A 12yo blended Irish whiskey, Special Reserve has been assembled from a mixture of bourbon and oloroso sherry casks. Originally launched for the travel retail market, this 12 year old Irish blend is full of sweetness and sublimely smooth.
Scones with clotted cream and vinous strawberry jam, sultanas, dates and digestive biscuits. Linseed and honey.
Light and soft with hints of gentle spices (nutmeg, allspice), a touch of honey and creamy fruits in yoghurt.
Medium length with a little oaky/nutty bittersweetness.
