Micheal O Coileain was a legendary Irish hero and was the spearhead of Ireland's struggle for independence. His spirit lives on in this finely crafted single malt.
Michael Collins Irish Single Malt Whiskey 40% Cooley
A rich sweet compote of stewed cranberries and mulberries with coatings of vanilla and marzipan, the barley is there but subdued by the weight of the overpowering richness of sweet berried fruits and caramel. Eventually a hint of the Cooley peat emerges.
Sherry sweet and softly mouth coating, the mid palate kicks in with the fruit 'n spice battling with the oak and tannins, leaving a lingering vinous and oak finish.
Very, very drinkable and one of the better Irish single malts. 84.
