The Legendary Red Silkie Irish Whiskey
The first in a series of limited-edition releases from the Legendary Silkie Irish Whiskey Collection, Red Silkie is inspired by the final journey of Donegal nobleman, Red Hugh O’Donnell, The Legendary Red Silkie is finished in both Rioja and Ribera del Duero wine casks, giving an aromatic sweetness with dry wine notes.
This edition of Silkie not only draws inspiration from the folklore of Donegal, but of the rich history and heritage of the county. Wines from the Ribera region tend to be full bodied with firm tannins while Rioja wines lead with big fruit flavors.

Palate: Aromatic and sweet, strawberry coulis, marmalade, dried fruit steeping in Earl Grey tea, opens to dry wine notes, and oak tannins and maintains a crisp freshness
