The Legendary Silkie Blended Irish Whiskey 46% 70cl
Although it sounds like it's describing the texture of the whiskey itself, 'Silkie' is so named after seal-like creatures who were able to shapeshift into human form - namely beautiful maidens with long dark hair and delicate voices. In essence, mermaids.
But handily, the name does also give a good indication of what the whiskey itself offers. Produced by Donegal-based distillers Sliabh Liag Distillers (pronounced 'sleeve leeg'), this is a combinaton of 70% column distilled corn whiskey aged in re-charred barrels, 15% unpeated double distilled single malt aged in ex-Bourbon barrels, 13% unpeated triple distilled single malt spirit and 2% peated triple distilled single malt spirits, both aged in Sherry casks.
There's a lovely sweet fruity note throughout - the nose itself reminds me of Fruit Salad sweets. That merest hint of peated whiskey does add an extra dimension, but there's a lovely tropical fruit feel which makes this immensely drinkable!
