Only 1,200 bottles of this limited-edition single malt were produced, with the casks being put down in 1994 and 1996. It is a very unique bottling of two single malts aged 21 and 23 years. Copper pot stills used in their distillation and the finest Irish malted barley forms the base.
Our experts say: The Knappogue 21 has a magnificent colour. This is non-chill filtered limited whiskey, 9 bottles of which we were fortunate enough to bring to Japan in early 2019. The nose has a deep complexity and offers hours of joy. Intense aromas give a caramel undertone and beautiful nutty characteristics, reminiscent of a Parisian pastry shop on a Sunday morning. On the palate there is a sense of well-made whiskey with a strong alcoholic content perfectly integrated into the distillate. A milky chocolate debut yields to a long finish. We find raisins and dates and interestingly a kind of dairy, almost lactic, characteristic sometimes found in a Sancerre. A long finish, strong on apricots like its younger brothers, and just a joy to enjoy around a warm fire.
