THE QUIET MAN IMPERIAL STOUT FINISH
Derry | ABV 43%
Another excellent small batch Irish whiskey from Derry whiskey company the Quiet Man.
This is a blend of grain and single pot still whiskies, that has been aged in former Bourbon casks, before a finishing period in Imperial Stout casks. Imperial Stout is a stronger (usually about 9% ABV), dark style of beer with powerful chocolaty and umami flavours. Alongside the sweetness provided by the Bourbon cask, this maturation produces a complex and flavoursome whiskey.
The Quite Man Imperial Stout offers up notes of dark chocolate, vanilla, grassy malt and cereal sweetness, raisins, roasted oak, hops, cream and treacle.
