Kinahan's - Single Malt 10 Year OldChocolate Notes
They say that Jerry Thomas made Kinahan’s his whiskey of choice in 1862. A sniff today might reveal molten honey, flapjacks, dry grist, and a fresh apple Danish (apple, custard, and pastry).
The palate has a nip of lozenge sweeties, more apples, peppermint, vanilla, and a slow slide into chocolate, lemon pith, and cocoa. The 25% malt content presses home the flavour.
It’s a blend of fine quality, and Kinahan’s revival adds to the resurgence of Dublin’s whiskey story.
