This is a bit young, but it's interesting and this gives an impression of where this young Irish distillery is going. They are starting with terroir front and centre with single farm origin bottles and then these will be blended to create core expression single malts in the future. This is the first of these 'blends' with the word cuvée which is the French word meaning blend used in the wine industry. This blend has a mix of first fill and virgin American Oak, French Oak and Vino de Naranja casks aged for 4 years. Note Waterford's stills and several key people are from or have a background in Scottish whisky so they spell whisky without the Irish 'e'. 

Distillery Notes:

Nose
Red apples, fresh dry soil, breadcrust, green foliage, lavender, digestive biscuits, oranges, barmbrack, over ripe banana skin, a summer flower bed, fresh mint, coffee cake.


Taste
Clove sweets, white pepper, oily, grapefruit, lemon zest, dark chocolate, dry toast, cherries, granola bar, dried herbs, aniseed, green olives, 3 peel marmalade.


Finish
Pepper up front with oily spiciness that softens, starts dry but then gets mouth-watering & lingers where I close my eyes and relax!
