Our 5 Year Old Double Wood is a premium blend of Single Malt and Single Grain whiskeys with the contemporary twist of Virgin Oak cask aging.
Matured for a minimum of 4 years in the finest first fill bourbon casks followed by a further 1 year in Virgin Oak casks. Hinch 5 Year Old Double Wood is golden brown in appearance with distinct and intense citrus fruit on the nose, big spice and mocha notes on the palate are matched with a balanced fruit undercurrent. Bold, innovative, contemporary Irish whiskey proudly made in County Down.
The nose is sweet and creamy with a touch of intense citrus fruit, adding a burst of freshness to the aroma. notes of zesty lemon peel are complemented by rich vanilla cream, subtle hints of tobacco, and a light woody undertone.
On the palate, the whiskey is smooth and creamy with big spice and mocha notes. the creamy vanilla flavours are enhanced by warm cinnamon and oak spice, which add a pleasant depth and complexity. the mocha notes come through, providing a subtle bitterness that balances the sweetness of the fruit flavours.
The finish is long and satisfying, with honeyed fresh fruit flavours dominating the palate. The taste of fresh melon and milk chocolate digestives come through, followed by a subtle lingering spice that adds a gentle warmth to the aftertaste.
