Knappogue Castle Irish Whiskey Launches New Cask Finish Series

Knappogue Castle Irish Whiskey Launches New Cask Finish Series

The first expression in the new range of single malts will feature Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old Irish Whiskey aged in French oak casks from renowned Bordeaux winery, Château Pichon Baron

NEW YORK, NY (November 2018) -- Knappogue Castle Irish Whiskey is thrilled to announce the launch of their new Cask Finish Series, beginning with their classic 12 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey finished in French oak casks from renowned Bordeaux winery, Château Pichon Baron. With only 1,020 bottles set for production, the new limited release expression is expected to hit shelves in US markets beginning in November 2018, and will be available in select markets for a suggested retail price of $80.

The Cask Finish Series is the latest in Knappogue Castle’s history of successful specialty limited releases. Earlier this year, the brand unveiled their exclusive 21 Year Old Single Malt edition, and currently have plans for additional Barolo and Marsala wine cask finished expressions slated to launch in early 2019.

“We’re very excited to share our newest Knappogue Castle Cask Finish Series,” states Mark Andrews, Chairman of Castle Brands Inc. “It’s an honor to partner with the team at Château Pichon Baron on our first expression in the series, and we are looking forward to offering Knappogue Castle fans even more expressions as we continue to expand the series going into 2019.”

The Knappogue Castle Château Pichon Baron limited release is matured in bourbon barrels for a minimum of 12 years, then further aged in casks from the renowned Bordeaux winery. Made exclusively from malted barley, and distilled in copper pot stills, the liquid is non-chill filtered and bottled at 92 proof. The nose is soft & fruity, with notes of strawberry and red berry nuances. On the palate, expect hints of juicy, sweet berry fruit coming through with red apple and strawberry, ending with hints of vanilla, spice & dry oak.
