Roe & Co has released their latest offering, a premium Single Malt Irish Whiskey: Roe & Co Cask Strength 2020 Edition.
The thirteen-year-old Single Malt, was matured in Port Casks, 'soaking up its rich depth of flavour.'
Port Casks have long been known for the intense flavour it can impress upon spirit and this release is no exception, with an intricate array of dark berry, chocolate and spice notes it is a whiskey of supreme quality, the whiskey maker said.
Bottled at the natural cask strength of 58% ABV, Roe & Co Cask Strength 2020 Edition truly showcases the flavour of the whiskey straight from the barrel, it added.
The quality and intense flavour attributed by the casks is immediately apparent on the palate through its velvety texture, molasses, honey-roast barley, hints of fresh ground coffee and cherry ripe chocolate bars.
Alan Mulvihill, global brand ambassador at Roe & Co commented, “For me this is perhaps my most anticipated release to date, not because of its age or because of the fact that it is a single malt but because once again we get to shine a light on the inherent base processes of whiskey production; excellently distilled Irish spirit, amazing casks and no interruption by human contact."
"This is whiskey at its most raw and I love it,” he added.
While Roe & Co Cask Strength 2020 Edition is the second part of a limited series, following the release of a cask strength bourbon aged liquid in 2019, this is Roe & Co’s first Single Malt offering.
Roe & Co Cask Strength 2020 Edition is available in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland from 9 November at specialist whiskey stores, O’Briens Wine, Beer and Spirits and its Dublin Distillery.
RRP €74.00 (Republic of Ireland), £50.00 (Northern Ireland).
