FERCULLEN 8 - POWERSCOURT DISTILLERY
Fercullen 8 years is an exquisite Irish whiskey that represents the blending together of carefully selected casks of aged malt and grain whiskies. Mellowed by time in a soft Irish climate, tones of citrus and vanilla emerge from grain, malt and oak.
NOSE: Sweet vanilla, citrus, honey, spices, almonds, candy orange and oak.
PALATE: Smooth, crisp, grain, combinations of malt, caramel, fruit and sweetness.
FINISH: Long lasting sweet vanilla and toasted oak finish.
FOOD PAIRING: This whiskey pairs well with charcuterie, especially salamis and chorizo. The light spice in the cured meats works well with the light spice in the whiskey. Citrus notes in the whiskey give a refreshing contrast to the meat and its high alcohol content cuts through the fatty meats very well, creating a lively mouthfeel. We choose high welfare, free-range meats to reflect our sustainable ethos.
