Clonakilty Single Batch Double Oak Irish Whiskey
Clonakilty Single Batch Double Oak Finish is the flagship of Clonakilty’s Cask Finish Series.
A premium product matured in ex-bourbon casks, it is finished in virgin American oak; and shaved, toasted and re-charred ex-red wine European oak casks (NEOC, New Era of Cask).
This makes it the world’s first Irish whiskey to be finished in a NEOC cask. NEOC are ex-red wine barrels from the Bordeaux region of France. They are hand-shaved by traditional coopers, and re-toasted according to each individual distiller’s specification.
