Knappogue Castle 16 Year Old Twin Wood. Photo courtesy Castle Brands. This Irish single malt was finished in ex-Sherry casks after 15 years in ex-Bourbon barrels, and the nose has mild spicy notes of allspice and clove, along with dried apricots, figs, and a touch of oak. The taste is velvety and fruity with orange peel, peaches, apricots, and hints of raisins and honey. The finish lingers nicely with fruity notes and a hint of spices. (December, 2013)
