- 75% Single Grain; fully matured in a first fill, flame charred, bourbon cask.
- 25% Single Malt; fully matured in a first fill, toasted, Oloroso sherry cask.

Firstly, craft Irish stout from the www.cottonball.ie craft micro brewery in Cork City is aged in a first fill, ex-Bourbon, American white oak cask for 3 months.
The stout is then disgorged from this cask. The whiskey is then put into the STOUT cask for a further 6 months to ‘finish’.
NOSE – A distinctive full bodied malty aroma with sweet vanilla and roasted coffee bean overtones.
TASTE – Sweet, hoppy, biscuit taste, with a distinctive roasted coffee bean twist.
FINISH – Sweet caramel, perfectly balanced with a long, smooth, creamy finish.
