Made from 100% Irish-grown barley, Single Farm Origin: Dunmore Edition 1.1 was grown by John Tynan in County Laois. At the top of John Tynan’s barley fields, within a striking circular copse of trees, is the early medieval fort that lends the townland its name – An Dún Mór, the big fort – a reminder of turbulent times of lore. Nestled between the Slieve Bloom Mountains & the Castlecomer Plateau of County Laois is this westerly-facing, lowland terroir, of limestone-derived loamy drift that harbours a compact gravelly tilth.
Cask composition: 33% first fill US oak, 18% virgin US oak, 25% premium French oak and 24% Vin Doux Naturel (sweet fortified wines).
NOSE: Malty, raisins, orange chocolate, black peppercorns, citrus fruits, red currants, a nose that is like eating a light cinnamon porridge while sitting in a worn leather chair.
PALATE: Spice rack bomb, green apple, marzipan, lemon sherbet, liquorice, grapefruit, dark chilly chocolate, popping candy.
FINISH: Warm clove that tingles on your tongue and then becomes mouth-watering.
