit initially matured in ex-Bourbon casks.

    There's a delicious soft spice feel to the liquid, with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon giving a delicate festive vibe. A thread of tropical fruit weaves through notes of apple crumble and toffee sauce, making this deliciously complex. If this is what hybrid casks can achieve, then I'm all for it!
