Wine Enthusiast 92 points – An easy, elegant sipper, look for a gentle vanilla-caramel-almond profile on the nose and palate as well as a silky feel. Mild baked pear and dried apricot midpalate wind into a cinnamon and clove finish. Sip or mix..Kara Newman, March/2017
Whisky Advocate 90 points – Brown-Forman deployed a triple-cask finishing process on mature sourced whiskeys, involving virgin oak, refill, and sherry casks. A lovely fruity complexity ensues, with blackberry, apple-toffee notes, malt, vanilla, and sherry influences. Butterscotch with nutty undertones, herbal notes verging toward spicy, and hints of dried apple, red berries, and a touch of leather roll into the finish. You want complexity, intrigue, and flavor for thirty bucks? Look no further. Reviewed by: Jonny McCormick (Fall 2017).October/2017
Nestled deep within the idyllic Boyne Valley on the legendary grounds of Slane Castle, Slane Distillery brings you a whiskey that bears our village’s iconic name. Slane Whiskey is aged using our signature ’Tripled Casked’ method. This involves resting our Grain and Malt whiskies between three different cask types; Virgin Oak, Seasoned Oak and Oloroso Sherry. These casks are then blended to create an exceptionally complex, smooth Irish whiskey. This whiskey is our testament to the character of the people of Slane and to all those who take pride in building their own legacy.
