Portmagee Whiskey 70 cl
Portmagee Irish Whiskey is a blend of single malt and single grain Irish whiskey, individually cask married in small batches of six Barbados Rum casks per small batch release.
We have sourced the whiskeys used in this super-premium Irish Whiskey blend from John Teeling’s Great Northern Distillery in Dundalk while our own Portmagee Distillery and Visitor Centre is currently in development.
Our whiskey blender Stuart McNamara spent over six months developing our own unique whiskey style which is blended, married and finished in individual Barbados Rum Casks in homage to Captain Theobald Magee, the 17th century smuggler who gave his name to his home port of Portmagee.
An interesting aside is that Captain Magee (like our current whiskeys) also came to Portmagee from Ireland’s North West as he fled South to Kerry after fighting on the losing Jacobean side in the Battle of the Boyne.
The additional time marrying and finishing in individual Barbados Rum Casks brought a wonderful warmth and elegance to the blend, in particular on the nose and finish. The grain component played a major role in this as it allowed the rum cask influence to shine through. Stuart then added in Single Malt Whiskey to give further depth and character to the blend, stopping short of where the robust Malt flavours could over power the amazing Barbados Rum Cask influence.
Portmagee Irish Whiskey is unique in several other ways.
- Triple Distilled. Blended Married and Finished in individual Barbados Rum Casks.
- Although bottled at 40% ABV, Portmagee 9 is Non Chill-Filtered to retain full flavour.
- There is no added colouring in any Portmagee Whiskey making us quite unique in the whiskey world.
- Portmagee Whiskey is released in small batch release of just six casks at a time with just 2,400 bottles per release.
