W.D. O’CONNELL WHISKEY MERCHANTS BRING BACK TWO SINGLE CASK CLASSICS

On December 4, 2021, W.D O’Connell Whiskey Merchants will release two single cask classics, a 19 year-old single malt from their PX Series, and a 13 year-old single malt from their Sherry Series. 

For the first time, our single casks will be shared between Ireland and some of our export markets. Belgium, Germany, Netherlands & Luxembourg will all receive an allocation so we are bringing out a total three single cask releases for Christmas 2021, with a third coming online by December 17th.

PX SERIES 19 YEAR OLD SINGLE MALT

The 3rd release in the PX Series is a single cask of 342 bottles and a return to the 70 cl format from the first PX bottling.The 19-year old single malt was distilled at Cooley and matured in first-fill ex-bourbon casks for 17 years before a second maturation for 30 months in ex-Pedro Ximénez sherry casks. Bottled at 46%, non-chill filtered with no added colour, it is a rich, full bodied Irish whiskey that showcases the continued progression of the limited series of Pedro Ximénez-influenced single malt Irish whiskeys.
