Part of the multi award winning THE WILD GEESE® IRISH WHISKEY COLLECTION, three times voted best Irish Whiskey. The whiskeys in THE WILD GEESE® RARE IRISH WHISKEY are unique and exclusive to THE WILD GEESE® COLLECTION, distilled By Cooley Distillery on behalf of THE WILD GEESE® and cannot be found anywhere else.
It is produced using an Extended Double Distillation process for a much smoother product with distinctive character. The resultant, richer distillate is matured in single-use white oak ‘Bourbon’ casks, among the most exceptional in the industry.
The Wild Geese® Rare Irish is perfect for enjoying straight but also lends itself to a range of whiskey cocktail recipes.
Nose: Citrus fruits, gooseberry and floral notes. Honeysuckle with a peppery overtone.
Taste & Finish: Balanced and smooth. It has a rich malt taste with suggestions of citrus fruits and oak. There is a subtle hint of honey on the higher notes. The finish is long, sustained and loyal to the taste.
