Thomas Connolly Single Cask Release
A tripled casked whiskey with a rich imperial stout finish.
After our successful limited edition release in December 2021 between Sligo’s premier Lough Gill distillery – Athrú & Sligo’s oldest heritage pub Thomas Connolly, we are delighted to announce a new limited edition Single Cask Release, again in partnership with Athrú.
A nod to our heritage of bottling fine whiskey and porter, this incredible single malt Irish whiskey has been matured in three different casks of bourbon, oloroso and finished in an imperial stout. It combines roasted smokiness with intense & complex flavours of imperial stout, released from the rich flavours of the wood, leading to an incredibly long warm finish combining rounded fruit notes with caramel sweetness.
Available now on Pre-Order, the whiskey can be collected directly from our heritage pub on the 16th of March, with national and international delivery options also available.
Retailing at €95 a bottle and limited to 340 bottles, this can now be pre-ordered directly by following this link https://www.thomasconnollysligo.com/singlecaskimperialstoutwhiskey
