Ireland’s The Dingle Whiskey Distillery has unveiled its fourth single malt whiskey, which is limited to just 2,000 bottles in the UK.
A marriage of bourbon, sherry and port casks, Batch No 4 Single Malt (46.5% ABV), is described as a “full-flavoured yet harmoniously balanced mix of creamy vanilla sweetness from the American oak casks, combined beautifully with dried fruit flavours of apricot and sultanas from the fortified wine casks”.
The latest single malt expression marks an “impressive increase in production”, following the third release, of which just 2,000 bottles were produced.
Of the 30,000 bottles of Batch No 4 Single Malt produced, 2,000 bottles will be distributed to the UK. A further 500 bottles of a cask strength variant will be available exclusively in the UK and Ireland.
Elliot Hughes, partner at The Dingle Whiskey Distillery, said: “The unveiling of Batch No 4 is particularly exciting as it’s a whiskey married in our three main cask types; bourbon, sherry (Both Pedro Jimenez and Oloroso) as well as port.
“This gives it a really unique point of difference which should once again give people further insight into how our Dingle Whiskey will continue to grow in terms of flavour over the coming years.
“It is also our largest Batch release to date. The vast majority of the increased quantity from Batch 4 will be sold in export markets around the EU and North America which we hope will give a wider, more global audience the opportunity to experience our Dingle Whiskey; from the edge! “
Both expressions will be available to buy from 8 April from Master of Malt, The Whisky Exchange, and Irish Malts.
